Halloween is a huge event for the showbiz world, especially for Jonathan Ross, who decorates his £2.5 million London house with spectacular decorations and invites nearly every single UK celebrity on our screens.

However, he insists this is the only showbiz event he likes to host, telling Loose Women, "The main reason I do the Halloween party is because my kids love it.

"It started as a thing for my kids when they were little and it grew and became slightly more grown up when they became grown ups.

"I don't really mind who comes because my kids have 20 to 30 people they invite each and that's the party and other people [who turn up] are people who come up to me and say 'Please can I come to your party?'"

After a year out due to COVID we thought Rossy's party might be back on for 2021, but it turns out the panel show host has scrapped the party once more 😔. Maybe 2022, eh?
