Behind Alex, fans could see her abundant bookshelves, lined with an array of colourful reads. In front of the in-built shelving stands a large palm plant and to the side the footballer has propped up a guitar.

The room appears to be painted in a light blue shade and there are white shutters covering the window. Alex's shelving unit has been kept cream, allowing the books to provide a splash of colour.

The star captioned her video: "IT'S FINALLY OUT THERE!!! New @bbcsport football focus host!! Omg!! I am so buzzing, excited and grateful. I am humbled to be stepping into such an iconic chair and carry on from the amazing presenters before me.

We already know that Alex is a big fan of plants as in her former London home she also had a large palm plant.

The footballer loves greenery in her home

One photograph, shot in her living room, offered up a look at her leather sofa, colourful accessories and oversized plant. Alex was pictured cuddling up to her dog Ella, who sadly passed away in summer 2018.

The Daily Mail has reported that Alex's new home is worth £1.5million and they captured images of the star moving her belongings into the property back in March. The collection of items being relocated included Alex's Peloton bike which she uses to keep fit at home.
