Tom Fletcher and his wife Giovanna have between them penned a good collection of books, however the couple made a rather big faux pas on World Book Day.
Despite both having carved careers as successful authors, McFly star Tom and Gi forgot to send their son Buzz to nursery in a World Book Day costume.
While children up and down the land marked the annual event, Buzz’s classmates were left thinking he didn’t get the memo. WHOOPS!
Confessing to fans what they had done, Tom and Gi posed for a selfie in front of three-year-old Buzz’s book collection at home.
Tom told his Instagram followers: “Two parent authors who managed to forget to dress their own kid up for #worldbookday20. #oops.”
Giovanna, who released her latest book, ‘Happy Mum, Happy Baby’ only last week, also spilled the beans to her fans.
Writing on Facebook, she said: “Two major #parentfails before 9am. 1. Dropping a costume-less Buzz off at nursery not knowing they are also celebrating #worldbookday. This is particularly awful as we both champion literacy in children and are, you know, proper authors and stuff.
“2. Getting back in the car and discovering I had poo all over the sleeve of my jumper. I think that bit might be karma for the above. #badmumday.”
Tom and Giovanna are also parents to Buddy, one.
Never mind, guys, there’s always next year! Best make a note of it in your diary now though…
