THE Only Way Is Essex's glamour girl Maria Fowler gives a glimpse of what's made her more than just an extra on the cult hit.
The saucy star of the "living soap" peeled off to show that she's got what it takes to keep viewers tuning in when the show return for its third series later this year.
Pretty Maria was once slammed by co-star Kirk Norcross for being nothing more than an extra on the popular show.
But the 24-year-old proved she's just looks extra special - particularly in a swimsuit.
Despite her fun-loving attitude on the ITV2 programme, Maria admits she also has a serious side.
The model, originally from Derby, said she's working to raise money for a cancer charity after her mum was diagnosed with the disease.
Maria explained her mum, Trudy, received the shock news that she had breast cancer five years ago but has now beaten the disease.
The reality TV star has pledged to try and raise £2,000 for Cancer Research UK's Race for Life in London's Battersea Park next week and hopes fans of The Only Way Is Essex will help out with sponsorship.
She said: "I'm really looking forward to joining all the girls down at Battersea Park next week for Tesco and Cancer Research UK's Race for Life. This will be my second Race for Life and I can't wait.
"Everyone is there for such a great cause and it's something close to my heart as my mum was diagnosed with breast cancer five years ago.
"I really hope to raise as much money as possible for Cancer Research UK as they do such amazing work for all cancers. If anyone wants to sponsor please make sure you tweet me @mariafowler and I will give you a personal shout and thank you on there.
