Just last week, the Voice UK judge showed off her first attempt at making Jamie Oliver’s homemade tomato soup. “Incoming…” she simply wrote alongside a snap of an assortment of different tomatoes, later adding: “Quick easy and tasty soup, courtesy of @jamieoliver.”

Emma and Matt are adept when it comes to homeschooling their kids. Back in March during the first COVID-19 lockdown, the presenter transformed her living room into a make-shift school.

At the time, the mum-of-three posted a snap of her two eldest children hard at work at a large dining table, with pens, pencil cases and worksheets spread out in front of them. “Day 1… homeschooling,” she wrote, adding a scared face emoji.

In May, Emma spoke with MailOnline about the pressures of homeschooling. “For me in the beginning we put a lot of pressure on ourselves to be perfect schoolteachers and make them have the absolute school day that they would have but at home,” she shared.

“I didn’t want my stress at having to be a schoolteacher and not being good enough having a knock on effect to them and them getting stressed because they know I’m getting stressed, or them getting worried because they know I’m getting wound up.”

She added: “After a couple of weeks you realise, you know what I am not a schoolteacher, they aren’t at school and we have to do what we can do. I have never loved teachers more in my whole life.”
