Emmerdale's Rebecca Sarker shares cheeky snap of her bum as she recovers from ITV's The Games

Rebecca Sarker gave a glimpse of her incredible figure and fitness prowess as she took part in The Games last week. The Emmerdale actress was one of 12 celebrities taking part in the Channel 4 reboot which aired throughout the week live on ITV.

The Manpreet Sharma actress went up against Christine McGuinness, Chelcee Grimes, Olivia Attwood, Phoenix Gulzar-Brown and Lucrezia Millarini in a series of Olympic-style events after training for three months for the competition. Each competitor racked up points as they went along before a male and female winner was chosen on Friday (May 13).

Rebecca, who at 47 was the oldest to be taking part in the show, which was fronted by Holly Willoughby and Freddie Flintoff, put in an impressive effort in the women's weight lifting before picking up a bronze medal overall in the reality sporting programme.

After keeping a low profile over the weekend, the soap star returned to social media on Sunday and shared a cheek6y snap of herself, or should we say her bottom, on Twitter and Instagram. It showed her lying exhausted on her bed following an intense week, dressed in just a pink top and blue, spotted underwear.

She captioned the post: "Out like a light! Bottom line [peach emoji], @thegamestv was an amazing experience. Highs, lows, exhaustion, exhilaration. All’s well that ends well."

ITV newsreader Lucrezia, who became close friends with Rebecca throughout the competition, wrote: "Oiiiiii oiiiiiiii" while her on-screen partner Kevin Mathurin, who plays Emmerdale's vicar Charles, commented: "Thank you, Jesus."

Fans were also quick to comment on the post. @death_dealer50 said: "Cheeky lol." @ashley_gardner111 replied; "Awww haha! You done amazing!!!"

@marklindsay1711 commented: "Well done you, well deserved cheeky." @harlie_r1925 shared: "Got be a contender for rear of year."

During the final Rebecca was supported by her former on-screen sister Paige Sandhu, who played the manic Meena Jutla in Emmerdale. Sharing a picture of them both on Instagram live on the track, Rebecca said: " Little sis @paige_sandhu. Thank you for coming to @thegamestv final to support me. Hope I made you proud with a place on that beautiful podium. Love you."

Paige, who left the soap in dramatic style earlier this year as serial killer nurse Meena was finally imprisoned for her crimes, replied: " Love ya big sis! You the winner on our hearts."

Rebecca finished in third place alongside Harry Potter actor Josh Herdman while former Coronation Street star Ryan Thomas took second place alongside Mel B's daughter and influencer Phoenix. But topping The Games podium was musician and footballer Chelcee and former Love Island star Wes Nelson, who also topped the leaderboard as the overall winner.
