Emmerdales Alicia Metcalfe star floors fans as she showcases taut abs in bikini

Ex-Emmerdale star Natalie Anderson put her incredible figure front and centre as she stripped to a bikini for cold water dip on Tuesday (January 3).

The actress, 41, is best known for playing Alicia Metcalfe on the ITV soap, making her first appearance in 2010 and remaining a core member of the cast for five years.

Taking to her Instagram, which has racked up a hefty 112,000 followers, Natalie looked nothing short of sensational as she posed for a duo of snaps taken immediately after braving the ice cold water.

The brunette beauty paraded her taut abs and lithe legs wearing a patterned triangle bikini held together by string.

Sweeping her tresses into a messy bun, the soap star radiated beauty as she went makeup free for the candid snaps.

In the caption, Natalie opened up to her followers and confessed the cold water dip was the perfect way to curb her anxiety.

She penned: "Bring on the snow! I dipped my toe into cold therapy and I actually really loved it!

"Ok I bottled out of a Boxing Day plunge but I’m definitely out this year for some cold water dips! You’re in charge of this!"

Natalie continued: "Anxiety is a bugger and when it’s bad making friends with the cold is a great way to curb it.

"So this year I’ll be trying to find my inner Elsa… let’s see how many cold water dips I can rack up this 2023."

Just before her final scenes aired on Emmerdale, Natalie revealed the reason she decided to leave the soap was because she wanted to spend more time with her son, Freddie.

Speaking on Lorraine, she explained: "It was easily a year in the making, that decision.

"To be honest, the main thing was my little boy. I went back to work really early after I had him… he was 11 weeks old when I went back to work."

Natalie, who also starred on Hollyoaks in 2021, admitted the 12 hour days were too much for her and meant she would sometimes go a whole week without seeing her son.
