While Andrea shared a video of herself doing her yoga session, the star revealed how she loves the way the form of exercise makes her feel.

Writing to her 254,000 followers, Andrea said: “Yoga is something I’ve practiced for years. And there’s a reason I say ‘practice’…

“I am not a supple person, so doing yoga doesn’t come naturally – I’m stiff as a board! But I love it. I love how it makes me feel, in my head as well as my stretched body when I finish.

“You don’t need fancy equipment, just yourself. I like to burn some incense (sage is my favourite), close my eyes, and off I go.”

The ITV star went on to share her views on a video she found and encouraged her followers to “challenge” themselves during this difficult time.

She continued: “Today I discovered @realtraviseliot on @youtube and tried his detox routine. It was about an hour long and much harder than I thought it would be! But I loved it, and will be back.

“It’s good to challenge yourself, especially when our lives are so strange, as they are at the moment.”

Andrea added: “So setting little goals, something to lean into, push gently against and keep gently pushing until you are where you want to be, is good for the soul.”

The author concluded her post saying: “You don’t have to knock it out of the park every day.

“Just turning up every day and doing it is sometimes enough.”

Soon after the writer shared her video, fans flocked to her post to say how “inspiring” she was and commented on how she looked “young and slim” during her session.

One told Andrea: “That’s why your so young and slim well done you xx,” while another commented: “You’re very inspiring x.” (Sic)

One of the presenter’s followers picked up on how her dog joined in with her stretches, as they wrote: “It’s wonderful that your pet dog has decided to take up yoga exercise with you…

“Though probably need to do more stretching and meditation. Keep safe!”

Another who was inspired by Andrea’s message told her how they started practising yoga three weeks ago and they “love it”.

They added: “I have never been a very stretchy person but wow I feel so much better every day and sleep so better too, I am planning to keep up with it and see how I can improve my life.”
