The heartbreak diet works wonders! Newly-divorced Kym Marsh displays her svelte bikini body in a cherry print two-piece
Look at what you're missing, Jamie: It would seem the heartbreak diet has been working wonders for Kym Marsh if her appearance on the beach in Tenerife last week is anything to go by

Sensibly sheltering herself from the piercing winter sun on the Canary Islands, teenager Emily threw a bright green American football top over her bikini, while wearing her long strawberry blonde locks tumbling in loose waves around her shoulders.
Meanwhile, little Polly looked cute as a button in an oversized red T-shirt and a bright pink Minnie Mouse baseball cap.

A source told Closer magazine: 'Kym has had a horrendous few months. She's been broken-hearted, but exercise has helped take her ind off things and stop her feeling so hurt. She says it's tough to look so toned after having three kids, so she's really proud of her taut stomach now.
'She feels like a completely different woman. For the past month, she's been careful about what she eats and has avoided heavy carbs - sticking mainly to lean proteins with fish and veg. She still allows herself treats - if she wants cake, she'll have it
'She's been having personal-training sessions since the summer, but stepped things up before Christmas, doing everything from running to sit-ups. She works out at least three times a week - it's been exhausting, but she feels more confident than ever.'

Kym and Jamie were granted a 'quickie divorce' on Friday, when their 16-month marriage was legally dissolved in less than one minute at 10.50am.
The couple started dating in July 2008, before tying the knot in September 2012. But they suffered heartbreak with their first child, son Archie, died moments after his birth after coming into the world 18 weeks prematurely in February 2009.
After splitting in October 2013 amid allegations of cheating on her part, Kym filed for divorce later that month, citing Jamie's 'unreasonable behaviour'.

Kym was previously married to EastEnders star Jack Ryder, and has two children, David, 18, and Emily, 15, from her previous relationship with builder Dave Cunliffe.
As his marriage was legally ended, Jamie, 33, raised eyebrows by jetting off to Los Angeles with 23-year-old model, Chloe Peers.
And now Corrie star Kym is said to be planning legal action against her ex-husband amid claims that she hasn’t received a penny in child support from Jamie since their acrimonious split last October.

A source told the Sun on Sunday newspaper: 'Jamie hasn’t helped pay for her in the three months since they split.
'She’s asked him for money twice and he’s basically told her to get lost. Her solicitor has got involved.
'She isn’t paid as much as people think – and definitely not as much as Jamie.'
