A STUNNING brunette has become an internet sensation after bravely posting a bikini snap on Facebook that exposes her colostomy bags.

The photo - which shows the first time Bethany Townsend, 23, dared to bare after being fitted with two colostomy bags - has now been viewed by an incredible nine million people.
