The first image on the carousel featured the mother-of-five cuddled up with her youngest, River, who was all cosy in his pyjamas. Jools rocked a casual grey T-shirt and shorts but most importantly a huge paper birthday crown.

Jamie was so excited for Jools to open her presents

The special headpiece, which appears to have been created by her youngsters said: "Mum," in multi-coloured letters and was adorned with a large rainbow as well as little multi-coloured love hearts.

Other snaps saw Jools posing with her lookalike daughters as well as romantic snaps alongside her husband of 22 years.

Birthday wishes flooded in from friends and fans, who were all delighted by the string of touching photos.

The couple's eldest daughter, Poppy, is rarely seen by followers on social media but last month was captured by her adoring parents as she paid them an exciting visit.

The 20-year-old student was seen smiling patiently as she looked up from her desk to see Jools taking her photo. The proud mum joked that in her excitement to be spending time with 'Pops', she was "driving her mad already".

Jools captioned the special moment with a sweet message: "Pops is home and I get to study with her… but I am driving her mad already. Need to stop asking her questions and getting her to help me. Love you Pops xx."
