Former Strictly Come Dancing judge Dame Arlene Phillips has given a sneak peek inside the home she shares with partner Angus Ion.
The 78 year old choreographer, who will be the oldest contestant to star on I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here, has shared a glimpse inside the gorgeous North London home where she lives with her designer carpenter partner Angus, 60, who she met in 1985.
Arlene has revealed that she would like to 'take on the mum role' on the hit ITV show which is set in Gwrych Castle, Wales, as she is set to star alongside TV presenter Richard Madeley and The Saturdays star Frankie Bridge.
The former BBC Strictly judge, who is mum to daughters Alana Phillips, 42, and 30 year old Abi Phillips, is also a very proud grandmother to Alana's children Lila Primrose and Emme Bow and has given a peek inside her home while looking after the little ones.
We can see that Arlene has a neutral colour scheme with pops of pink as she cradled granddaughter Emme in a snap on her huge cream corner sofa which has been decked with cushions.
Adding to the relaxing setting, Arlene has white voile at her huge windows to add a soft finish to the space and to complement the shades of pink and cream.
Meanwhile Arlene has shown that she is a huge fan of minimalistic design after she posed three gorgeous bouquets of green foliage on a huge glass table as a gift from her daughter Abi.
The walls have been painted white and four black and white images can been seen on the wall to add texture and detail to the space.
Captioning the snap, Arlene penned: "Happy Valentine’s Day to you all. I woke up to this beautiful arrangement from my darling daughter @abigailphillips21 who always wows me with her floristry skills."
The dancing star also posted a sweet snap of her partner Angus with their adorable pup Freddie as he relaxed on their charcoal grey sofa.
Arlene has continued to show her appreciation for gorgeous floral displays as she posed in her hallway donning a chic black dress.
We can see that Arlene has a huge mirrored glass table with various vases filled with pink foxgloves with the hallway leading onto a plush lounge area featuring a grey accent chair.
Meanwhile Arlene has described how Strictly Come Dancing judge Craig Revel Horwood, who recently tested positive for Covid, will be left gobsmacked after he finds out she is taking part in the show.
Arlene said: “Craig will say ‘Darling, are you mad?!’
“I still can’t believe I am doing it either but I love and admire everybody who has done the show, I admire their bravery and I have spoken to so many people who have done it.
"Everyone has loved the experience and told me how it has added something new to their lives and that is why I have said yes this year after being approached before."
