She announced earlier this year that she has split from boyfriend, Greg Whitehurst, following a five-year romance.
And following her love split, Nikki Sanderson showcased her sizzling curves in a green lace bra and thong on Friday evening – leading to her former Coronation Street co-star, Ryan Thomas, playfully responded: ‘Someone’s single’.
The Hollyoaks actress, 36, sent temperatures soaring as she lounged on her bedroom floor at home and posted the selfie to Instagram.

Nikki styled her brunette tresses in a straight hairstyle and enhanced her stunning facial features with a soft make-up look.
She captioned the image: ‘Red & Green should never be seen…… Or should they?’
The actress appears to be in high sprits, despite separating from her boyfriend of five-years during lockdown.
In April, Nikki claimed the pair were ‘happier than ever’, but it didn’t last as the couple decided to part ways in July, with Greg’s profile spotted on the dating app, Bumble.

She recently told The Sun: ‘Sadly Greg and I have decided to separate. We remain friends and wish the best for each other in the future.’
Their relationship got off to a controversial start as Nikki began dating Greg in 2015, just ten months after she attended his wedding as a guest.
In an interview with OK! Magazine that year, she spoke on their romance: ‘[Greg’s] been blamed for something he didn’t do… in reality there was a third party who split them up on the other side.
‘It ended through no fault of Greg’s. People say, “Well, I wouldn’t want to be her mate because she’d steal my boyfriend,” I’d never do anything like that.’

She also confirmed in a statement to MailOnline that they got together shortly after his split from his previous partner, Sarah.
The actress added: ‘I have known Greg and his family for many years. Greg’s marriage ended in January, it was a very difficult time for him during which all of his friends and family supported him.’
