This isn't the first time she has shared a photo of herself mid-exercise, but it's the first in a while – hardly surprising considering she's been busy hosting Strictly, raising two children, and being a wife to husband Vernon Kay.

She did, however, share a photo of herself after a gym session last week as she touted the benefits of movement, no matter how busy you are.

"Kicked off the day post school run, with a gym session," she wrote. "Don't always feel like it but always leaves me feeling great afterwards once the endorphins have kicked in! Then a moment in the sun for a few minutes, soaking up that immune-boosting vitamin D and now on with the day!"

In lockdown last year, she and Vernon also converted their shed into a home gym, as they explained how it keeps them motivated and helped boost their mood.

She posted an image of herself in the space and wrote: "Good morning everyone. Really wanted to motivate myself this morning so got up early ahead of the kids' home schooling/ lunches etc to do a Zoom workout in the gym (shed) with my always super motivating mate @supersamfitness."

She continued: "I won't pretend it was easy but definitely felt lifted after, getting those endorphins going helps me feel more positive and capable of tackling the day ahead. Self care and compassion for ourselves (and of course for others) feels more important than ever right now. I hope you have a good day & sending love as ever."
