Vernon Kay has shared a peek inside his amazing home gym after converting the garden shed at his house with wife Tess Daly.

The TV star has everything he could possibly need for a challenging workout including a treadmill, spin bike and weights rack.

The makeshift gym has white wooden walls and black mats on the floor, while a selection of football shirts – likely from Vernon's beloved Bolton Wanderers – are hung in frames on the walls.

Fans were certainly impressed with the set-up, with one commenting: "Great space to work out." Another added: "Cool set-up." It's not just Vernon who puts the impressive gym to good use though.

Back in June, Tess revealed how exercise had helped her to boost her mood during the lockdown, posting an inspirational message on Instagram.

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."

Tess and Vernon live in Buckinghamshire with their two daughters, Phoebe and Amber, and shared regular insights into their home life during the coronavirus lockdown.

As well as keeping fit and homeschooling her children, Tess also enjoyed cooking for her family, and even started growing her own fruit and vegetables in the garden, an "experimental" project she revealed had started to pay off with her first strawberries and raspberries.
