The L-shaped kitchen space also boasts a swanky white island and floor to ceiling metallic slate tower units, all of which Kieron has called a “dream.”

Describing the newly designed space, the Hollyoaks star said: “I’ve always wanted a kitchen island,” adding: “For us, especially with having the children now, storage, storage, storage is the main thing!”

And detailing the transformation, Kieron went on to add: “In our old kitchen there wasn’t much space. With having kids, you want to bake and get creative, so that’s what we can use the island for now!

“We’ve still got eyes on the kids if we’re eating breakfast at the island and they’re playing in the room.”

Other stunning features in the glossy new space include profile lighting which enhances the easy-to-clean luxury laminate worktops, which come in industrial inspired washed concrete and titanium shades.

And it turns out the pair were inspired by TV presenter Rylan Clark-Neal’s kitchen, as they explained: “We watched Gogglebox and saw Rylan’s kitchen and thought 'oh that’s really fancy and really nice' and we found out it was a Wren kitchen.
