It's World Book Day, where children across the UK dress up as their favourite book characters for the school day. If you've sent off your kids in their costumes this morning, we hope you're recovering on the sofa with a nice cup of tea right now! But us normal folk aren't the only ones to join in with the WBD theme – celebrity parents also love to create fabulous costumes for their children and many of them share photos of their kids on social media.

TV presenter Rochelle Humes was one of the first stars to share a snap of her children's outfits on Thursday morning (above). The This Morning presenter dressed her kids Alaia-Mai and Valentina up as Matilda and Bing Bunny. So sweet!

Take a look at these celeb kids' World Book Day looks below…
