Josie Gibson has been standing in for Holly Willoughby on This Morning this week, but when she's not on the show she's chilling out at her lovely home.
The former Big Brother star lives with her son Reggie who she shares with her ex-partner Terry.
The 36 year old presenter has a gorgeous home that she has been updating with a spot of DIY, giving some of the walls a lick of paint.
Josie posted a snap on Instagram at the end of April 2020, before she headed back outdoors to film content for the ITV daytime show, in full DIY mode holding up a paint brush covered in white paint and her hair tied back with a scarf.
She wrote: "I never want to see a bloody paint brush again…. Or a jet wash, or anything that involves doing anything to my house….I'm done."
It looked like the reality star had got stuck into giving her downstairs rooms a freshen up, as the selfie appeared to be in her living room and hallway.
Her living room usually houses a velvet purple sofa, which she often cosies up on with her son Reggie for a nap.
Back in May 2019, the mum of one confessed: "I have no routine with Reggie, he pretty much sorted his own routine out himself. This has become my favourite part of his routine… the daytime nap."
She added: "This is also the time where I am meant to get on top of worklife/homelife but never do. #procrastination
Elsewhere in her living room, there a gorgeous black fireplace with an old fashioned log burner in it, and beautiful wooden floors.
In a post from back in February 2019 it appears as though her living room was a shade of grey with gold patterned wallpaper above the fireplace, so Josie has certainly been busy transforming it to a bright white.
Over in the kitchen Josie has also stuck to a neutral shade of cream, with the cabinets all the same colour, offset with black marble counter tops.
Speaking exclusively to new! magazine last year, Josie explained that she and her ex, who usually share custody of Reggie, were faced with a huge dilemma over how to co-parent during the crisis.
“Because Terry’s got asthma, he’s got problems breathing at the best of times,” she says. “I was like, ‘Oh my God, if you get this, you’re one of the vulnerable ones.’
“We were having conversations where I was saying, ‘I don’t want to kill you.’ When you’re speaking like that with the father of your son, it sort of hit home.”

After isolating separately due to Terry’s condition, Josie asked him if he wanted to move back into her Bristol home.
After they both isolated separately for a month, they then met so that Reggie could see his dad, Josie added: "After that we had to see each other to hand over Reg and his stuff, and I didn’t want to keep taking Reg to the supermarket, so I said to Terry, ‘You may as well move in.’ So we started living together.
“Even though I find it hard to live with him, I’ve realised I can’t really live without him. I do really love him, but he’s just hard work. To see him play with Reg the way they do, it’s so gorgeous, it’s worth the hard work. It’s only taken a year and a half and a pandemic, but I’ve finally forgiven him!"

While in lockdown Josie, who would report for This Morning from her home, also kept her son entertained pretending their bathtub was a swimming pool.
Before the travel restrictions were lifted, the mum shared an adorable snap of Reggie wearing sunglasses and lounging next to an inflatable palm tree.
"As close as your getting to a holiday kid," she joked, giving a brief glimpse of the bathroom which boasts tiled marble flooring, a white framed mirror, and a set of weighing scales.
Her bedroom is kept nice and cosy as she shared a peek inside in a sponsored post promoting the company she got her bed from.
Cuddling up under the duvet with Reggie, Jose posted in the caption: "I would love my @arista.living bed a lot more if I got it to myself but I have to share it with this little monster who has no bed etiquette.
"However I still do get a really good night's sleep!! I created it myself on their website, It's also an ottoman bed so plenty of storage they have 50 [per cent] off use JOSIE 50 child not included."
Luckily for Josie during lockdown she was able to spend time in her garden with her son, sharing a sweet snap of him enjoying a splash pool.
She joked: "This all inclusive holiday Comes with your own pool, 24 hour reception, private chef and pool service. One of our residents here just enjoying the evening sun in his private chalet. Makes virgin holidays look like a randy mare. Welcome to Josie's choice."
And the TV personality also showed off her gorgeous style posing in the garden wearing a red dress, in front of a white wall on the grass.
