Summer babe! Home and Away star Ada Nicodemou flaunts her fit physique in a colourful bikini after revealing her battle with body image


Home and Away star Ada Nicodemou revealed earlier this year she had struggled with body image issues in the past.

But the 44-year-old actress looked more confident than ever on Wednesday as she posed poolside in a striped red bikini.

Ada smiled while reading a magazine on a sun lounger, in a gallery of sun-drenched photos shared to Instagram.

The photos highlighted Ada’s taut tummy, toned legs and arms.

Ada stayed sun-safe and accessorised with a tan hat and oversized sunglasses.

It comes after the mother of one told The Daily Telegraph in June that body image was something she’d struggled with in the past.

‘I’m not going to lie and say that there haven’t been times that I am not as confident as I should be,’ she told the newspaper.

Ada continued: ‘We all have those moments and I still do now, but for the majority of times I surround myself with people I love.

‘I think overall I am confident in my own skin.’

The actress added that she stays in shape by eating healthy and exercising regularly.

In April, Ada told Who magazine she considers exercise a form of self-care as she balances her busy career with raising her son Johnas.

‘I make sure that my exercise is a priority – that means I’m a priority, too,’ she said.

‘Once I get my weekly schedule from work, the first thing I do is map out when I’ll exercise. I will write this into my diary and basically set a date with myself.

‘My workouts are time for myself, so they’re very important to me and always have been.’

Ada tries to get to bed early so she’s up at 4.30am for a 30-minute training session before work.

She exercises three to four times a week, and her regimen includes a combination of weight training, cardio, boxing, Pilates and walks, plus a few sessions with a personal trainer.
