Alongside a series of snaps from a dinghy, the TV star wrote: "Hit the high seas for a quick ride round Ballycastle. Lush to see the coastal route I normally run along too.#ayeayecaptain."

Over the past few days, Steph has made trips to Portstewart, Rathlin Island and Arncliffe in West Yorkshire. She has been on running trails, camping grounds and fairgrounds – a summer well spent while her popular daytime TV show, Steph's Packed Lunch, is off our screens until the autumn.

Steph is a doting mum to her little girl, who she welcomed in November 2019, but has always kept her daughter's name and photo out of the media.

The former BBC Breakfast star also protects her partner's privacy, although it is believed that she works in television production. During an appearance on Giovanna Fletcher's podcast Happy Mum, Happy Baby, the TV presenter revealed that she and her partner were friends for "a long long time" before becoming romantically involved.

"Me and my partner got together, and we had been friends for a long time before we got together and so she knew all about this, that I was thinking about what to do," Steph said.

"And then we got together and she was like, 'Why don't we just go for it?' And we hadn't even been together for that long and I was like, 'Do you reckon?' And she was like, 'Yeah, yeah. What's stopping us?' And so then we decided we would have a baby."
