Cooking with the stars host Emma Willis and her husband Matt live in a £1.7million home in Hertfordshire along with their three children – Isabelle, Ace and Trixie-Grace. The Big Brother presenter has designed many of the interiors herself and they are seriously beautiful, but the property isn't a show-home - instead, it's a world of fun!

Emma and Matt’s kitchen is so big, it can even double up as a space for The One Show host to workout. The room has glossy floor tiles and plain white walls, with a separate seating area and television, plus glass doors that lead directly out into the garden.

The kitchen is a space for all the family 

When Matt and Emma's daughter celebrated her birthday, a photo shared by the TV presenter showed inside a corner of their kitchen and family room, with a silver storage trunk on the floor, a TV mounted on the wall, and array of children's toys.

"When you come home from work and you're greeted by this," Emma wrote alongside this photo, which showed a "We love Mummy" banner hanging up in the hallway. Their hall has an open staircase with a leopard print runner on the stairs, along with a wooden gate at the bottom to keep their youngest daughter Trixie Grace safe.

Matt and Emma have given a nod to their son Ace with this piece of wall art – a large framed Ace of Spades playing card. This hallway has a neutral colour scheme with wooden flooring and dark painted doors, which contrast with the white gloss skirting boards and frames.

Emma Willis' dining room

The family have a large dining table 

Matt and Emma's homeschooling setup was very relatable, with the family gathering around their dining table for lessons during the lockdown. The long table is surrounded by fuchsia pink cushioned chairs with a pendant light overhead, and appears to lead through to the living room.

"I don't know what I love more. The chocolate or my new work bench," Emma captioned this photo, showing her impressive chocolate haul displayed on top of a traditional work bench in her dining room at Easter. The industrial-style bench featured black metal doors with a latch fastening, along with a vice handle at the end, and received plenty of comments from fans.

As well as showing a touching moment between Matt and his son Ace, this photo – shared in celebration of his 7th birthday – gave a look inside their lounge, which has wooden flooring and a grey patterned rug placed between the two sofas. The couple also have a wooden coffee table, while a lantern and grey cushions add the decorative touches.

The piano could be located in the lounge 

The couple have a cream piano in their home – the ideal spot for Matt to compose songs, or for their children to learn to play. The Busted singer's BRIT Awards take pride of place on top of the instrument, alongside a J by Jasper Conran photo frame from Debenhams, which as yet doesn't have a photo in.

The star doesn't shy away from cleaning 

Emma gave fans an inadvertent look inside her bathroom as she cleaned during the lockdown wearing a dress from her Next collection. "Never let a great dress go down the pan!! So this would have been getting packed right up in my summer suitcase but instead…" she captioned the photo, which showed her white bathroom, with a colourful striped bathmat on the stone flooring and a black-and-white portrait on the wall.
