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.’

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.
