Mike Bushell has become a regular favorite at Strictly Come Dancing, thanks to his & # 39; dad-dancing & # 39; and breathtaking routines with partner Katya Jones.
And when he doesn't practice his lifts in a practice studio with Katya, Mike, 53, lives an idyllic life in a beautiful Hampshire village with his four-month-old wife Emily and their children.
Mike and Emily have given a glimpse of their Overton home on their social media accounts, sharing their family garden and quirky accents like a gnome collection.

Mike and Katya ended up in the dance off on Sunday evening after not winning the votes of the viewers with their energetic Charleston.
But it was Viscount Emma Weymouth who was sent home over Mike, the judges ruling his dance as their favorite.
Mike and Katya were in the bottom two for the first time in week 5, after their Salsa to Jump On It to The Sugar Hill Gang fell with viewers.

However, the dance duo was spared and former England footballer David James and his professional partner Nadiya Bychkova were eliminated instead.
The pair was then in the bottom two during Halloween Week, when the tango did little to excite fans alongside Corrie star Catherine Tyldesley and partner Johannes Radebe, who eventually got the boat after Chief Judge Shirley Ballas had the deciding vote.
After Mike and Katya escaped the results of Sunday's show for the third time, social media were flooded with responses that made the show a & # 39; fix & # 39; after Viscount Emma Weymouth, 33, became the sixth celebrity to leave the dance floor.

Furious Strictly fans went to Twitter again to blow the show for retaining Mike despite & # 39; dozens of errors & # 39 ;.
One said: & # 39; Surprised about the decision to keep Mike Bushell & katana Jones, there were dozens of mistakes !!! Nonsense & # 39;
Another added: & # 39; Seriously, how is Mike Bushell still doing? & # 39; This is definitely a solution. & # 39;
Mike from North Yorkshire – who even received despicable death threats about winning last week's dance-off – challenged BBC Breakfast to defend his position in the show earlier this month.
He has the movements: the popular presenter was meanwhile in the headlines during his strict stint, after being rescued for the second time in two weeks at the weekend

He said: & # 39; It's an entertainment program, we all do our best, you don't really compete with anyone else, you compete with yourself to try to get better and better every week, even if it's just a few of new ones to step.
& # 39; As a non-dancer, I can only put in the hours, do my best and get through it. You have to rise above the abuse on social media, that is one of the sad things on social media.
& # 39; The only thing you can do is do your best, accept the jury's decision and continue. Johannes and Catherine are nice people, I didn't want to see them go, but someone has to go.
& # 39; It's just like football – you have to accept the referee's decision. [The jury members] are the best jury members in the world, they know what they are talking about. If they had sent me home, that would have been the best decision, I cannot get involved.
& # 39; I just have to concentrate on improving and if Katya is happy with what I do, I am happy. & # 39;
& # 39; All you can do is do your best & # 39 ;: Mike – who even received dirty death threats about winning last week's dance-off – defiantly defended his position in the show earlier this month
