TV presenter AJ Odudu is competing on Strictly Come Dancing with her professional partner Kai Widdrington, and outside of the studio she returns to her stunning home.
The star has recently renovated her South East London home and has definitely put her stamp on it.
She took a year to find her perfect home, a three-bedroom Victorian period conversion which she has transformed into a modern home with lots of character.
The TV presenter has been documenting her house transformation on her own Instagram account, @homewithaj, dedicated fully to interior design.
AJ regularly posts updates to her Instagram page where she shows each individual room and where she bought her furniture.
Here is a run-down on all the details of AJ's renovation.
AJ has made her living room the centrepiece of the house, featuring a bright orange sofa from John Lewis along with a cobalt blue one.
She's also placed a bar cart full of drinks to the side of the room with a feature photo wall including special family black and white snaps arranged in a geometric design.
The star has brought the outside inside as there are green plants dotted around the room to bring a bit of countryside to London.
There is a wooden floor which is partly covered by an eccentric pink and red patterned rug.
AJ posted a photo to Instagram of her bright living room which she says she loves.
She wrote: "What I do have is a shed load of natural light, thriving plants and all of my favourite colours in one corner of my living room and I love it!"
AJ has completely transformed her kitchen into a bright white room which attracts a lot of light.
She's carried on the wooden floor throughout the house with white cabinets and integrated appliances.
The star has a gas style hob with an oven directly underneath with a microwave above.
AJ recently posted a photo of her toaster and kettle which have a nude spotty design which she bought from Poodle & Blonde.
She wrote: "Never thought I could feel this way about a kettle (& a toaster). #ImInLOVE"
AJ dedicated an entire Instagram post purely to her storage cupboard where she has individual boxes to store all her bits and bobs which she called her 'Monica cupboard' – referencing the Friends character.
AJ said: "I don't know whether to be proud or embarrassed by the fact that I spent my entire Saturday night tidying up my "Monica cupboard" but I simply can't deny the fact that matching storage boxes are satisfying to look at!"
White and airy seems to be the overall theme of the house with bursts of colour which continues in the bedroom.
AJ has gone for a botanical theme in her bedroom as she's placed a lot of plants around her bed.
She has an oval style mirror above her bed which she bought from Next with minimal furniture due to the fact she has her own walk-in wardrobe and dressing room instead.
The star has a grey fabric bed frame which she got from Made.com to tie in with the minimal theme.
Dressing room and walk-in wardrobe
AJ's dressing room is definitely one of the most impressive rooms in the house with her own dedicated shoe-drobe.
To the side of the room is where she stores all her colourful clothes with a sliding door which AJ described as a 'space saver'.
In the middle of the room, there is a baby pink sofa with a bright carpet with a colourful geometric design.
AJ has a full cupboard completely dedicated to her love of shoes.
She put multiple shelves in an empty cupboard on her landing where she has stored her heels to her boots.
The star told Harpers Bazaar: "Why should clothes get all the fun? Shoes deserve a home too.
"This was just an empty cupboard on my landing space, but I asked my builder to make a load of shelves and my electrician to install a sensor light and voila, my shoedrobe was born! I love it… and I love shoes."
AJ's garden doesn't look like it's set in South East London at all, as she had it transformed by J Sutton Landscapes.
When she first moved into her home in 2019, she used her garden to throw her dad an 80th birthday party which also served as a housewarming get together.
She has her own dedicated seating area in the outside space featuring bright blue chairs which she purchased from Wayfair.
AJ even has her own shed-style garden office where she can work from where she has a desk and a stylish swinging chair.
