Catherine Zeta-Jones recently posted a throwback video to her Instagram, showing her in a red bikini and frolicking through the ocean waters in the 1990s series The Darling Buds of May. “Oh those lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer. ‘The Darling Buds of May’ an innocent, simple life,” she captions the post.
In the show, Zeta-Jones played the role of Mariette, the eldest daughter of Ma and Pop Larkin. The show first aired in 1991 and ran for 3 seasons. Set in the rural 1950s, the show is an adaptation of the 1958 novel of the same name.

One fan shares a personal-life experience that the clip reminded them of. “This little clip has brought back fond memories of my family holidays in Cornwall & Devon – thanks for sharing!”
What the family has been up to at home
Zeta-Jones has been self-quarantining at home during the coronavirus lockdown with husband Michael and their children Carys and Dylan. She shares to her Instagram followers earlier this week that she has had a tough time dealing with the quarantining and isolation. “Overwhelmed is the calmest I get,” she shares. The family also recently just celebrated the 17th birthday of Carys and mom Zeta-Jones made sure to make a loving post in dedication to her daughter.
“What joy these years have brought me. You never cease to amaze me and my love for you is endless,” she writes. Check out the bikini-clad throwback video of Zeta-Jones below!
