Bill welcomed some very special guests to his 11th birthday party on Saturday – Roman Kemp – Kate's I'm A Celebrity campmate – and his dad, Martin. Kate explained: "Global Smooth radio provided an extraordinary cake, delivered by Roman Kemp and Martin Kemp!" "So you had Martin Kemp from Spandau Ballet singing Happy Birthday to Bill?" Ben asked. "It was extraordinary," Kate replied. "And there was a good old Nerf war, and a fantastic camp out in the garden in a huge tent," she explained as footage from the party played.

"Derek is so brilliant at this, organising treasure hunts & boys own adventures so mentioned to @myleeneklass really didn't want to let Bill down & did she know anyone with a tent we could borrow in case it was wet.
