ULRIKA Jonsson has sent pulses racing after showing off her bikini body in a sizzling selfie.
The telly star, 54, posed for the photo in her bathroom mirror as temperatures across the UK soared.
Ulrika's pretty two piece featured a frilled halter neck top but she coyly hid her face from the camera as she snapped the picture.
Posting the shot on Instagram, the Celebrity SAS: Who Dares Wins star admitted her disbelief at the September heatwave.
Captioning the photograph, Ulrika said: "Is it really bikini weather?"
On Sunday night, Ulrika was seen withdrawing from this year's series of Celebrity SAS on medical grounds.
The former Gladiators host suffered a number of health issues on thecourse and the team felt it would not have been safe for her to carry on.
It came after the contestants had to take part in a gruelling mud fight.
FIGHTER UNTIL THE END
Chief Medical Expert Sundeep Chohan told Ulrika: "The thing is you're a fighter. You still have that warrior spirit in you where you're just going to plod on regardless.
"But now it's becoming a safety issue so medically I'm going to be withdrawing you."
Ant Middleton told Ulrika she had been "amazing" but said he agreed with Sundeep's decision.
"Obviously there's criteria's where we can't push you from a safety point of view but you just kept on going and going," he said.
"That's the worry about it is that you would just keep on going until the point it wasn't safe for you but you've been amazing."
It was the singular, most profound experience of my entire life, without exception."
Ulrika had previously written about her experience on Celebrity SAS: Who Dares Wins for The Sun.
She penned last month: "The second the course starts you feel the relentless and rigid breath of strict and uncompromising men on your skin.
"The fear and shock chills you — takes your breath away. It’s hard to focus in the dark, in the darkness of a black hood, when you are forced to walk like a chain gang.
"As someone who fears authority, I was in pursuit of not stepping out of line, but I could barely walk in a straight one, such was the terror stunning my body."
However, Ulrika added: "It was the singular, most profound experience of my entire life, without exception.
"It forced introspection, reassessment, establishment of needs and boundaries, emotional and psychological goals.
"Physically, I learnt what my little body is capable of and perhaps what it is not. I learnt where my strength comes from and how I need to nurture it.
"I learnt that I am more than just a parent, more than just a mum, more than just a woman. That I may be too much for some but am never not enough."
