Poppy has completed her first year of studies, and while Daisy's are ongoing, she made the trip down for her brother's birthday. And in an adorable photo, Jools showed that Daisy had a close bond with her brothers as they saw her off.

In the black-and-white snap, Buddy, 11, and River, five, gave their sister the biggest hug, as the car was fully packed behind them.
