It's about that time of year when the new school uniforms are washed and ironed, name badges are sewn onto coats and jumpers and the important task of choosing school bags, shoes and stationery comes into play for parents and children up and down the country. And it's not just us real folk who have this to deal with, but our favourite celebrities too.
Many of them have already waved their darling sons and daughters off on their first day back at school or nursery, and they've been sharing how they've been prepping for the back to school rush on social media – including where they bought their children's school uniforms, bags and shoes from.
The Mummy Diaries' Billie Faiers shared her daughter Nelly's first school uniform, including a clothes-dryer full of washed and ironed school shirts. One of the cute short-sleeved shirts can be seen to be from Marks & Spencer, a favourite among many mums and dads for their quality pieces and affordable prices.
This Morning's Holly Willoughby was one of the first to take to Instagram to show her back to school prep. On Sunday night she shared a picture of three backpacks and two pairs of school shoes, including a pair of girl's shoes for daughter Belle and a pair of Kickers for son Harry. The backpacks were all black, with one monogrammed HJB, presumably for Harry, and another featured fluffy keyrings.
For Ronan and Storm Keating's young son Cooper, it was a plush Paw Patrol backpack to see him through his first day at nursery. The bag is available from Deichmann for £9.99 and features Chase the police dog. Captioning the pic, Storm wrote: "Coops wearing his big boy backpack."
And we're rather pleased to see that some celebs struggle with sewing like we do. Fearne Cotton posted her attempt at sewing son Rex's name tag into his school jumper, with the caption "sewing is not my strong point." Ours neither Fearne!
