Lorraine Kelly has treated fans to a rare glimpse of her gorgeous garden in a brand new Instagram post.
The popular TV presenter may have recently swapped her incredible £845,000 mansion in Dundee, Scotland, for a smaller home in Buckinghamshire, but that doesn't mean she's had to compromise on outdoor space.
Taking to social media, Lorraine gave fans a rare look at the garden of her new home, as she sat on some brand new patio furniture, purchased from Wayfair, a furniture store she is an ambassador for.
Alongside the photo, she wrote, 'Enjoying the garden. Thanks @wayfairuk ! #sunshine #happy #wayfairuk Wayfair.co.uk made it so easy and affordable to shop for my new home and find the right thing. #ad'
In the picture, fans were able to get a sneak peek of Lorraine's large patio, which she has adorned with stylish grey furniture and fairy lights, to ensure she gets as much use out of it as possible.
The patio also appears to be at the end of a lush green garden, complete with tropical plants and hedges.
Further back in the picture is a kitsch-looking house with wooden doors and windows. It's not clear if this is part of Lorraine's new home, or a smaller, garden outhouse.
Lorraine's 165,000 followers were suitably impressed by the rare look into her home. One fan wrote on the post, 'Stunning!!! Enjoy the sunshine ☀'
While another commented, 'Love that furniture xx'. A third follower also wrote, 'Lovely photo 👍 enjoy the sunshine and lovely glass of bubbly !! 😉'
This is one of only a few insights Lorraine has shared into her new home. The star recently relocated from Boughty Ferry in Scotland to Buckinghamshire.
Lorraine used to split her time between her Scottish home on the weekends, and a London flat she also owned, which she would live in during the week whilst presenting her morning television show.
Recently, the presenter shared another brief glance at her abode, revealing that her garden is actually located on the banks of a river.
Lorraine shared an adorable video of her new puppy Angus, running riot at home with a toy penguin. As Angus carried the toy into the garden, fans got a sneak peek at her garden, showing the flowing river through the railings behind her dog. What a lovely setting!
In the video, Lorraine also shared a look at the interior of her home. In what appears to be her dining room, Lorraine has opted for light grey, wooden furniture, to bring a beachy feel to her new house.
Discussing her move from her Dundee mansion down south, Lorraine has previously told Wayfair that she and husband Steve were keen to downsize. However, she also revealed that a spacious garden was still a priority.
She said, "My husband and I have recently moved to a much smaller house as there's only the two of us now.
"Besides making sure the house truly feels like home, my main priority is getting the garden in shape for the summer."
