Sexy in stripes: Tulisa Contostavlos showed off her womanly curves in a frilly two-piece as she enjoyed a minibreak in Spain last week
When Cheryl Cole was a judge on The X Factor, there were constantly concerns about her weight.
But it seems there won't be any such worries about her replacement, Tulisa Contostavlos, who proudly displayed her feminine curves in a sexy striped bikini as she holidayed in Spain last week.
The 23-year-old singer looked happy and relaxed as she basked in the sunshine and played ball games with a friend in the sea.
Tulisa also went make-up free as she enjoyed the warm weather, showing off her enviably clear skin.

The X Factor star recently spoke about how she maintains her figure, admitting she doesn't worry too much about what she eats.
She said: 'My diet is terrible, I don't know how I stay slim, I should really be obese! Sometimes I can eat healthily if I fancy cooking or I'll eat out. Anything I want - that's my diet!
'If I'm hungry I'll eat, and I'll eat anything that's there. And I don't drink water! Lucozade, Ribena or apple juice that is all I drink, all day long, so I'm pretty unhealthy.'
The N-Dubz star was enjoying a quick minibreak in between her commitments with The X Factor and her band.

But it seems juggling between her N-Dubz work and television career isn't likely to be a problem for much longer, as bandmate Dappy revealed earlier this week the band are planning to split.
He explained: 'The band is definitely going to quiet down for the next year-and-a-half to two years.
'We may release some stuff every six months but it will definitely be quieter. Then, at the end of that period, we will do a Greatest Hits or Best of N-Dubz. Then that’ll be it: finished.'
N-Dubz no more? Dappy revealed that N-Dubz will be quieting down over the next two years, before splitting
In the meantime, however, Tulisa is planning to launch her solo career, and wrote on Twitter over the weekend that she is currently recording tracks for her debut solo record.
She tweeted: 'I think I might of just finished recording my first single? Won't speak 2 soon there's more 2 come! Woohoo.'
Tulisa later added: 'Right straight back in the booth 2 record the next 1! I'm on a roll waayheey!'

Speaking recently about the kind of music she is hoping to treat fans to with the record, Tulisa said: 'I'd like to make a combination of things. I want to get on a bit of dance stuff. I'd love to work with someone like Swedish House Mafia, try something different.
'I also want to do acoustic things, just work from scratch with instruments, whether it be strings or piano and just real melodic music.
'That's what I'd like to do. Some nice ballads as well. Because that's what I'm about really, growing up.'
