Through a doorway and sitting at a dressing table, Steph's co-star and two-time Strictly champion Oti Mabuse could be seen, smiling and holding her arms in the air. Steph captioned the picture: "My girl is back! Woohoo. #missedthisface @OtiMabuse."

Another added: "That's a lot of awesome in one photo," while a third agreed: "I’m buzzing for this!!"

Steph was clearly excited to see her co-star again

One fan sweetly wrote: "What makes Packed Lunch different from all the rest, and I love them for it, is that you don't just have guests on for an interview, you actually involve them in the show."

Steph initially launched the programme as The Steph Show in the heart of lockdown, filming from the Yorkshire home she shares with her partner and young daughter.

After moving to a studio in Leeds, the show was renamed and became a favourite daily watch for many.

Down-to-earth Steph hasn't let it go to her head, though – she still enjoys the simple pleasures, as she revealed in a recent behind-the-scenes glimpse of a weekend with her family last month.

The former BBC presenter shared a photo taken from a Saturday night with her partner.

It showed some takeaway food peeking out of a cardboard bag on the table with the television on in the background.

Steph captioned the picture: "Perfect Saturday night… "Baby asleep. Drinking wine. Eating takeaway. Watching Motherland."
