Holly Willoughby, Amy Childs and Michelle Heaton get in the Christmas spirit as Elf On The Shelf returns

CELEBRITY parents Holly Willoughby, Amy Childs and Michelle Heaton proved they were getting into the Christmas spirit as they welcomed the return of Elf On The Shelf.

It's that time of year again when the naughty elves return for some fun drumming up excitement ahead of the big day.

Holly, 40, who's mum to Harry, 12, Belle, 10, and seven-year-old Chester, kept it simple by literally just putting an elf on a shelf.

But the This Morning host's followers were quick to point out that the toy was missing its feet.

One commented: "His lack of feet is really unsettling me 😂😂😂".

Towie star Amy, 31, amused her two little ones by dressing up their elf in a tutu while sat in between their chocolate advent calendars.

The reality favourite is mum to Polly, four, and three-year-old Ritchie.

While singer Michelle's elf was already playing up and was covered in mince pie crumbs.

The 42-year-old explained: "Little bugger!

"Our @elfontheshelf aka Fifi, has flown to us every year on December the 1st since faith was born!

"She watches over us and at night while sleeping reports back to father Christmas on wether it was a naughty or nice day!

"Today fifi is naughty coz she bloody ate mummy’s advent calendar and her mince pie!

"Shame on you fifi!"

Michelle shares daughter Faith, nine, and son AJ, seven, with husband Hugh Hanley.


Former Emmerdale actor Adam Thomas' children – Teddy, six, and two-year-old Elsie-Rose – were welcomed in the morning by their personal elves Chippy and Elvis.

Although putting in the work to keep up the tradition, Adam's wife Caroline grumbled: "And the fun begins… starting with trying to find the buggers in the loft at 11pm."

Taking the activity one step further Essex girl Billie Faiers surprised her children with a pair of life-sized elves.

Billie joined her kids Nelly, seven, and Arthur, four, on the doorstep wearing their Christmas pyjamas to welcome the elves with husband Greg Shepherd.

Elf on the Shelf is a classic holiday tradition where families can buy an elf and “adopt” it all throughout the festive season to watch over their kids.

This often involves children waking up to see what mischief the elves have been up to in their homes.
