WHEN it’s baking hot on holiday the last thing you want to be doing is awkwardly lying on the hard ground next to the pool – but could it be the key to racking up the likes?
Stars seem to love rocking the uncomfortable pose on Instagram, and as ridiculous as it is, it certainly makes them look incredible.
From Jade Thirlwall to Britney Spears, celebrities have been giving the hard-to-execute stance a go.
The Little Mix singer wowed in a cobalt blue bikini while cooling off by the pool in Thailand recently.
Vogue Williams used the look to soak up the sun – and show off her impressive figure – during a relaxing holiday.
Tweaking the stnace, Rita Ora submerged half her body while posing for the camera in Los Angeles.
Meanwhile, Zara McDermott enlisted the pose as she looked delighted to be served brunch during a trip to the Maldives.
Similarly, Kourtney Kardashian elegantly reclined in a metallic bikini in the heat.
Britney Spears included a leg pop as she gave the tricky stance a go in a yellow bikini.
Alessandra Ambrosio also performed another variation – adding a hip tilt to emphasise her curves.
Both Jess Wright – on the Turks and Caicos Islands recently – and Georgia Harrison opted for a more upright version of the pose.
As did Amber Gill, who incorporated it for a photo shoot at a spa break over new year.
And Amy Hart took in her surroundings with the stance in Dubai.

Although she looked dangerously close to toppling off the side, the singer set pulses racing in a sizzling red bikini during a break to Bali this week.
