As well as several kinds of cheese, the indulgent picnic included grapes, crackers, cold meats and what appears to be a mini quiche. Michelle has previously been open about her love of cheese, stating she sprinkles it on top of her scrambled eggs for breakfast and swaps out her healthy weekday snacks in favour of a cheeseboard at the weekends - when it looks this good, who can blame her?

The main course was followed up with a cake stand laden with sweet treats including fluffy bite-sized pieces of cake and chocolate-dipped strawberries. Delicious! Michelle's latest culinary creation is especially impressive considering she recently suffered an embarrassing baking disaster during the coronavirus lockdown

The Celebrity Great British Bake Off star posted a video of herself attempting to make cupcakes, which ended up rising too much in the oven until each individual cake spilt over into the surrounding cases to create one huge cake. The 33-year-old was quick to make light of the situation, joking: "My cupcakes turned out well!!! I'll stick to licking the bowl!"

The former Coronation Street star took to Instagram to share a photo of herself wearing a black top from her own Very collection as she cuddled her brother's new puppy. Michelle captioned the gorgeous photo: "Welcome to the family pretty girl. P.S She’s my brother's puppy not mine #nelly #minidachshund."
