Louise Minchin has revealed a feature inside of her home that both Princess Beatrice and Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi and Zara and Mike Tindall keep at their respective properties: an indoor spin bike.

The BBC Breakfast star has shared several photos on the exercise equipment since the coronavirus pandemic began, suggesting that she invested in one following the closure of gyms in order to stay healthy.

Back in April, she posted a snap showing that she has set it up in a corner of her living room with an interactive screen provided by Zwift, a virtual training and cycling app, which has apparently helped her coordinate charity rides and competitions.

"This time yesterday I was just setting off on what turned out to be one of my favourite bike rides ever #TheBigBikeIn," she captioned it. "It was tough, there were moments I thought I wouldn't make it, but all your messages helped me through it. As did Wotsits, Snickers, sandwiches and cups of tea. I am so touched by how many of you took part and joined me. Thank you for that and for all of your donations too. I am staggered by how much we raised. Now I have my feet up and resting for at least a day!! Thank you!"

An additional photo showed that she has positioned her bike alongside an ironing board, which acts as a handy sideboard for food and drink.

Louise's home cycling set-up

Louise lives in Chester, Cheshire, with her husband David and their two daughters, Mia and Scarlett. The TV host moved to the area after BBC Breakfast relocated to a studio in Salford in 2012.

Now, the family are big fans of the area, with Louise telling Cheshire Life, "We're surrounded by countryside and people are completely different. The first day I arrived, someone knocked on my door and invited me to the pub. That was absolutely brilliant, so welcoming and it already feels like we have a support network here."
