During a family break to the luxury holiday destination, the ex-glamour model was pictured posing in a variety of busty tops and swimwear.

“This is against the law and we take these allegations very seriously,” a Maldives Police Service spokesman told The Sun.
The Maldives, made up of more than 200 islands, is an Islamic country and has strict laws on tourists’ behaviour and dress while they’re visiting.
Nude or topless sunbathing is not permitted – even on the relatively laid-back resort islands – and in some parts of the country, bikinis and revealing clothing that shows anything below the elbows, knees or shoulders is banned.
Public displays of affection are also frowned upon in the stricter areas – something Katie and Kieran might want to bear in mind.
