Zoe Ball has paid a touching tribute to her teenage son, Woody, who is currently competing in the popular Channel 4 show, The Circle. The proud mum shared a photo of her son on Instagram ahead of the series finale, and wrote: "So super proud of our best boy Woody as @c4thecircle draws to a climatic finale this week. He’s been true to himself, full of love, honesty & daftness. He is made of pure magic & we cant wait to cuddle him & have him home."

Chatting about his new friends on the show, she added: "Hope he brings Tim, Ella, Emelle, Sy & co for tea soon. Appreciate there’s been some incredible game playing but as Sammie/James would say I can’t lie - it’s been an emotional watch at times. Stay golden woo. Whoever wins on Friday, it’s really been smashing telly." The TV presenter will also be making an appearance on the show via a video message to Woody on Thursday night's episode, alongside her ex-husband, Norman Cook, and their daughter, Nelly.
