It's not the first time that the British actress has shared her gruelling workout regime with her fans. In a separate video, Daisy can be seen working on a series of exercises in the gym, including lifting impressive weights.

"@gravyz12 has returned and #fridayfitness is here! Working on controlling the eccentric (slow on the way down) for injury prevention," she explained in the short clip's accompanying caption. "For this week only this video features: me falling out of a press up, jack correcting my deadlift tekkers, me and him having a DMC during spider bicep curls and a post workout ice bath. THAT'S how I get through work outs, lots of chat to distract me from the pain!#GAAAAAAINZ #toostrongfortoolong #likemaryjbligesaid."

It's not doubt been an exciting few weeks for the star, who also accompanied Prince William and Prince Harry on a tour of the Star Wars film set last week.

The royal brothers explored the backstage area at Pinewood Studios, including showing off their sibling rivalry in a playful lightsaber duel.

While William brandished a white lightsaber, his brother Harry's weapon turned red, prompting him to ask: "Why do I always have to be the baddy?" Nonetheless he continued in his best menacing voice: "Come on, let's dance."

After being teased by Harry about his unenthusiastic moves, William retorted: "We can do this later outside."
