Chessington World of Adventures recently reopened its gates following the easing of lockdown and on Saturday played host to a number of celebrities including Kate Thornton, who enjoyed a day out with her son Ben.

Presenter Kate, 48, beamed from ear to ear as she posed alongside Ben and a family friend, and looked typically stylish as she teamed a baker boy hat with an all-black outfit.

Also stepping out on Saturday was Blue's Antony Costa, who looked dapper in a leather jacket, jeans and a black zip-up hoodie.

Also eager to try out the park's newest ride offerings were Claire Sweeney, Mark Rhodes, Jasmine Harman and Chris and Charlotte Coleman.

Kate no doubt enjoyed spending some quality time with Ben, as in November, she said she was 'grieving' her son growing up.

The presenter shares with son Ben, 12, with ex-husband Darren Emerson, and told Entertainment Daily that it really hit her in lockdown that her child was no longer a baby.

Doting parents: Chris and Charlotte Coleman treated their children to a fun day out

'I love being his mum. He's 12 going on 13 and he's pulling away now. He's independent,' she said. 'We were together 24/7 [in lockdown] so we had time to walk down our memory lane and it was so emotional.

'It kind of kicked off a grief of I'm never going to have him as a baby again.'

She also explained how she regulates what Ben is exposed to on social media.

She said: 'It's such a complicated world that I try my best to help him manage it without being overbearing. But that digital world they live in of constant commentary, that worries me so much.'

Kate announced she had separated from Darren in 2011.
