Fans of the star were quick to post comments, with many being able to relate. "I think I need about 30 fans today… melting," wrote one follower, while another remarked: "I feel like I'm literally melting." A third post read: "Living the life Andrea. I love it."

It's hardly surprising Andrea wants to spend as much time as possible in her garden. Over the past few weeks, the 50-year-old has been working on improving the patio area, and earlier this month, she shared a photo of herself painting the decking with the caption, "Caught! The glamour of Sundays…" The space has light grey flooring and a white flower sleeper.

The patio leads to her porch, which Andrea has previously branded her "favourite place" in the home. In 2018, she shared a tour of the sheltered area when a fan asked to see it. Andrea wrote: "Here you go! This is for the lady who asked what my porch looks like as her husband has said she can have one too. I may have had some bubbles #porchlife #Friday #relaxing."
