Christine wished her sister 'happy birthday' on Instagram

In September, Christine gave fans a glimpse at Patricia's second birthday celebrations, complete with an incredible-looking Peppa Pig cake.

In a series of photos, the magnificent cake was covered with soft pink icing and edible decorations of swirls, roses and butterflies. The delicious-looking masterpiece was made by the family's go-to bakery Fondant Fleur Cakes - the same company which was used for Christine's stepdaughter Isla's pick and mix birthday cake back in May.

"Our little girl is the big two already! We mightn't have been able to have a big party but we made up for it with a #peppapig cake, presents and plenty of balloons @balloonguyscompany @partiesandsigns @jadesbakes2020 @fondant_fleur_cakes_," the doting mum gushed in the caption.

The small celebration certainly looked like one to remember with all the pastel coloured balloons and birthday presents dotted around their stunning home.
