david furnish reveals he and husband elton john have been camping with their sons during lockdown

They’ve been spending the majority of lockdown in their £6million Los Angeles mansion with the couple owning a total of six properties.

And David Furnish has revealed that he and husband Elton John have been camping in the woods surrounding of one of their lavish homes as a fun activity for their children during the coronavirus lockdown.

Talking to singer Lulu, 71, on an Instagram Live on Monday night, the filmmaker, 57, explained that they have been doing a more ‘restricted’ version of self isolation due to Elton being 73-years-old.

During the chat, David admitted he was ‘conscious’ that their two sons Zachary, nine, and Elijah, seven, haven’t been able to see their friends so they’ve been doing lots of fun activities at home including their first camping experience in their garden.

It is not known which mansion David was referring to but it’s likely to be their Windsor home which has a sprawling garden complete with a large lake to feed ducks. 

He said: ‘Because Elton is 73 we’ve been doing a more restricted version of lockdown so one thing the boys haven’t been able to do is get out and mix with their friends which I feel really conscious of so how many activities can we do with them at home? 

‘I grew up in Canada, I was a cub scout, I was a boy scout, I love camping, and I am a camper.’

David revealed that he and Elton didn’t give their two sons a ‘glamping’ experience and instead took them to the woods in their garden where they had to build a fire pit, pitch a tent and gather wood.

He said: ‘I didn’t do glamping with the boys – that’s the posh camping where everything laid out beautifully for you. 

‘We just went out into the woods here on our land and taught the boys how to clear a campsite, and dug and built a fire pit and pitched a tent and gathered wood for kindling.

‘Taught them how to start a fire, how to cook dinner in the fire, how to roast marshmallows and they hadn’t done any of that stuff before.

‘Just walking to the end of your own garden we were going away into a campsite.’ 

David said the ‘silver lining’ of lockdown has been spending so much time together as a family as Elton is currently off from his touring.

He sweetly said: ‘The silver lining in this cloud is that we’ve been together every single day, every meal and we’ve been doing so much together which isn’t normally the case because Elton is off on the road touring and doing shows.

‘To see and be with the boys as much as I ever have been has just been amazing. I’m watching them grow and change every day right before my eyes.’

Elton had to postpone his Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour earlier this year due to the coronavirus pandemic.  

David and Elton own six properties in total located in California, Atlanta, London, Windsor, Nice and Venice.

Elton even joked about owning too many properties in a 2016 interview with The Telegraph, he said: ‘I’ve too many homes, probably, but I love them. It’s a matter of creature comforts.

‘It’s nice to stay in your own place, and you just accumulate them. Anyway, I’m not as bad as Keith Richards. He turned up in Paris once and he’d forgotten where he lived!

‘To be honest, a normal night for me would be putting the kids to bed, reading them a story, and then having dinner with David at home.’

She went out all out for the annual TOWIE Halloween party this year.

And Yazmin Oukhellou marked this year’s Halloween by sharing a gruesome snap of her ‘botched Barbie’ costume from the event on her Instagram page.

The TOWIE star, 26, was covered in surgery markings across her face and chest, while her bust, forehead and lips were lined with bloodied scars.

Yazmin switched her brunette tresses for a platinum blonde curly wig, which was also stained with fake blood, offering a frightful result.

As well as her special effects make-up, Yazmin also sported a glamorous full face of foundation, as well as a dramatic eye make-up look.

Yazmin also made it look like she had just undergone a boob job, as her ample chest was wrapped in blood-stained bandages. 

She captioned the snap: ‘Botched Barbie. Happy Halloween.’

Yazmin has openly shared about going under the knife with her fans on social media.

In 2018, the bombshell revealed that she had undergone a second boob job.

Taking to Instagram to show off the results, she shared a snap of herself posing seductively on a boat in a sexy black bikini, Yazmin admitted she was ‘so pleased’ with the results after her previous augmentation left her struggling to feel confident.

As well as her two breast augmentations, the TOWIE stunner also previously admitted to having a rhinoplasty last year after breaking her nose.

Once again choosing to announce her op on social media, she explained: ‘I had a previous broken nose and deviated septum so surgery was the only option for me.

‘I am so glad I did it as I was nervous at first but so happy that I can now breathe properly and that the small bump has gone. As I have stated before in previous posts I am NOT telling people to run out and have cosmetic surgery due to vanity.

‘I am saying that if you want to get surgery, have been thinking about it for a long time and like me I had no other option then people should feel comfortable to and feel they won’t be judged.’

Another TOWIE star who has been open about her experience with cosmetic surgery is Amy Childs, who revealed she regretted her choices and felt like a ‘freak’. 

In a BBC documentary earlier this year, Amy warned two young fans about the potential dangers of surgery and admitted she is ‘part of the problem’ with young girls wanting it done.

Amy also went all out for Halloween this year ahead of the show’s special, as she dressed up as an Egyptian mummy for the occasion. 

The reality star wore zombie-style eye contacts and wrapped her chest, neck and hair in strips of bandage.

emma willis takes children to empty pumpkin patch for halloween

Emma Willis shared snaps of herself celebrating Halloween in fun-filled style on Friday, when she took her three children to visit a pumpkin patch.

However, the 44-year-old TV host’s efforts proved a little more testing than she likely expected, as the family arrived to find the area completely stripped of pumpkins. 

Taking to Instagram, the stunning broadcaster shared a snap of herself standing in the middle of an empty field, adding the caption: ‘And when she got there, the pumpkin patch was bare…’

After conceding that she ‘maybe should have gone earlier’, the star later shared another image declaring that she’d successfully sourced the winter squash.

Sharing a snap of her husband Matt Willis, 37, victoriously holding a pumpkin aloft, she also showed her four ‘pumpkins’ – Isabelle, 11, Ace, eight, and Trixie, four – as as well – walking through the muddy field.

Emma’s outing comes after she addressed the conversation that was sparked about her son Ace, after she shared a snap of him wearing a pink top and sporting long blond hair.

Appearing on Good Morning Britain earlier this month, the presenter said she was ‘overwhelmed’ by the reaction, sweetly saying: ‘He’s just my son in a pink top.’ 

Family fun: She was accompanied by her four 'pumpkins': Isabelle, 11, Ace, eight, and Trixie, four, as well as her husband Matt Willis, 37

She continued: ‘For me that’s normality. He loves colour, he’s always had long hair, he’s a free and able-minded boy.

‘He’s like, ” why do I have to dress in green and blue and grey, when I love red and pink and purple?” He’s always been that way.’

She continued: ‘We’re trying to raise him as an open-minded, inclusive individual. There were some negative bits, but that’s where the block button is great!’

Emma had appeared on the show to talk about her new charity initiative, Be My Guest in which fans pay £5 and can win a call with a host of celebs.

Keep cosy in a Next roll neck like Emma

Emma Willis always looks chic, so it just makes sense that she was given the opportunity to create her own clothing collection with high street brand Next.

We spotted the TV star wearing some of her pieces as she stepped out with her family this week.

Emma opted for a dreamy tan roll neck jumper from her collection, which she paired with a matching coat, flare trousers and chunky boots.

Now that winter is here, it’s all about layering up in style and this jumper ticks all the right boxes. It features a high neckline, with elegant long sleeves and a super soft cashmere touch.

Fearne was among a slew of stars who shared sweet comments for Emma’s son, writing: ‘I miss Ace! When is he making me that dress?’

Over the weekend Emma had hailed her son as her biggest style inspiration as she shared a snap of him wearing his pink crop top, ripped jeans, and pink Nike trainers.

Emma and her husband Matt, 37, are very private with their family life and keep the faces of their kids Isabelle, 11, Ace, and Trixie, four hidden in any social media posts.

In the image of Ace posted by his mum Emma, his face was masked by a mass of long blond hair, as the Big Brother host gushed over his fashion choices.

She captioned the image: ‘My little style icon ❤️ (Ace, not Matt )’, referencing the fact her husband of 12 years was stood in the background of the photo.

Fans praised the presenter for posting the photo, with one saying: ‘Just shows how far we have to go in breaking down gender stereotypes. Pink is simply a colour. Hair grows. Let kids (or adults) wear whatever they want!’

She recently opened up about how she will never take her age for granted.

And Nigella Lawson appeared in high spirits as she headed to a television filming studio with a spring in her step on Saturday afternoon in London.

The TV chef, 50, cut a chic figure in a red checked shirt which she wore underneath a black wrap jacket and a pair of black skinny jeans.

She styled her glamorous daytime look with a pair of knee-high black suede boots, which added inches to her frame.

Nigella wore her brunette locks in loose glamorous curls and sported light touches of make-up, including mascara and dark liner.

The TV personality carried her belongings in a tote bag slung over her shoulder.

Earlier this week, Nigella revealed she never saw herself reaching 60 after witnessing the deaths of multiple family members under the age of 50.

She said she will never take her age for granted after watching those around her die young; her mother at 48, her sister aged 32 and then her late husband John Diamond at 47.

Speaking in Good Housekeeping magazine’s December issue, the television chef said: ‘I’m not a planner – apart from when it comes to food! But to be completely honest, I’ve never been able to take for granted that I’d be alive by this age.

‘I’m not a planner – apart from when it comes to food!’: Nigella revealed she never saw herself being 60 years old

‘My mother died at 48 and my sister at 32. And then John [Diamond, her late husband] at 47. 

‘So, even if I were the sort of person who planned ahead, I don’t think I would have seen myself here… I kind of think you can’t do anything about it [ageing] so why complain?’

She admitted going through the trauma of losing those close to her has changed her entire attitude towards the ageing process.  

Nigella explained: ‘I also know what the alternative is, so it feels wrong when you’ve been surrounded by people who have died young to say “My hair’s awful, I’ve got to get my roots done” or “My hands look like lizards”. 

‘So I don’t dwell on it. As long as you’re healthy, that really is the most important thing.’

Her mother Vanessa Salmon died in 1985 from liver cancer and her sister Thomasina died from breast cancer eight years later in 1993.  

Her first husband, journalist John Diamond, was diagnosed with throat cancer in 1997 and died in March 2001. 

The pair met in 1986 when they were both writing for The Sunday Times and they married in Venice in 1992.   

They had two children together; daughter Cosima, now 26, and son Bruno, now 24.
