Rochelle Humes and her husband Marvin have sold their family home just three years after purchasing the property in 2020.

They spent years redecorating the house – which they share with their three children Alaia-Mai, Valentina and Blake – but are now leaving it behind to live in a rental property for 18 months while they build an entirely new home.

Announcing the surprise news on her Instagram Stories, Rochelle explained: "I'm moving in every single sense of the word. First of all, with the house, we found ourselves in a position where we got an offer on our house. Anyway, crazy. It happened out of the blue.

"But we have found a plot that is in a spot that we have always loved…so we're going to build a house. I've never built a house before," she said excitedly to the camera.

"We are now in a rental for 18 months to two years… whilst we build hopefully the forever home," the This Morning star added, explaining that she is very excited about the new chapter and has already enlisted the help of the Style Sisters to help her make her rental house a home.

"Today we brought over our bits, can you see? Kate and Bowie made the move," she said, pointing to a giant black and white framed picture resting against one wall in the background. "Just bits that are going to make it feel like home, and then by the weekend they can kiss goodbye to me and hope not to see me again until we go again to the new place!"

The video offered Rochelle's fans a glimpse inside her new property. She appeared to be standing in the kitchen, which had floor-to-ceiling windows offering lots of natural light. A white island unit next to Rochelle had grey worktops, while a black wicker table could be seen next to her photo of David Bowie.

Candlesticks had also already been displayed on a white unit in another section of the open-plan room.

Although many people would find a house move stressful, especially since it comes at the same time as she's moving office, Rochelle couldn't contain her joy. Grinning at the camera, she said: "We love moving, it's become sort of our favourite pastime," before adding: "We're in the same sort of area so we're not far. The kids will stay in the same school so that's good."

Rochelle and Marvin's current home, which featured on Rochelle Humes: Interior Designer in the Making, features a cream kitchen with dark marble worktops, a home gym and a dream playroom for their three children.

Their decision to move comes after they said they were ready to "enjoy the home in peace for a bit" after having decorators round all the time.

Speaking to House Beautiful, Rochelle explained: "There won't be any work at home for a bit. We just finished our entertaining space downstairs, but now we just need to enjoy living in it. Everything always takes much longer than it's supposed to, so you always need to manage expectations."
