She wrote alongside a video of the boys’ bedroom: “My head hurts…where would you put two boys in here…Bunk Beds…A Den…A Swing…”

In a second clip on her story, Helen gave viewers a tour of the vast space.

She pointed at a corner of the room and explained: “That used to be a window into the loft, but we took the ceiling out and blocked that up.”

Helen later revealed she wanted to build a “slide” going from her sons’ bedroom “into the living room”

“I wanted a slide from there into the living room, but I was told that’s ridiculous,” she said.

“So I now want something fun instead of a slide to the living room that’s equally as fun.”

The presenter shares her 1850s Yorkshire cottage with husband Richie Myler, 30, and their two sons Ernie and Louis.

On social media, she has kept followers entertained, demonstrating how she is turning the sweet cottage into their forever home.
