The popular presenter and her husband, Matthew Robertson, moved into the stunning homestead in 2009.

She’s one of the nation’s favourite faces thanks to her decades on TV as she fronted some of the most popular shows around, including Big Brother and Long Lost Family.

And it seems that Davina McCall’s hard-earned cash has allowed the presenter and her family to live quite the good life out in the Sussex countryside.

Yes, she has a big house, a very big house in the country.

Moving out into the country in 2009 with second husband Matthew Robertson and their three children, the 49-year-old presenter has given a very rare glimpse into her home after applying for planning permission to alter aspects of the eight-bedroom Georgian mansion.

The planning application gives a unique insight into the TV star’s life at home with her family, as well as highlighting some changes she wants to make to both the interior and exterior of the £3.2 million property, presumably to modernise it for the comfort of her family.

Pictures of the interior showcase the star’s taste in furnishings, as well as her appreciation for art, with the family appearing to own more than a few paintings.

Though it seems that she and her husband are looking to upgrade and renew some parts of the property.

One area in particular are the glasshouses, which look to have seen better days, thanks to scrawling paint jobs over the walls and a collection of paintings and mirrors hanging on the white stone walls.

Seeking permission to replace a semi-derelict loggia addition from the 1930s with a new family room, and a re-purposing and refurbishing a former “gramophone room” to serve as a new kitchen, it would seem that Davina and Matthew are looking to make life in the main house a little easier for themselves.

Their application also includes the restoration of 19th century glasshouses, which reside in the sprawling grounds of the property.

These works would add to the grandeur of the house, which already boasts some high-flying credentials, including two swimming pools, a paddock and tennis courts.

The main house isn’t short of a few impressive features or two either, as it’s comprised of eight separate bedrooms, five bathrooms, five reception rooms, and a huge conservatory.

Davina and the family look to have made the “gramophone room” into a snug, placing comfy sofas and a wood-burning stove in the room, and showing off her taste in the finer things, the former BB star has a Pop Art painting of former U.S president Barack Obama.

There is a dramatic skylight to help light the room, and double doors lead out to the grounds.

Other shots of the interior give a glimpse as to just how expansive the house’s rooms are, with one showing a grand sitting room.

The exterior features of the house show an almost Downton Abbey-esque view, with perfectly manicured lawns and a period water-feature capturing the eye.

The loggia itself is riled and its roof is supported by steel columns, while the true scope of the glasshouses can be seen at the fear of the property.

The property is laid out in the traditions of an early 19th century classical Villa, with interconnecting rooms.

Davina and her home previously hit headlines after she complained her enjoyment of the rural home was being disturbed by locals urinating in the surrounding area.

Before moving into her Sussex property, Davina previously divided her time between a £1 million home in Woldingham, Surrey, and a £1.5 million villa in St. Tropez, France.
