Emma Willis treated her three kids and her parents to a beach break on one of the hottest days of the year, but her husband Matt was nowhere to be seen.
The Voice UK presenter shared a series of snaps on her Instagram stories as her family enjoyed a trip to the coast at the weekend.
In the first photo which she captioned “beach day”, her children Isabelle, 11, Ace, nine, and five-year-old Trixie are seen walking towards the sand as the sea sparkles in the background.
Another snap shows her smiling parents sitting on deck chairs on the beach with the words “momma and poppa bear” followed by the heart emoji.
Emma’s actor pal Joe Allen was also invited on the weekend jaunt.

The pair, both wearing sunglasses and swimming costumes, cuddled up for a selfie in the sea.
She captioned the snap: “Love you @ijoeallen.”
The 45-year-old telly star, who lives with her family in Hertfordshire, appeared to hint she’d like to be near the coast more often.

Her next photo showed a beach hut with the words “want one”.
This was followed by snaps of her three children with former Busted star Matt playing in the sand.
Another silhouette shot of Emma and pal Joe simply said the words “happy days”.

The final photo shows a giggling Emma, wearing a sun hat and khaki leopard print kaftan thought to be from her new Next collection, fooling around in the sea.
But the British sea proved to be a bit cold for the TV star as she captioned the image: “Bit chilly on the old toes…”
Emma often shares snaps of her brood, most recently on the bank holiday weekend when she and husband Matt took a holiday with pals Giovanna and Tom Fletcher, who also have three children.

For their staycation, the gang hired two neighbouring wooden cabins which Giovanna shared a snap of revealing her glee at being so close to pal Emma.
I’m a Celeb Winner Giovanna, who has children Buzz, Buddy and Max with husband Tom, joked: ‘Finally neighbours with the Willis family!”
After they settled in, the group visited Warwick castle and spent the day exploring the grounds of the historical venue.
Later on, the adults treated themselves to an afternoon tea – which Emma confessed was a grown-up affair.
"We put the kids on a separate table… mostly so they didn’t pinch too much of our cake."
