Zoe Ball has listed her beautiful East Sussex home for sale, just two years after she bought it. According to reports, the Strictly Come Dancing: It Takes Two host and her boyfriend Michael Reed have moved into a lavish new six-bedroom home with a swimming pool and tennis court in the same Sussex village where Piers Morgan lives.

It means her stunning 18th-century property, complete with a walled garden and colourful living room that featured on Celebrity Gogglebox, is now on the market for £1.25million – over £250,000 more than she originally paid for it.

Take a look through the gallery to see more of Zoe's former home. We imagine this will be snapped up quickly!

Zoe unveiled her gorgeous kitchen renovation in a series of photos back in July. The mum-of-two said it had taken "a lot of love" to perfect the space, which features rustic cream wooden cabinets and a quirky colour pop from her accessories and wallpaper.

One area of the room, which Zoe said is the "hub of our house", features a striking pink and green mural wallpaper, and has been converted into a cosy seating area with a velvet sofa and log burning fire.

Zoe's son Woody worked with her boyfriend Michael to do some incredible DIY during the coronavirus lockdown, including building a wooden cabin in their garden, which she insisted is "not a shed".

The Big Night In host shared a peek in her bedroom when she was treated to breakfast in bed on Mother's Day. The wall opposite Zoe's bed is lined with cream built-in wardrobes, with a television integrated in the middle. Zoe has a dusky pink duvet cover, and even her Le Creuset salt and pepper mills match – in shades of pink and grey.

In another photo, Zoe's pet cats both slept in one room, with one curled up on a blue armchair, and the other on a footstool. Two pale pink cushions and a personalised penguin print cushion sit on top of the chair, while two small metal tables are positioned on either side.

Zoe shared a peek inside her living room while settling down to watch a film earlier this year. The room has dark grey walls with a grey corner sofa and white media unit with her TV resting on top. White shutter blinds have been placed at the window, while a Woody Allen film poster and patterned blanket add a pop of colour.

The room has a soft cream carpet, and Zoe has added decorative touches with framed photos, candles, and a green glass vase. She made training for her Sport Relief challenge more fun by placing her exercise bike in front of the television.

Zoe's kitchen doesn't look like this anymore! The BBC Radio 2 presenter shared a glimpse at her kitchen before it was ripped out for renovations, showing the space had white fitted cabinets and duck egg blue tiles. The kitchen is open plan with her dining room area and leads through to the living room, making it ideal for entertaining.

Fans were green with envy when they saw her garden covered with purple wisteria in the spring. The walled garden was in full bloom the plant climbing up and along the brickwork and over the top of her garage. Further potted plants and trees are scattered around the garden while a bird house is mounted on the wall, creating a picture-perfect scene.

Zoe appears to spend a lot of time in her garden, and shared this photo as she enjoyed an al fresco breakfast in the summer. A rattan sofa and table are the ideal spot to relax outside, and is surrounded by a number of plants and flowers.
