In one image, released on Monday, the Essex-raised beauty wows in an all-red ensemble, which includes a lacy bra and panties with chaps, as well as a cowgirl hat.

Another snap shows her confidently handling the reins on the mechanical bull as she sports a similarly barely-there patterned pink lingerie outfit.

With each full-length shot showing her wearing colourful heels, the musician also poses as a pageant queen, complete with a sash and tasselled opera gloves.

Charli, who appears in the stunning images under the creative direction of Sarah Shotton, described her experience of working with the lingerie giant as ‘iconic’.

She said in a statement: ‘Being a part of AP’s Xmas campaign was iconic! Nothing says Christmas like naughty and nice with a dash of cowgirl.

Rising to fame with her chart-topping 2013 hit I Love It, the singer hasn’t been afraid of expressing her larger-than-life persona through both her music and style.

And amid her busy work schedule, the Cross You Out songstress revealed she and Australian songwriter Troye Sivan used to enjoy some downtime by throwing raucous house parties in Los Angeles. 

On her wild days, the media personality told Dazed: ‘We went through this phase of just throwing like a f***load of parties.

‘We would just leave the doors open, send out the biggest group texts, and so many people came. Like, the police would come, it was a real nightmare. Our neighbours hated us. All our cars got keyed.’

Lydia Bright has revealed she was hospitalised during the early stages of her pregnancy due to stress after splitting from Lee Cronin.  

The TOWIE star, 29, hosted a Q&A session with her followers on Thursday morning, in which she revealed she was left heartbroken after the split and at the time her extreme sickness – which she claims was stress-induced – landed her in hospital. 

Lydia shocked fans when she revealed she’d split from Lee at the same as announcing her pregnancy and she has now shed more light on the break-up.

After a fan asked about how she coped, Lydia said: ‘The beginning was very hard. I’m so strong now but at 11 weeks I was completely heartbroken and lost. I was so worried that people would judge my situation…

‘Before my announcement shoot hit the shelves I was in hospital with sickness (probably due to the stress of it all)…

‘People are always quick to talk about the negative side of social media and the press, But I truly believe that my strength came from the support I received from strangers.’

Earlier this month, Lydia shared a snap from her last baby scan appointment, where she had been joined by Lee for the appointment.

Asked whether Lee is an ‘active part’ of her unborn baby’s life, Lydia responded: ‘Our baby was very much planned and we are both very excited for her arrival. Lee has been at every scan. Here we are with our midwife Justine.’

Another fan then probed: ‘If Lee is involved and it was planned, why are you not together?’

The reality star replied: ‘So many questions about me and Lee. I have learnt that things don’t always plan out the way you hoped and life isn’t always perfect and that’s ok.

‘I get so many messages from women who are in similar situations to me. My only advice is not to be bitter, focus on the miracle and whatever will be will be…..’

Elsewhere in the Q&A, Lydia revealed that her sister Georgia was the first person she told about her pregnancy, before gathering the rest of her family the next day to make the big reveal.

Lydia also added that although she had always been close with pal Lucy Mecklenburgh, the pair were even closer now because Lucy is also expecting her first child, with boyfriend Ryan Thomas.

Lydia announced in August that she was expecting her first child, a daughter, with her ex-boyfriend Lee Cronin in February next year.

While Lydia is pleased to become a first-time mother, the star confirmed she split from her long-term partner Lee after being in a relationship for more than two years.

The couple first briefly parted ways in January with Lydia confirming they had split for good in August.

Published

She’s usually the picture of professionalism on her ITV daytime show.

However, during Thursday’s installment of Lorraine, host Lorraine Kelly was left in fits of giggles as Dr Hilary Jones suggested that having sex could help cure a common cold.

The humorous moment came during a health segment called ‘fact or fiction’ where the pair were discussing which ‘cures’ actually help with a cold.

After talking through the wonders of chicken soup and dispelling the myth that wet hair gives you colds, talk soon turned to whether having sex could boost ones immune system. 

Announcing the next topic, Lorraine, 59, said loudly: ‘Having sex can boost your immune system’, before quickly adding: ‘it wasn’t an offer!’

As Dr Hilary, 66, gave her a cheeky grin, he requested that she ‘say that once more.’

To which the presenter said even more loudly: ‘Having sex can boost your immune system, is this true?’

Giving his expert opinion, Dr Hilary responded: ‘Apparently. According to researchers in Pennsylvania, they did a study and they reckon that those people who had sex at least once a week had 30% more Immunoglobulin A, which is a virus-busting anti-body.’

He then, with a smirk, continued: ‘I don’t know how many people were in the study but I’m sure they got lots of volunteers.’

At this, Lorraine lost her cool and burst into the giggles, before quickly composing herself.

Dr Hilary added: ‘There’s a little bit of evidence… but then you’d transmit the infection more wouldn’t you? Having a lot of sex.

Lorraine responded: ‘That’s what I’m thinking. If you’ve got the cold, and then you’re going to give it to the person, I would’ve thought.’

Agreeing with her, the GP said: ‘That’s what I would’ve thought, there’s pros and cons, mainly pros I should think.

Lorraine’s giggles comes as she rang in her 60th birthday in unique style last month as she jetted to Florida to try her hand at astronaut training.

The TV legend, who marks the milestone birthday on 30 November, revealed she had always been ‘obsessed’ with space after her father bought her a telescope and she watched the moon landing aged 10.

In light of her passion, Lorraine delightedly revealed she flew to the US to try her hand on the ‘ominously named’ Vomit Comet, where she experienced zero gravity and was seen to pour a cup of tea while floating in the air.

Lorraine revealed on her eponymous show last week that she had embarked on the incredible adventure while also penning a piece for The Sun about her travels.

Speaking about how she found her passion for space, she said: ‘It was a childhood dream come true. I watched the moon landings as a 10-year-old and it was absolutely life changing…

Here we are 50 years on and I’m going to get to experience a small part of what people like Neil Armstrong experienced. At the age of 60, I’m going back to school, but this is astronaut school.’
