Tess Daly has shared a peek inside her amazing home gym after converting the garden shed at her house with husband Vernon Kay. The Strictly Come Dancing host revealed how exercise had helped her to boost her mood during the lockdown, and her inspirational message appeared to resonate with fans on Instagram.

Sharing a photo of herself in the gym on Monday morning, Tess 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."
