We thought the 28-year-old Essex girl looked as hot as ever in her latest snap, but it seems the lady herself wasn't so easily convinced...
"It's so embarrassing how pale I am without tan," Maria tweeted on Tuesday (3 March). "Is anyone else this pale? I can't bear it. I wish I could embrace it."
She also Instagrammed the same photograph, with the added words:
"It's proper embarrassing."
We know Maria is the co-owner of Amazing Tan and even fronts tanning training courses for students about the range, but c'mon Maria is pale skin really that embarrassing?
Surely that's a little harsh.
And tell that to the likes of fair-faced beauties like Kristen Stewart, Anna Hathaway and Emma Watson!
More importantly, we think Maria looks just as amazing (if not more so) with a natural glow. And her followers seem to agree...
"You have great skin you should embrace the paleness :)" reckoned one fan. With another adding:
"You look lovely without tan, embrace your English rose skin!!"
Obviously the Maria we all know and love works her fake tan to perfection, but this really does make a nice change if you ask us.
