Even though children across the country have experienced back-to-school month, celebrity parents are just like many other families looking for things to do with the kids.

And Emma Willis, who is married to Matt Willis, is no different having given fans an insight into her fun-filled weekends.

Emma wrote on Instagram, "Listening to the wind and rain, wishing it was last weekend again. When the sun was shining and the air was warm."

The caption continued, "Then we celebrated Matt watching him do what he does best. It was the first time all three of our kids have been old enough to really take in a gig properly, and Trixie's first time watching her dad.

"My heart was bursting watching them watch him. They sang and danced and screamed and jumped up and down and tried furiously to get him to see them, his face when he finally found them in the crowd was a picture..

"Quite possibly my favourite weekend of the year so far…" she added.

And fans have shared their loving responses. One fan put, "Ahh I saw the moment that he found them when he was on stage on London. I didn't realise it was his children, so just makes his reaction even more special. Was an amazing night xx."

Another fan wrote, "OMG. His face when he spotted them. Amazing!"

And a third fan added, "It was heartwarming and emotional to see the kids having such a great time watching their dad."

And Matt has shared how he felt about seeing his children there. Alongside some professional photos of the gig, he wrote, "Last night at the O2 London was truly the best night playing music I have ever had. I loved every second of it! Loved having my family and friends watching too."

He concluded, "Thank you to everybody who came. And thanks so much to everyone who worked so hard to make it happen… and we’ve only just begun. We still have 19 more shows left. I love Busted so much! Peace!!!"
