She narrowly escaped Britain’s third national
Looking good: Montana Brown looked like she was enjoying her freedom on the Caribbean island of Barbaods as she soaked up the sun at the beach on Saturday
Montana showcased her lithe physique on the outing as she donned a white patterned bikini top.
Displaying her toned midriff, the reality star tied a shirt around her waist as she went for a stroll with a friend.
Styling her brunette locks into an updo, Montana also sported a pair of sunglasses as she made the most of the warm weather.
It comes after Montana came under fire for sharing ‘what she’s been doing in lockdown’, despite having been in Barbados when the UK was plunged into a third lockdown.

Alongside her clip, she penned: ‘when people ask what you’ve been doing in lockdown…. with my Babygirl @frankiebowdenn’.
The TV star was then slammed by Instagram users, who claimed that she was ‘hardly in lockdown’ as she had ‘escaped the UK’ in favour of balmy Barbados.
On December 20, London and surrounding areas were plunged into Tier 4, which saw travel abroad for leisure ‘not permitted’, with exceptions only allowed for reasons such as work, education and childcare.
One angry fan fumed: ‘When the rest of the U.K. are following the rules and not travelling…..’

While another commented: ‘LOCKDOWN?! Please stop’
And a third wrote: ‘Hardly lockdown. Do anything to escape the uk whilst we’re all in the s**t’.
A fourth angrily penned: ‘How are you all getting away with this. Then rub it in everyones faces. It’s disgusting and you c list celebs need to stop putting this all over the internet.’
The Barbados government has recently brought in tough measures to suppress coronavirus transmission on the popular winter holiday destination.
Those breaking Covid laws on the island face an £18,000 fine or jail.

Her video comes as hoards of reality stars have been slammed for jetting off to the tropics for ‘work’ while the UK wallows under a third national lockdown back home.
Before jetting out to the Caribbean, Montana had asked her Instagram followers whether they would like her to share content from the trip due to current restrictions in the UK.
The majority voted yes, so Montana has since been sharing sizzling snaps of her basking in the winter sun on her balmy trip.
Prior to her jaunt in Barbados, the reality star spent time in the Maldives on a work trip.

Criticism: But the TV star was slammed by Instagram users, who claimed that the star was ‘hardly in lockdown’ as she had ‘escaped the UK’ in favour of balmy Barbados
Last month, the reality TV star hit back at critics who slammed her business trip to the Maldives in the midst of the ongoing pandemic and during lockdown.
Stressing she had carefully planned her trip to abide by guidelines, a spokesperson said: ‘Montana is in the Maldives for work purposes shooting her campaign for her company Swim Society. This is allowed under government guidelines.’
In a YouTube video shared by Montana ahead of the Maldives trip, the TV star joined her business partner in explaining: ‘Everybody has been isolating, I’m not going out.
‘The quarantine coming back from the Maldives has been lifted.’

She continued: ‘We’re being very careful. We don’t want people to think we’re being sneaky. It is an influencer trip but we’re not being sneaky.
‘I can’t take a picture out in the garden with the leaves, I can’t put my wellies on.’
Her latest carefree video comes after it was announced on Friday that the rule forcing travellers to present a negative COVID-19 test before travelling to the UK will be imposed next week to give 100,000 Britons abroad the chance to get home.
The announcement may be particularly daunting for many holidaymakers as they struggle to get access to mass testing facilities at their holiday destinations.
