Amy Willerton was ready for some fun in the sun in this gorgeous tropical number earlier today.

Looking like she was set for her summer hols, all Amy needed was a beach backdrop and a piña colada in her hand and she would have been good to go.

But instead of clutching a cocktail, the former Miss Universe was holding onto pet pooch Lacey - who she is dogsitting - as she made her way into the ITV studios this morning.

Looking fabulous for her appearance on Lorraine, Amy glammed up her tropical all-in-one with a pair of black, heeled sandals and a stylish double-strapped bag to match.

Chatting about how her life has changed since taking part in I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! last year, Amy told host Kate Garraway she wasn't expecting to receive so much attention after the show.

She said: "Coming out of the jungle it was a very interesting time because I did not plan for all the attention that it was going to bring to me. I really thought nobody knows who I am, I'm going to be the first out."

Amy was fifth to be evicted from the show in a double eviction with Joey Essex. After growing close while in the jungle, Amy and Joey were thought to have dated after they had left.

Former TOWIE star Joey then went on to deny he was ever in a relationship with Amy back in January this year.

When quizzed about their romance, Amy did not deny the pair had dated, but said things with her and Joey were not portrayed truthfully.

She said: "I really would say that [our relationship] was not put across quite how it was. For me I knew there was a lot of pressure for us to be in a relationship after the show because it was kind of the expected thing... we were both the young people in the show.

"But if I have a relationship, I want it to be totally natural, totally genuine and for somebody to like me for me and not for any other reason."

Suggesting she would keep any relationship private, Amy metaphorically said: "The whole world gets your dinner, I think your dessert should be kept to yourself."

Rebecca and Amy clashed while in the jungle.

Amy was seen to cause controversy among her other I'm A Celeb camp mates as she chose to ignore the show's contraband rules.

After everyone had left the jungle, Amy publicly clashed with Olympian Rebecca Adlington during the show's wrap party on I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! Coming Out.

Her appearance on the show sparked a heated debate about the pressures of beauty and viewers saw Rebecca get visibly upset as she spoke out about her insecurities with the other girls in the camp.

When asked if she felt for Rebecca after seeing their chat back, Amy said: "You know what I said to Becky? Looks last for 10-15 years, your achievements will last forever. You've done something that nobody has done and you should feel incredibly proud of yourself."

The double gold-winning champion has slimmed down and had a nose job since returning from Australia last year. Speaking about her former camp mate's new look, Amy said:

"She looks incredible, I was so pleased for her because I remember her telling me she wanted to lose weight for her wedding and she's done that. In terms of the nose job, I think surgery is a personal choice, we have our own bodies and we should be allowed to choose what we do with them."
