"I love this first photo because it reminds me of being away somewhere sunny and beautiful on your birthday. Today's maybe a tad more subdued - but there will be cake, bubbles and most likely a kitchen disco for four!"

Over on Stories, Tess gave fans a glimpse of the birthday cake she treated Vernon to – the delicious-looking creation was complete with buttercream icing, jelly babies and chocolate jazzies.

Over the past year, both Vernon and Tess have spent increasing amounts of time at home with their daughters, Phoebe, 16, and 11-year-old Amber, during the UK's lockdown restrictions.

In November, the parents were either busy filming Strictly or taking part in I'm A Celebrity. During a recent chat with HELLO!, Tess opened up about lockdown life and described their time together as invaluable.

The Strictly host revealed how much she loves this throwback

She said: "It's a levelling experience. We are in it together. I mean, as a family, we've always been a tight-knit unit. I'm very much about focusing on the positive, which at this time is, of course, extremely challenging."

On how she likes to unwind, Tess added: "After the kids have had their breakfast and they're doing their first online lesson of the day, I will take myself off for a 20-minute online yoga class because it's brilliant.

"Not just for the physical side, the flexibility side. It's great for putting you in a really good headspace so you feel like you're in control of your day rather than being bombarded by outside elements such as the news you can't control."
