Sharing the image in honour of his wife Jools' birthday, the chef uploaded a picture that showed Jools sitting down and smiling as she cuddled the family dog, a birthday cake lit with candles on the table in front of her.

Surrounding the children's clothes designer were her five children, and the doting mum looked delighted to be celebrating her 47th birthday with her loved ones.
