It comes after Shirlie and Spandau Ballet singer Martin got to work restoring a stunning home and documented the progress on Instagram after leaving their family home in Hertfordshire in search of a bigger garden.

Writing in October, Shirlie wrote: “Thank you for following my personal page for Home & Garden. Martin and I recently moved into an old Victorian house which needed a lot of work.

Shirlie described how she had a ‘love of homes’

“My dad was a builder and I learned a lot from him about remodeling houses. I remember as a little girl I used to draw house plans and show them to my dad and ask him if he would build me a house. when I’m older.

“Well, my love of the homes is still there, but sadly my dad is gone, but his spirit will be there as I bring this lovely home back to life.”

Speaking of the move, Shirlie explained, “I was also looking for a bigger garden as I would like to eventually save more dogs and a few other animals and needed more space. As I said before, I have never been afraid of change, in fact I welcome it.

Previously, Martin and Shirley lived with their two adult children Roman and Harley, regularly sharing glimpses of the light and airy decor of the family home, particularly the beautiful gardens.
