Jenny Powell soaked up the sun in a yellow bikini in Turkey as she paid tribute to her late dad Leslie in an emotional Instagram post on Saturday.

The TV presenter, 54, showcased her figure in a bright two-piece as she reflected on on the significance of her holiday location to her father.

Jenny shared several photos of her dad as she explained she had ‘taken him to Turkey for his 90th Birthday before he passed away’ three years ago.

She shared a snap of Leslie beaming in front of a birthday cake and another of him next to a bed filled with balloons and the number 90 spelt out in flowers on it. 

She wrote: ‘My Dad loved loved the sun! He’d be that guy sitting on a rock .. no sun cream, no fancy sun bed, telling his daft stories and singing funny songs he’d made up to make us laugh! 

‘He came from South Africa and moved to the U.K. in the 1950’s and that’s where his heart and soul was.

‘I’m so very glad I got to take him to Turkey ( where I am now) for his 90th Birthday before he passed away just 3 years later..  I have thought about him loads and smiled about him even more and when I leave this place soon .. just like the sunshine.’

She added: ‘I’ll be taking the light and love of him wherever I go .. Enjoy your sunshine and make sure that the ones you’ve lost keep shining on you too.’ 

Jenny’s father passed away at the age of 93 in 2021 and she broke the news in a heart-breaking tribute alongside photos of the pair.

The TV star is currently on day six of her lavish getaway with her daughter Constance, 21, and continues to give fans an update on her Instagram Story.

She explained in a video: ‘Mother daughter vacation day six and were still talking although Connie did spend a bit of time in the room yesterday, think i was getting on her nerves.’ 

Jenny shares her children, Pollyanna and Constance with her ex-husband, Toby Baxendale, whom she separated from in 2009. 

She has since found love with sports therapist Martin.

Last year, Jenny left fans stunned as her lookalike daughter Connie, 19, joined her interview for a chat, with one viewer even commenting that ‘they’re like twins.’

Her UCL student daughter then joined the virtual chat from her home in London (Jenny was in Cheshire), where she described her mum as a ‘big personality’.

Speaking of their close relationship, she added: ‘She calls me enough – but I’m missing her.’

However, viewers couldn’t get over their similarity, with one tweeting: ‘Wow, they’re like twins. Jenny never ages! Stunning!’
