Posing shirtless, the reality star revealed he had been gifted the garment by a mermaid tale company and wanted to try it out in his pool.

He then shared snippets of himself doing lengths up and down the pool, showcasing his new gift to his 821,000 Instagram followers.

After trying out the new tail, Roddy told MailOnline that it made it 'easier to swim' and 'burned more calories' to use the swimming accessory.

Roddy is currently soaking up the sun in the Spanish resort and enjoyed a raucous night out with his pal Danni Levi during the trip.

He was seen sharing a riotous joke with pal Danni, who planted a kiss on his lips at one point. 

Roddy recently explained that he is toning down his look, known for his elaborate, brightly-coloured ensembles.

Hoping to shake his 'Human Ken Doll' image for a more conservative look, the star - who this time last year was taking part on Celebrity Big Brother - admits he is just as happy in demure outfits than flashy ones.

Regardless of this, the TV personality always ensures he is looking smart and chic.

Roddy will soon travel to Thailand for his latest venture, where he will appear on Thai television.
