The 31-year-old TV presenter revealed she had been playing in the garden with her youngest son Rex, thinking that her other two sons Zachary, 12, and Leighton, eight, were still doing home-schooling indoors.

Solomon said in an Instagram Stories video: "Would someone out there please tell me you also forgot your kids?

"At least I didn't forget to bring them in, one out of two's not bad.

"What is wrong with my brain?"

Children returned to schools on Monday after they were closed in January due to the government's national coronavirus lockdown.
