She’s believed to be going into the Celebrity Big Brother house when the new series starts on Tuesday.
So it’s no surprise Danniella Westbrook opted to top up her tan and get some fresh air before her supposed appearance in TV’s most famous household on a recent festive getaway.
The 42-year-old was joined on the Tenerife getaway by her new toyboy boyfriend George Arnold, who – at 23 years old – is just over half her age.

Love in the sun: Danniella Westbrook enjoyed a beach holiday in Tenerife in December with her new toyboy boyfriend George Arnold, shortly ahead of her rumoured stint in the Celebrity Big Brother house
But the serial cougar didn’t seem to pay any attention to the sizeable age gap between them as she enjoyed herself on the beach shortly before Christmas.
The former EastEnders actress showed off her slim yet shapely figure in a unique black swimsuit that certainly seemed to have her younger beau’s attention.
The one-piece included a very low plunging neckline – allowing for her entire cleavage to catch the sun’s rays – cut-out sides and a sheer front, revealing her navel underneath.
And, as she turned around, she revealed it to be completely backless, giving the illusion of a bikini from behind, her swirly lower back tattoo on full display.

Making sure she looked her absolute best, Danniella had a full face of make-up for the day, rocking a heavy smokey eye and bronzed cheeks.
She showed off her tanned limbs and waistline in the relatively racy one-piece, while George proceeded to cover her with suncream to make sure she was well and truly protected.
The handsome young man – who is believed to have been dating Danniella for a few months – showed off his toned physique and bare chest as he donned a pair of white beach shorts.

Writing on the social media site, she added along with the picture: ‘After a 12hr day on set crying in every scene but 2, I’m now driving 190 miles 2 c a certain someone for 24 hours #smitten. #southlondonbeau’.
Adding more detail, she wrote: ‘After a b****y s**t 2 years life is finally good and 2016 is the year of the Westbrook, new home , new man’.
‘Can’t sleep, as slept to [sic] much today… And George is out cold … I’m so jealous.. Hello @LeoDiCaprio movie & a cuppa in bed #SnuggledUp,’ she continued.
Although George is 19 years younger than she is, he isn’t the first toyboy the former soap star has dated.
She last dated 20-year-old toyboy Jude Moore, with whom she frequently put on a public display of affection – although it didn’t last.
