They taught their specialist subject, gardening, at 10.05am.

In the summer Zoe also showed off her husband’s gardening efforts as they harvested a host of home-grown fruit and vegetables.

Love the celebrity supply teacher spot!

Zoe has said: “There’s a lot to be said about mental health and having your hands in the soil – that’s a big one for me.

“For Jeff, it’s the health benefits of eating what we’ve grown.”

Zoe said the couple have also passed their love of gardening onto kids Stan and Violet.

Emmerdale fans and their kids may have watched Jeff and Zoe’s gardening handiwork on their Celebrity Supply Teacher episode over the summer.

This week’s episode is a repeat of that 10-minute show, but if you ask us it certainly beats burying your nose in a textbook!
