New mum Nadine Mulkerrin has shared some amazing photos of her post-baby body on Instagram.

Hollyoaks star Nadine Mulkerrin welcomed her first son Reggie with her co-star fiance Rory Douglas-Speed last week.

And now the actress - who plays Cleo McQueen - has been praised by fans after she showed off her post-baby body online.

Sharing two naked images and one underwear shot on Instagram, 26-year-old Nadine opened up about the realities of being a new parent, admitting it had been ‘tough’ on her body.

The star added: “1 Week Postpartum! Was thinking should I really post a pic of my bare a** on insta …

“Then I thought b****r it!! The recovery is tough, the tears have lifted, my t**s are big brown aggressive and slightly Pamela Anderson-esque but you can’t do anything fun with them!
