Patsy Kensit has impressed fans by sharing an 'ageless' bikini selfie after revealing she is set to marry for the fifth time.

The EastEnders actor, 54, posted the candid swimwear snapshot of herself in a hot pink bandeau bikini to her Instagram page and it quickly clocked up plenty of likes with users praising her youthful looks.

"You're more than beautiful!!' You're an ageless phenomenon!!" one user wrote.

"Natural beauty, forever young," another agreed.

"You’ve never looked better Patsy. Love looks good on you," yet another fan added, while another commented she looked "20 years younger".

Opting for minimal make-up in the bathroom holiday snap, Kensit revealed her toned body in the colour pop two-piece.

"Off snorkelling," she captioned the post.

Earlier this month Kensit revealed she is set to tie the knot again after her partner Patric Cassidy, 58, popped the question.

Last year the actor confessed she only counts two of her previous four marriages as "significant" in her life.

The 54-year-old has had four husbands, including Simple Minds frontman Jim Kerr and Oasis singer Liam Gallagher.

"Well, I married all my boyfriends, so... that was something that I've learned I needn't do," she revealed on the Postcards From Midlife podcast.

"I can't change the rules of the law... [but] I was with Jim, and Lennon's dad for years, so I kind of count them as my two marriages.

"I know that's not allowed, I know there was a ceremony," she continued. "But I feel that those were the really significant relationships and very, very deep and wonderful in so many ways."

Kensit isn't the only celebrity to celebrate a happy occasion by sharing a bikini selfie recently.

Last week Amanda Holden marked her 52nd birthday by posting a picture of herself in a bikini on holiday with her family.

The TV personality and Britain’s Got Talent judge posed up a storm in the snap, displaying her toned figure in a pink triangle bikini and floaty kaftan.

She completed the look with a black straw hat, large sunglasses and a tropical coconut with a straw.

Posting to her nearly two million Instagram followers, Holden captioned the image: “52 today - grateful to be alive and happy with people I love.”

Of course the snap was an immediate hit with fans who complimented the star on her incredibly youthful look.

“Fittest 52 year old alive [sic]” wrote Lou Teasdale, whilst Capital Breakfast host Sian Welby commented that the star was simply “Flawless at 52”.
