Inside Diversity star Ashley Banjo’s incredible Essex home with HUGE kingsize bed and cute pet dogs

ASHLEY Banjo is feeling  "proud and positive" in his family home with wife Francesca Abbott and their two children.

The young family took shelter in their bright Essex home as Ashley was bombarded with racist abuse for his dance group, Diversity's performance highlighting the Black Lives Matter movement on Britain's Got Talent

Ashley has been busy filling in for Simon Cowell as a judge on BGT after the music mogul broke his back in an electric bike accident.

The dance, which saw a police officer kneeling on Ashley Banjo, sparked 24,500 complaints to the broadcast regulator, Ofcoma, after it aired on September 5.

However, Ashley remains defiant and says he would do the dance "100 times over" after Ofcom deemed the performance to be appropriate.

Along with BGT judging, Ashley also has his hands full with "daddy duties" to Rose, 19 months, and Micah, five months.

The Diversity founder married fellow professional dancer and talent manager Francesca in 2015 and has showcased their stunning home in photos on Instagram.

The Britain's Got Talent judge Ashley, 31, lives in an amazing house in Essex with the blonde beauty.

The place is very homely with a cottage feel, with white interiors and wood panelling.

Mahogany picture frames filled with cherished family moments adorn the walls of their chic abode.

While the living room is full to the brim with fancy furniture and fittings, including grey sofas and ornate rugs.

Throughout the property  are spotless floors, with fluffy grey rugs in the living area.

The star has a flashy Mercedes in the driveway and room for two cars.

There are candles scattered about the place, as are velvet crushed cushions.

Meanwhile, Ashley and Francesca recently upgraded their bed to a HUGE king size and the BGT judge was seen lugging the base up the stairs.

He captioned his photo: "She calls it ‘NESTING’... I call it hiding the sky remote from me, getting me to carry a king size bed downstairs at 1 in the morning,

"Then hoovering every nook and cranny of the hallway and spare room in preparation for our B&Q fuelled Nursery decorating extravaganza to begin this morning."

He went on: "... To be honest - I love her for it And can’t wait for our little one to get here!

"These are the golden moments to remember right?

He told fans he loved his wife and baby daughter “more than words can say."
