The pair have moved from their
stunning £1m cottage in Ditchling, East Sussex to the popular country town which is just eight miles away.
Their new £1.5m abode, which was built by a Russian aristocrat, Baron Vladimir de Wolff in the 1920s, boasts a swimming pool, tennis court and acres of land to enjoy.
Taking to Instagram last month, Zoe thanked removal company Smooth Mover Removals for helping them change locations and hinted to followers that she has an even “bigger veg patch” now.
She wrote: “Major love for this hilarious hardworking crew for moving us today. Simon &
@smoothmoverremovals you guys rock.

And it looks like the move has come in good time as it was revealed earlier this month that the presenter bagged herself a £1million pay rise.
Despite losing a
million listeners on her BBC Radio 2 Breakfast Show, the mum-of-three now has a new salary of £1.36m.
It emerged as the
BBC revealed it’s top earners for this year – and not everyone was as lucky as Zoe with the likes of Gary Lineker getting paid £405k less than the previous year.

Zoe’s pay has soared from £370,000 last year to £1.36million this year.
The star took over the morning slot from Chris Evans last year and bosses think that despite losing listeners, she’s done a good job.
BBC director-general Tim Davie defended Zoe’s pay after she lost millions of listeners in the first year in her new role, saying it was a “punchy” market.
He said: “Zoe is absolutely a broadcaster at the top of her game. She’s delivering over eight million listeners.”

And it seems that things are also going well with her private life too after moving house with her boyfriend of three years, Michael.
The Strictly: It Takes Two host was first linked with construction firm boss back in 2017 when they were spotted heading to a hotel after a night out in Soho.
A year later the couple made their first official
red carpet appearance in December 2018 and since then their relationship has been going from strength to strength.
Their romance came after Zoe was left devastated
by the suicide of her TV cameraman boyfriend Billy Yates, in May 2017.
