Cat Deeley is back in the UK after 14 years living in LA and she has moved into a wonderful family home.
The former children's presenter has carved out a career in the States hosting So You Think You Can Dance, but decided it was time to bring her two sons Milo, four and James, two, she shares with husband Patrick Kielty, back to London.
Explaining that the plan was put in place in January this year on BBC The One Show, Cat added that she and Patrick rented a home so they could move and be nearer their families.

Talking about uprooting her family just before the coronavirus pandemic started, Cat shared: "It was so weird because we had actually set everything up so Milo started a new school in January.
"We’d rented a place and then I flew back to LA because I was shooting a new show for Disney."
But it was during this time the pandemic started causing chaos in the UK, while Cat was on the other side of the pond: "Then I went back and it just started to get worse and worse and worse here in the UK. I was supposed to be gone for two weeks and I could see it getting worse, and I thought “oh no I’m going to have to bail on this to come back…"

She continued telling presenter Alex Jones and co-host Ronan Keating: "In the end the US caught up and Disney was like “Nope we can’t do this, we can’t fly families in we can’t do any of that…”
"Then the [So You Think You Can Dance] show got cancelled. We were in production and then it just got cancelled because there was no way of doing it, auditioning dancers and putting them together without causing chaos."
Cat was lucky that she was able to fly back before any travel restrictions were put in place and after lockdown rules eased she said that both her and Patrick's parents have loved having their grandchildren so close by.
"Grandparents are helping out big time, they are loving it it’s brilliant. The kids love them and the fact they get treats and Jelly Babies all the time…
"They want to hang out together, if you only have that window of time for such a small… blink and it’s gone. I was like I don’t want to do that, so I’m going to come back and be based and fly the other way," she explained.
Now Cat and Patrick have set up home in London, the television presenters have been giving glimpses into their cosy abode that they share with their two children.
Thankfully the UK has been enjoying wonderful bouts of sunshine so it hasn't been too dissimilar to the sunny LA Cat is used to, with the family making good use of the spacious back garden which also features a trampoline.
In a sweet clip Cat and her sons are seen running around on the grass inbetween the trees as they pretend to be rocket jets.
And in another outdoor peek of their eldest son learning to ride a bike we get to see the back of the property, which has a small conservatory attached to it to capture the rays.

There's also plenty of toys for the children to play with including a goal post, a wooden boat to pretend to be at sea.
Cat, who has just released her first children's book called The Joy In You, also shared a glimpse inside the farmhouse style kitchen as she nipped down to the fridge.
"So you said we were out of milk…" she spoke addressing her husband Patrick as she opened the fridge door to discover a bottle of Champagne.
Over on Patrick's Instagram account he admitted the pair had been celebrating with some bubbles after Cat's book launch, alongside a snap of his wife of eight years smiling on their comfy looking cream couch surrounded by green cushions.
The green theme seems to run through to the kitchen which has a green tiled splash back above the oven as well as a wooden and white table in the centre for family meals.
Elsewhere in the couple's home, there appears to be a book shelf crammed full of their son's books and animal figurines as well as a spot for Cat's own work.
