Lady Victoria Hervey enjoys a boat ride with Calum Best

She has jetted to sunny Barbados for a festive getaway, flashing her incredibly slender physique in an array of glamorous bathing suits.

And Lady Victoria Hervey appeared in high spirits as she enjoyed an idyllic ride on a catamaran during her sunny holiday on Saturday where she was joined by media personality and old friend Calum Best.

Showcasing her slender physique in a multi-coloured strapped playsuit, the 41-year-old socialite dazzled alongside Calum who proved himself to be in full relaxation mode as he puffed on a cigarette with a group of friends.

Lady Victoria commanded attention in her striking number as she caught up on her glowing tan with its light fabric feature, teamed with gold gladiator sandals.

Giving a peek at her toned limbs, the reality star paired her ensemble with beaded bangles as her loosely tousled blonde locks fell against her upper back.

She opted for minimally neutral makeup as she graced the shores in light pink lipstick and heavy eyeliner. 

The English aristocrat was in the company of Calum, who uncharacteristically covered up his tattooed bod in a white v-neck top, and plain grey shorts.

However, back in April she came to worldwide prominence after news emerged she had a threesome with Mel B and her estranged husband Stephen Belafonte.   

The television sensation was said to be terrified that their antics had been recorded by Stephen and it would be leaked to the media.

‘She is absolutely mortified that her sex life could become public property,’ a close friend told DailyMail.com in an exclusive interview.

‘The last thing she wants is to star in a sordid sex tape or to have horrible details of her private life dragged through the divorce courts.’ 

Media personality: Calum rose to prominence as she fronted the first series of Love Island in 2005, where he was joined by Victoria's younger sister Lady Isabella, ex-Atomic Kitten star Liz McClarnon, and actress Judi Shekoni

The incident happened in 2002 while the family were away on holiday, and it came after George assured he was finally cured of his addiction to drink.

He explained: ‘I knew he had just swigged from this bottle. And it was like f**k! It ended right there. I wanted to give up then totally.   

‘From then on it was just back to drinking. And he drank and drank until it ended. I remember leaving that trip so confused and upset and distraught.’

Talking about how this set Calum himself on a downward spiral, the current CBB star said: ‘I came back and snorted and drank and s***ged my way through everything.’

George’s battle with alcoholism finally took his life in 2005, which sent Calum into a tailspin of self destruction and grief.

‘I didn’t know my a*s from my elbow and I was going here, there and everywhere with no shame or morals. I had years of grief. Constant f**king grief.

‘There was a time right after I lost my old man from 24 to 27 where I drank every day and I did drugs and slept around and I built a horrible reputation for myself.

‘I would walk down the street staring at the floor because I didn’t want people to say “there’s that p***k Calum Best”.’

Calum said that before his father died his relationship wasn’t at all healthy, due to George’s own hedonistic behaviour.

‘I was a young kid desperate for emotion,’ he said. ‘I would reach out with all this emotion and he would not know how to give it back. I was so confused by that.There was no depth to it.’

‘When my dad was alive there was always hope. I always had hope that me and him were going to form a relationship. But when he died I lost that hope.’
