On Monday, Carol shared a picture of the beautiful beach near where she was staying, and captioned the snap: "Good morning gorgeous peeps from Wales. Finally after the lockdown has been lifted slightly, I could come home. I grew up in North Wales and to see the sea and the mountains and the cows and sheep and green green grass (cue @realsirtomjones)…it fills my heart to bursting point."

Later on in the day, the star shared an image of the insane view from her house, as she enjoyed a cup of tea in the sun. Her balcony featured modern glass panelling around the edge, with some chic grey furniture, and the bright blue sea was in full view.

On her stories, Carol could be seen giving the terrace a good clean. Wearing an all-black outfit for the job at hand, the TV star got stuck in hosing down the glass windows and even put together a stunning wicker sofa for people to sit on outside.

She then started to fantasise about her plans, saying: "I'll look up at the stars and get a little campfire going," and explained that she was going to speak to the owner of Van Life Builds, Wayne to discuss her options.
