Chessington World of Adventures recently reopened its gates after the lockdown eased and hosted a number of celebrities on Saturday, including Kate Thornton, who enjoyed a day out with her son Ben.

Presenter Kate, 48, beamed from ear to ear as she posed next to Ben and a family friend, and looked typically classy when she paired a baker’s boy hat with an all-black outfit.

Also on Saturday, Antony Costa of Blue stepped out, looking dapper in a leather jacket, jeans and a black zip-up hoodie.

Also, Claire Sweeney, Mark Rhodes, Jasmine Harman, and Chris and Charlotte Coleman were eager to try out the park’s latest ride offering.

Kate no doubt enjoyed spending some quality time with Ben because in November she said she was ‘mourning’ her son growing up.

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

‘I love to be his mother. He’s 12 going 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 our memory lane and it was so emotional.

“It was starting to feel a little sad that I’ll never have him as a baby again.”

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

She said, “It’s such a complicated world that I try my best to help it cope without being overbearing. But the digital world in which they constantly provide commentary worries me so much. ‘

Kate announced she divorced Darren in 2011.
