Drug mule Michaella McCollum has taken a swipe of people who criticised bikini snaps of her taken in Spain, as she returned to holiday there just four years after agreeing to smuggle drugs.

McCollum (24) was jailed for three years in 2013 after she was caught trying to smuggle 11kg of cocaine, worth almost €2million, in her luggage from Lima with Scottish woman Melissa Reid.

She had travelled to South America from Ibiza where she had worked as a dancer in a bar.

McCollum was freed last March and returned to Ireland last August.

Earlier this week pictures of her walking on a beach in Spain appeared in the media.

Now, using her social media account McCollum has appeared to hit back at her critics.

"For those who did not like the bikini pictures published heres 3 enjoy!! Embrace what you have," she wrote on her Instagram account alongside new holiday pictures.
