"The crew have gone, the dining room is almost back to normal," she captioned the post on Instagram. "If the show wasn't starting today at 5pm on Channel 4, I might think I imagined the whole thing."

The after photo showed a very creative and characterful dining room, as seen on last night's show, featuring several keepsakes and memorabilia from around her home (pen pots, tea towels, bunting, ornaments, house plants and a collection of plates and mugs included), while the before photo revealed that the room is usually very bare. It features cream walls with a coordinating cream dresser in one corner, a large traditional log fireplace, and a dining table with a burgundy tablecloth in the middle. There's also a silver chandelier for lighting and a large mirror hanging above the fireplace.

Kirstie previously shared a photo of her dining-room-turned-set

Kirstie previously shared a look at the finished set before the first episode aired, writing: "So here we go, a set created in the dining room with stuff from around the house! I know I encourage people to chuck stuff out and clearly do not practice what I preach but I live with the son of @lacquerchest so it's not easy. We're going to get crafty, and there's no-one to cover up my mistakes, they're two metres away and smirking!"

Kirstie's show will air every day this week at 5pm on Channel 4 with ideas for crafts and projects to help keep the whole family entertained during lockdown, from redesigning cushions to a homemade body scrub.
