EASTENDERS actress Kate Robbins has revealed her stunning colourful pad away from her on-screen life in Walford.
The Sun was first to reveal the actress' latest telly role as music producer Jen Glover on the BBC soap.
Yet away from Albert Square, the stage and screen star, 62, hunkers down in a beautifully sophisticated pad with a lounge adorned with wooden floorboards and a pastel-pink sofa.
A grey settee also sits in the same room, which is given a modern boost courtesy of a chest of drawers with a jazzy zig-zag engraving.
The telly favourite often documents her Celebrity Juice star daughter, Emily Atack, and her talent director sister Martha spending time at the property.
Another image on her Instagram account shows Emily in another lounge area, this time snuggled on a lavish patterned green sofa, to which Kate added the caption: "Quick power nap at mine before she’s off to sound check."
Kate's home is particularly popular with Emily's dog Penny, who can be seen snoozing on a black and white patterned rug.
The pooch is nestled in what appears to be a office room complete with fresh white dressing table and antique-style patterned chairs.
In the kitchen, Kate keeps things homely with a granite worktop and tiled walls and plentiful fresh beg on the counter.
While cooking, she can look out on her stunning garden which boasts a colourful outdoor seating area.

Proving she plays a good host, Kate captured a snap of afternoon tea served up on her al fresco furniture.
A dark wicker L-Shaped seat is matched with an armchair and table at the heart of the outdoor space.
Meanwhile a raised decking area adds to the entertainment space while Kate's perfectly-mowed grass adds to the attractive space.
Large doors open out onto the outdoor area, with Emily recently seen celebrating her mum's birthday on their outdoor sofas.
Back on-screen, Kate's character was brought in by pal Rocky, played by Brian Conley, to mastermind the fledgling pop career of Whitney Dean, played by Shona McGarty.
While only in Albert Square for a short stint, she is set to make an impact as “no-nonsense, old-school rocker” Jen.
A source told the Sun on Sunday: “Everyone was very excited to get Kate on board for this part, because they felt she was the perfect fit.
“Not only is she a great actress, but she has plenty of experience of the music industry too. And they weren’t disappointed — she did a brilliant job.”
