And as rehearsals for the new series take place behind the scenes, Tess is still pining for sunnier scenes.
Tess uploaded a throwback snap of her relaxing on a family holiday in the Maldives back in the spring.
One of the pics sees her lounging in a sumptuous hanging chair, while others show her husband Vernon Kaye and children Phoebe, 14, and Amber, 10.
I’m throwing it back to the best birthday I ever had - on the holiday of a lifetime.
She accompanied the post by saying: "Perfect Paradise. For #tbt I'm throwing it back to the best birthday I ever had - on the holiday of a lifetime, in the beautiful Maldives back in April with the family.
"Soaked up every super-special moment and even had a go at paddleboarding - while baby sharks were swimming all around us - you can just make them out in the photo!
"Special memories and truly a little piece of heaven on Earth #maldives #kanahura #wishiwasthere."
Many of her 447,000 followers took to the social media site to express their opinions.
"Legs that go on forever," one gushed.
Another wrote: "Looks like paradise, Hope I can get there one day."
"It truly is the most amazing place in the [world]. The kindest people, ever!!" agreed another.
One follower commented on Tess's daughters: "The girls have grown soooo much!!!"
Earlier in the summer, Tess and Vernon, 45, got dressed up to the nines and were spotted in a rare appearance together at Wimbledon.
The couple, who wed in 2003, turned up for the tennis for the third year in a row - and managed to bag the best seats.
Tess looked stunning in a pastel pink one-shoulder dress with a lace overlay.
And her hubby also scrubbed up well in a light navy suit, dark navy tie and sky blue shirt.
