As part of her incredible lockdown birthday party, the Loose Women star was treated to a very unusual cake – with goats on top!

The culinary creation was covered in pale green icing with tufts of grass and plants, while a white picket fence surrounded the outside. But the pièce de résistance was, of course, the three brown and white figurines placed on top to represent her three pygmy goats: Rupert, Biscuit and Hazel.

Penny was clearly smitten with her new pets, as she told fans shortly after getting them in 2020: "Falling in love with my new five-month-old Pygmy goats, Rupert, Biscuit and Hazel #goats #pygmygoats." She even went so far as feeding one of the animals directly from her mouth a few weeks later!
