The shots offered a glimpse into her life, from blissful moments with her long-distance boyfriend, professional footballer Ben Siegrist, to heartwarming shots with friends and family, as well as breathtaking scenery from her recent trip to Majorca.

However, it was one particular snapshot that seemed to ignite conversation, featuring Brittany leaping into the ocean, showcasing her peachy posterior in a bikini.


"Why would you post pic 3?" questioned one Instagram user in the comments, sparking the ire of Brittany's loyal following, who swiftly rallied in her defence.

"Why not?" promptly responded another follower. "If my booty looked like that, I'd post it too."

The debate continued, with someone else chiming in, "Why, booty pics are a problem? It's a part of our bodies."

Another cheekily suggested, "Jealous of her cute bum?"

Plenty of others were here for the booty shot, with former Married at First Sight alum Cyrelle Paule adding her two cents, enthusiastically commenting, "That booty," along with several fire emojis.

"Brit!!! You look smoking," another fan exclaimed, while someone else praised her "strong glutes."

"Dayum," wrote yet another fan, accompanied by an all-too-appropriate peach emoji.

The podcaster, radio host and reality TV star ‘soft launched’ boyfriend Ben Siegrist earlier this year, sharing a snap of a romantic date with a mystery man while in Scotland.

The reality TV star went on to show a snippet of Ben’s face in an Instagram montage of her time in Scotland before cutting to a shot of herself smiling at him.
