The room used to be Rebecca's walk-in wardrobe and she confessed that it's taken months of work to turn it into a baby-friendly haven. It now has matching white furniture, a comfy chair with cuddly toys and a bright blue patchwork rug.

The star shared pictures of the room before and after its makeover as well as a montage of images from during the process – with partner Andy working hard to put the cot together under the watchful eye of Rebecca's daughter Summer.

Rebecca explained that she didn't need to buy everything new for the nursery: "Luckily, I saved most things I had from when Summer was a baby... the cot, chair, baby change table etc.

"We have got a new wardrobe from @mamasandpapas which is such a perfect size and we love it! We are also sooo grateful to family and friends for passing on secondhand things and some lovely new gifts too. Thank you so much."

Rebecca has also transformed the kitchen at her family home 

Before the work, Rebecca's family kitchen was very narrow with a black breakfast table protruding out of a wall, leaving little space to move around.

The couple are expecting their first child together very soon

Now, they have an open-plan space with white worktops and she has added a pop of colour with an island featuring blue cupboards and a white top and a matching blue shelf on one wall.
