Jamie Oliver and wife Jools weren't going to let the lockdown from stopping their daughter Daisy having a birthday to remember! The teenager turned 17 on Friday, and while she couldn’t go out with her friends to celebrate or invite them over to her house, her parents made sure she didn't miss out on the fun by throwing her a family party in their basement. The celebrity chef shared a sweet video on Instagram of himself and his wife with the birthday girl and her older sister Poppy, 18, dressed up for the occasion and dancing. The doting parents had even decorated the room to make it extra special, with heart-shaped homemade bunting visible in the background of the shot.
