The actress recently bid goodbye to Coronation Street after playing Eva Price for seven years.
And Catherine has wasted no time in kicking back and relaxing, doing just that as she enjoyed the UK heatwave.
Taking to her Catherine Tyldesley Instagram, the 34-year-old posted a picture of herself lapping up the rays in a garden.
Looking every inch the swimsuit siren, the mum-of-one wowed in a plunging black one-piece that hugged her curves in all the right places.
With her newly-dyed brunette locks styled in a chic bun, the starlet flashed a winning grin as she stared into the distance.
Captioning the shot for her 402k followers, the Manchester native wrote: “Current situation… Happy much?”
For good measure, the small screen sensation added several smiley emojis and happy faces to the post.
As fans of Catherine will know all too well, the actress is dedicated to her fitness and clean-eating regime.

Ahead of her time on the ITV soap, the Brit beauty underwent a dramatic weight loss transformation.
At her heaviest, Catherine wore a dress size 22 and weighed 15 stone when she was 18 years old.
The Corrie babe often posts videos of her workouts online, documenting her progress with fans.
Catherine didn’t hesitate in switching up her look after filming her final scenes as Eva.

Eager to rid herself of her character’s trademark blonde locks, the actress dyed her hair brunette last week.
And fans were quick to show their approval for the unexpected makeover.
Commenting on the change, one supporter noted: “You look so much more elegant with darker hair. Just stunning.”
While another raved: “Cath, I’m in love with the new hair. You suit it so much.”
