The presenter shared a video of her husband Richie Myler on the floor of the kitchen trying to locate to rouge animal who had entered their gorgeous house.

While shrews carry venom it is unharmful to humans, meaning Helen, Richie and their sons Ernie and Louis would be safe with the critter roaming around the house. Stray wildlife could be a frequent occurrence for the family given they live in such a rural area of Yorkshire.

The presenter has a stunning home

Helen told the magazine the vision behind the cooking area: “When we lived in France, we had a massive island in the kitchen, and all our friends would come over with loads of plates of food and just dip in and out. That’s what we wanted to recreate here.”

The family have large patio doors which look out upon their vast garden with lots of greenery.

She accompanied the photograph with a caption about her reasoning behind the decision: “Husband thinks I am spoiling them. He’s probably right… I just wanted something fun for them, life’s too short right!”.
