The presenter shared several snaps of the party on Instagram, with the caption, ‘21st birthday celebration in lockdown, just the 3 of us. Kitchen disco. Thanks so much @bonnevents for the amazing balloon decorations.

'All dropped off outside our house with clear instructions how to DIY the decs. Social distancing. We love you Leah. Happy birthday beautiful #21stbirthday.'

The adorable snaps show that Leah’s big day featured some extravagant balloons, a designer cake and a kitchen disco. Denise, partner Eddie Boxshall and Leah can be seen enjoying some champagne and posing next to huge number 21 filled with pink balloons.
