Normal People star Daisy Edgar-Jones gave fans a glimpse of her chic London home as she celebrated her 22nd birthday on Sunday. In a snap on Instagram Stories, the actress shares a special hamper from her parents, saying: "Thank you everyone for my lovely birthday messages, and thank you mum and dad for organising this amazing @Jimmyspopup Sunday roast."

In the background, coloured 'Happy Birthday' bunting stands out against the modern Herringbone tiles and white kitchen cabinets. Daisy, wearing a black sundress (similar to one her character Marianne sported in Normal People), stands next to the wicker basket full of goodies from Jimmy Garcia's pop up restaurant, which people in London can order everything from birthday cakes and barbecue food boxes to its famous Sunday roast. A bundle of metallic balloons can also be seen in the Instagram photo as Daisy celebrated her special day with her flatmates.
