Jamie Oliver has been hard at work all summer, but earlier this week the celebrity chef took some time off to head to Hedingham Castle with his wife Jools and their three younger children.

"One hour for us to save the headmistress. Sadly, we couldn't save her haha, but a lot of fun was had! Thank you @hedinghamcastle team," he wrote across the image, revealing that they hadn't been able to complete the challenge.

Despite the funny hiccup, it's been a great summer for the family of seven, who earlier this month marked their youngest's birthday.

River turned 5 on 7 of August and to celebrate the occasion the mother-of-five took to Instagram.
