She wrote in the caption: "When your #hair and #makeup team absolutely kill it! All hail @jrhairandbeauty and @emmyclarkson for @hellomag."

Her followers loved the new look, with one writing in the comments, "You look amazing" and another telling her, "You look so sensational and inspiring, like you always are".

The star was done up for an interview and photoshoot with Hello! magazine.

In her chat with the publication, Catherine reminisced about the first dance at her wedding with husband Tom Pitfield, whom she married in 2016.

She said: "There were no nerves back then, it was nothing like I'm feeling now. We hadn't choreographed anything and it was more Tom and I just shuffling along in a prolonged hug rather than a full-on dance routine."

Catherine said they enjoyed their first dance as a married couple to Thinking out Loud by Ed Sheeran.

Speaking further, the Scarborough actress said Tom and her dance partner in the new series of Strictly, South African Johannes Radebe, hit it off right away.

She added: "[Tom] has already invited him round for dinner, so I think Johannes will become part of our family."
