The family also celebrated Jools and Jamie's 20th wedding anniversary at the end of June, and since restaurants and pubs were closed at the time, they had a picnic together instead.

Meanwhile, in April, Jools opened up about whether she would like to expand her family. Speaking on fitness podcast The Red Room, the mum-of-five confessed she would love to have a sixth child by the time she is 47. "I want to keep going until I can't," she said. "I will probably think about stopping wanting another baby when I am about 47."

Admitting that she has been "bugging" the celebrity chef for another child, she added: "Jamie says, 'You can't put an age on it because you keep on talking about it' but just one more for River. I want to just stop bugging Jamie. But I feel like I don't know. I think one more."
