Taking to Instagram over the weekend, celebrity chef Jamie posted an IGTV of his mini-me as the duo ventured into the garden to collect some honey from Jamie's own beehive. "OMG haha River cracks me up," wrote Jamie. "Happy Sunday folks here's to the last of the summer's honey, delicious!"

Others noted how delightful it was to see Jamie spending time with his youngest, teaching his children all about how to care for the animals and respect the family's bee colony.

Jamie then proceeded to make delicious buttered toast with fresh honey before telling river to "go give it to mum". How sweet!

The chef's wife Jools Oliver took to Instagram earlier last week to open up about an "emotional" and "exhausting" time.

Jools shared the heartwarming video to her Instagram page

She wrote: "A week so far of many emotional and exhausting 'firsts' all leaving me a little floored but extremely grateful x. One of my favourite captures from this week is Buds helping River with his first school tie xxx."

The sweet image shows ten-year-old Buddy helping his little brother, River, put on his tie ahead of school. It seems like it's been a busy time for the Oliver household with the launch of Jamie's latest book, Together, and with their children returning to school and university.
