Charlotte Hawkins shared a photo to Instagram on Wednesday afternoon that was special for two reasons. Not only did the Good Morning Britain co-host look absolutely gorgeous, but so did her garden! The presenter shared a snapshot of herself dressed in a long, lace-effect red dress with matching shoes and hat, in honour of the first-ever virtual Ascot.

She captioned the picture: "Ascot-ready at home! Come & join @markheyesstylist & I in just a moment, we’ll be live from 1 pm on Instagram talking about Ascot fashion! @ascotracecourse #styledwiththanks @clairemischevani @laylaleighmillinery @nickymalonepr #horseracing @racingfashion #racingstyle #racing #millinery #headband."

In the background, a bed of beautiful plants and an evergreen tree could be spotted.

"Being able to get out and keep busy in the garden over the last few weeks is the thing that's kept me sane, it's good for the soul." She added: "It would've been Chelsea Flower Show press preview day today, which is always such a highlight. My garden might not win any medals, but I love it! #rhschelsea #MyChelseaGarden @the_rhs."
