RARELY seen star of The X Factor Louisa Johnson has been spotted showing off her tattoos in a tiny thong bikini in Ibiza.
The singer jetted off to the Spanish island this week, where she has been spotted enjoying the sunshine on the beach.
Louisa, 24, who won the twelfth series of the show back in 2015, slipped into a cream bikini as she relaxed at Cala Bassa Beach Club.
The star smiled wide as she chatted and laughed with friends on the white sand as she enjoyed some much-needed downtime this week.
The So Good singer – whose bikini was embellished with tiny shells – completed her look with a straw hat and delicate gold jewellery.
Louisa showed off her incredible figure, and toned tummy, as well as her chest and shoulder tattoos, letting her blonde locks flow freely.

It comes as Louisa takes time out from supporting West Life on their The Wild Dreams Tour – after performing with them in Colchester.
Louisa, who won The X Factor back in 2017, is also due to appear at Doncaster’s TFest line-up in September this year.
L'année dernière, Louisa revealed she fell into such a deep depression in the years after her victory that she contemplated suicide.
She signed a record deal with Simon Cowell and scored a top ten hit with her debut single, a cover of Bob Dylan’s Forever Young.

But within months of her triumph, Louisa found herself in a dark place mentally, grappling with life in the spotlight and unable to cope with the pressures of fame.
Despite a sell-out UK tour in 2016 and a successful collaboration with Clean Bandit, she would spend the next four years battling depression, panic attacks and PTSD.
Things reached a crisis point on her 23rd birthday in January this year when thoughts about taking her life clouded her mind and she checked into rehab to recover.
Louisa, from Thurrock, Essex, said of the dark times: “I woke up and just didn’t want to be here any more.
“I was so fed up, I was done. I wanted someone to shake me. The unhappiness was like an annoying gnat that wouldn’t go away — it kept nagging at me, bugging me.
“I thought about taking my own life. But it was an idea rather than, ‘This is it, I’m doing it’.

“I have, what I like to call, a ball of fire inside me and I know I’d never do it because there is so much to look forward to in life. But that didn’t stop me thinking about it.
“As much as I’ve struggled, I know there’s a small part inside of me that’s a fighter. I won’t give up.”
