Beside it was a delicious-looking cake that came in its very own clear presentation box with a giant pink bow. The sweet treat was covered in pink icing with clouds and rainbows expertly attached around the base.

On top of the cake were more clouds, a 3D moon and a large unicorn. The number one was attached in gold glitter and on the base was written 'Ella' in white icing.

Captioning the snap, Ola wrote: "Someone is having a lay-in on her birthday. Baby's first birthday."

Speaking to the camera, the former Dancing on Ice champion said: "It's just gone midnight and mummy and daddy are still blowing up balloons and putting up bunting and all different things, wrapping presents.

"I know she's only one-year-old and she won't remember it but it's more for us. It's our first child."

Turning the camera to Ola, James asked his wife: "Is this party for you or for Ella, Ola?" To which she jokily replied: "For me!"

Happy Birthday, Ella!

Chatting about Ella's birthday to HELLO! last week, the couple admitted that it would be a quiet affair due to lockdown.

Ola said: "I’ve ordered a lovely, pretty cake and I’ve ordered balloons. I’ve bought her a lovely outfit, a pretty ballerina skirt with a headband."

"And that’s it really," James concluded. "It’s sad really but you’ve got to think that people are going through worse. I mean, she won't remember her first birthday anyway. It’s more for the parents!"
