As much of the UK is plunged into a stifling heatwave – the idea of a quick dip or even leisurely linger in your own private pool – is one that many would dream off.
But the former GMTV presenter wasn’t doing either as he showed of the idyllic setting on his Instagram story as he captioned the posts: “Just a perfect day… 32c” – while Lou Reed’s classic tune played in the background.
The 56-year-old shared shots view from an elevated vantage point – possibly a balcony – with the scene below showing a glistening pool and circular set up with parasol to escape the scorching sun.

Followers of the opinionated broadcaster could also see the carefully manicured lawn and plentiful greenery surrounding the star’s home.
In another shot he captioned: “Just a perfect day to drink Sangria in the park.”
This shot showed more of the stunning setting surrounding the presenter’s Sussex pad which also has home for his classic car collection.
Piers was previously mocked after complaining about being unable to enjoy the pools at two of his homes.
The presenter, back when he was a host on Good Morning Britain, offered up his Sussex home to his parents during the first lockdown – and instead bunkered down in his London pad.
He also let friends stay at his home in Beverly Hills as he was unable to leave the country due to the restrictions.
Grumbling on GMB in July last year, Piers said: “I have never been in one place, I don’t think in my adult life as long as I’ve been in London.”
Co-host Susanna Ried then asked him: “And how many of your properties would you have visited in that time?”
Susanna then mockingly asked, while overly dramatic sad music played: “Oh dear. How many swimming pool have you got?”
But Piers replied: “I’m not asking for sympathy. I’m just saying it’s a new form of fresh hell… no sympathy required, it’s just annoying.”
The sprawling estate in Sussex is perfect for summer parties with lots of outdoor furniture including a wooden dining area and rattan sofas.
When he’s not lavishing in his country retreat in the East Sussex village of Newick, he has a city townhouse in west London at his disposal.
While he also has a luxury mansion in Los Angeles, with his portfolio of properties said to be worth £8.9 million.

The presenter currently has more time on his hands after sensationally quitting GMB earlier this year in a row over his comments about Meghan Markle.
He has been spending his time backing the many sporting fixtures including the Euros, Formula One and The Open.
But without the gruelling early starts of his former job, he’s even hit the gym himself for an Olympic-inspired training regime.
