Rebecca, who appeared on the 2013 series of I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here!, told her followers: "Thank you for everyone's messages. Summer had an amazing birthday. Thank you!"

Judging by that smile on her face, Summer really did have an amazing birthday!

The news came as a shock to fans, as Rebecca and Harry had only been married for 18 months and recently appeared loved-up in ITVBe's Seven Days With..., but they have insisted they will remain "good friends".

In a statement at the time of their split, the couple said: "It's after much thought and sadness that we confirm our separation. It is on amicable terms and we still remain close friends. We move forward with respect for one another and our focus and commitment is on parenting our gorgeous daughter Summer. This will be our only comment on this private matter. Becky and Harry."
