Laura Hamilton revealed she was forced to call the fire brigade after a fire broke out during the rebuild of her new home.

The A Place In The Sun presenter, 40, took to Instagram to share a video of a firefighter putting out a blaze which appeared to be in the grounds of her new property.

Charred pieces of wood were seen being sprayed with extinguisher foam as Laura told her followers: ‘Errr… Just a little bit of a mishap at the rebuild this morning with the fire brigade coming to the rescue…’

She did not elaborate on how the fire happened or what had caught a light, but it appeared to be outside the main property rather than the house itself.

Laura has been renovating her new property in Surrey after splitting with her husband Alex Goward after 13 years of marriage at the start of the year.

The couple, who share two children – Rocco, eight, and Talia, six – decided to part ways after finding they were on ‘different paths’ in their lives.

Laura has since been keeping her followers up to date with the renovation on her YouTube channel as she gets stuck in with every aspect of the renovation.

She told OK! last month that the new property felt like home from the first moment she stepped foot inside it, explaining: ‘When I walked through the door, it felt like coming home.

‘I knew from the moment I first saw it. It has such a lovely feeling about it. I do feel like this is my little place in the country.’

While the property is undergoing cosmetic renovations, Laura also has big plans to add a two-storey extension to add two more bedrooms to the house as well as adding a gym.
