Richard Madeley and Judy Finnigan have given fans a glimpse inside their home for the first time on their new Channel 4 series, Keep Reading and Carry On. The couple have lived in their detached house in Hampstead Heath for 25 years, and admitted it is currently the tidiest it has ever been as they film in their living room during lockdown.

The living room is the setting for Richard and Judy's new show, with the pair sat side-by-side on their mustard sofa to share book reviews and recommendations with viewers. A bookcase in the corner is filled with their favourite reading material, and they also have a glass table lamp next to the wall, which is decorated with a gold patterned wallpaper.

The same wallpaper runs up the couple's staircase, where a selection of framed family photos of Richard and Judy with their children Chloe and Jack are on display. They appear to have opted to decorate with predominantly neutral tones throughout their house, with shades of cream and beige offset with metallic and wooden accents.

A shot from the outside of their house shows it's equally impressive, with steps leading up to the front door, which has a Juliet balcony overhead. Greenery grows up the front of the house and perfectly frames the windows on either side of the front door.

Richard and Judy made their return to Channel 4 on Monday, over a decade after their popular book club was last seen on screen. Each programme features a different book that the pair recommend. In a statement, Richard said: "It is no secret that Judy and I are avid readers and we are excited to return to Channel 4 to share what we love with viewers."

Judy added: "Books can transport you to incredible places from the comfort of your sofa and so there is no better time to share our top picks for lockdown reads and hear from viewers, celebrities and authors about the books that have helped them whilst staying at home."
