Holly Willoughby has shared an emotional picture ahead of son Chester’s huge milestone.

September has arrived, and parents everywhere will be familiar with the back to school routine.

Presenter Holly Willoughby was one of them, sharing a sweet photo ahead of 4-year-old Chester’s first day of school.

Holly’s photo showed three pairs of shoes lined up, with a caption that read: ‘Back to school...who else’s front door looks like this 🙋🏼♀️... Big day for Chester tomorrow, 1st day of school...

‘Good-luck to anyone else starting their school journey...can’t believe he’s at this stage already ❤️’

Many wished Chester good luck too, as we all remember the nerves about going to a new school.

Holly has rejoined presenter and friend Phillip Schofield on the This Morning sofa, after a summer break.
