Inside Strictly star Kate Silverton's family home complete with a garden room and minimalist open-plan kitchen

The BBC newsreader, 48, shares her sleek London abode with her husband and former Royal Marine Mike Heron and their two children; daughter Clemency, seven, and son Wilbur, four.

Taking to Instagram, Kate, who is partnered with Aljaz Skorjanec on this year's Strictly, has showcased her taste for interiors in a number of posts.

The journalist has followed a minimalist theme in her home and painted her kitchen and dining room in a soft white, which complemented her white-stained wooden floors.

Continuing her muted colour theme, Kate decorated the space with grey pendant lighting, a Scandinavian-inspired six-seater dining table and four sleek black chairs.

The BBC star clearly has an eye for artwork and decorated the room with a kooky framed turtle print alongside her framed family photos.

The kitchen appears to be the heart of their home with a large white island in the midst of the space, big enough to entertain or in Kate's case film her TV interviews.

Her open plan room features floor to ceiling sliding doors which lead onto her garden and her children's playroom.

Kate continued her minimal theme into her living room which features contrasting textures of wood, a shaggy white rug, quirky art and a large TV to watch back her ballroom performances.

While the TV star's bathroom could be likened to a spa with it's warm marble tiling, waterfall shower and atmospheric lighting.

Recently, Strictly fans were left drooling over Kate as she transformed into Jessica Rabbit – despite taking a stumble during her routine.

The BBC newsreader ditched her usual suited and booted look for a sexy red gown and matching long red wig.

Dancing a foxtrot with her partner Aljaz, Kate opened the routine on her own as she entered in a caberet-style set and started to walk sexily down the steps.

However she stumbled slightly but managed to style it out, before continuing the routine and oozing sex appeal.

Viewers couldn't believe the transformation, taking to Twitter to shower Kate with compliments.

One wrote: "Kate as Jessica Rabbit, I think I'd turn for her #Strictly" while another added: "Wowsers! Kate Silverton!"

A third tweeted: "Can everyone alert the dads that Kate Silverton is dressed as Jessica Rabbit on #Strictly tonight."

A fourth shared: "Is Kate Silverton Jessica Rabbit? *swoons* #strictly."
