Una Healy has embraced sea swimming as she braved the waters this weekend in Dublin. 

The singer and former Saturdays star did not seem bothered by the chilly conditions as she plunged into the sea.

And fans told her she looked “incredible” as she donned a Bond-girl style, long-sleeved wetsuit for the pictures she shared on Instagram.

As well as a pop star, Una - who recently turned 40 - is well known for her fitness and active lifestyle. As she’s a former all-Ireland champion swimmer she won’t have been too daunted by the chilly conditions.

She used to train regularly as a child in a swimming pool in her native Thurles.

In the past, the star has even said she might have been an Olympic swimmer had she not turned to music.

Her passion for fitness led to her presenting ITV sports contest Let’s Get Gold during the London Olympics.

The star has been getting into the festive spirit with her kids this weekend, sharing another photo as they went to buy a Christmas tree together.

Earlier in the week, she took her children to see the pantomime Aladdin, starring Jake Carter, in the capital.
