Louise Minchin will be able to make the most of her morning lie ins in her stunning Chester-based home after she announced she has decided to step away from BBC Breakfast this year.

The TV presenter, 52, is set to delete her early morning alarm after more than 20 years on the BBC Breakfast sofa and settle down in the heart of the British countryside with her furry friends and family.

The journalist made the move from London to live with her husband David and her two daughters Mia and Scarlett in Cheshire when the BBC Breakfast team made the journey up north to a studio in Salford in 2012.

Speaking of her move to Cheshire Live, Louise said: “Cheshire could not be more different for us. We’re surrounded by countryside and people are completely different. We have be welcomed with open arms by the locals.”

The mum-of-two gave fans a rare glimpse inside her family home in Cheshire back in 2017 after she invited a photographer into her humble abode.

A snap taken from her grand living room features large fireplace in the centre of the room complete with traditional carvings along the mantel piece.

The room is complete with natural wood floors and beautiful French windows which open out onto her large garden for her pooches to run around in.

Louise donned a stunning red dress for the special occasion as she posed by the sofa at the heart of the room which showed off the incredibly high ceilings in her Victorian style home.

But in more recent images, the loving mother has since redecorated the gorgeous space with a more modern influence.

The journalist has ditched the pale-yellow walls and opted for a lovely shade of pale grey paired with a soft wool carpet underfoot to warm up the house.

In keeping with the mid-century modern style revamp, she has an antique side cabinet with two matching figures of deer complemented with two silver side lamps and a bouquet of lilies.

She also gave a sneak peek into her well-groomed garden as she posed with her dog Waffle after a run through the Cheshire countryside.

Gardening hasn’t always been a passion of Louise’s but since the global pandemic took effect in March 2020, the broadcaster has invested her extra time into gardening and has produced a healthy crop of fruit and veg.

Louise announced her departure from the BBC show on Tuesday in an emotional statement.

She told viewers: “I have absolutely loved being part of the 6 million strong BBC Breakfast family but after nearly two decades presenting the programme, I have decided it is time I stopped setting my alarm for 3:40 in the morning."
