And though there won’t be any major switch-on events this year due to Covid, the couple has stepped out to get into the festive spirit.

Light-up snowmen and saints can be seen in front of the house, while a row of glowing Christmas trees welcome guests.

The display also heavily featured stars, bells and jingle balls, which Helen and John briefly lit for the initial test switch-on.

Helen said: “Not all of them are ready but we have started and it is definitely a work in progress.

“Like last year, we’ll turn them on when we think we’re ready – it’ll probably be mid-November.”

Their 2020 performance raised £12,895.57 – more than double last year’s total – for three charities close to the couple’s hearts.

The money was divided between three charities that have helped his grandchildren: Children’s Hospice of East Anglia, Great Ormond Street Hospital and Dreamflight, which each year take a group of children to Disneyland.

It is expected that this year’s festive period will be more relaxed than last year’s, when Christmas light switch-on was canceled across the country.

A father was threatened last year by police with a coronavirus fine of £10,000 – for decorating his home with festive lights.

This came when large gatherings were banned during the winter, with families only being able to form a Christmas bubble between three households from 23 to 27 December.

Boris Johnson said this week: “I think Christmas this year will be much better than last year.”
