Alongside her various modeling gigs, Jessica has spent the last few months making the most of the travel industry’s return from lockdown.
She explained: “My gender change took place while we were in lockdown during the pandemic so this is my first real summer as a woman.
‘I had a great time! I was in Thailand for two months, now I’m in Turkey and then I’m going to Bali.

It comes after Jessica and her new love interest Jamie Bugden split after enjoying a whirlwind romance in Thailand.
A source told M last month: “Jessica was living a love story in Phuket but that’s over now. They are two very different people who live very far from each other and have different mottos in life.
“Maybe they’ll see each other again one day, but they’re no longer in a relationship.”
The insider added, “Jessica is single and very much on the hunt for Mr. Right. She still believes in love, romance and monogamy and is willing to put her time, love and effort into a relationship.
Before their split, a source told M of Jessica’s romance with Jamie: “They get along really well and are making the most of their journey. It is the first time she has posted a man on her social media.
“Jessica is heartbroken that it won’t be a long term relationship as he is a Brit living in Thailand and she splits her time between London and Brazil. Have fun for now’.
