The Strictly Come Dancing winner, who lives on an actual farm in Sussex, is raising two beautiful children 10-year-old son, Arlo, and 8-year-old daughter, Angelica, with her husband Justin Bower. The family is also cohabiting with 47 animals – ranging from dogs to goats.

But recently, Natasha and Angela’s lives were under a threat when the boat they were relaxing on during their vacation in Greece exploded into a ‘fireball’.

As a result of the explosion, Angelica has suffered 'severe burns'. Kaplinsky, her daughter and another relative, who is believed to be Angelica’s granddad, are thought to be rescued by a fisherman, who then helped to extinguish the horrific blaze.

Corfu Port Authority stated:

Three people were injured after a fire on a boat. The vessel suffered a mechanical failure which caused a fire in the engine room, which was immediately extinguished by the people on the boat.

Natasha owns a five-bed mansion on Corfu called Plumbago — just like the boat where the incident took place.
