The singer, who shares children Nancy, 17, and Arthur, 13, with her husband Sam Amidon, munched on a toastie in a countryside selfie.

Beth and her family are now back in the UK, having lived across the pond until 2015 when they returned to London.

In her caption, she wrote: “This piccy got lots of love in my stories so I thought I’d post here too.

“Mainly I want to mark the occasion to say we might look like a bunch of primary coloured plonkers sitting in the pouring rain having a picnic – and you’d be right!

“But I for one don’t get out much and we haven’t been together for a month and in a couple of days we won’t be together for another month, so making the most.

“I love these people and that bloody dog more than I know to write on instas. So yeah… that’s all really.

“Except to say too that these last few months it has felt hard to know how to celebrate amid unending genocidal atrocities in the world… yet within it all I have also come to realise that because of and not in spite of, any chance I get, rituals and expressions of gratitude must be celebrated and held and savoured and not a drop wasted nor taken for granted, come rain or come shine or a stack of bank holidays all backed up like a traffic jam of endless time.”

Beth was born in Dereham, Norfolk, and moved to Dalston, East London, at fourteen.

Her father, a public relations consultant, left when she was eleven, and she lived with her journalist mother and two brothers until her mother’s death from cancer in 1989.

Orton studied A-levels at City College Norwich and later worked various jobs in London.

She briefly pursued acting, studying at the Anna Scher Theatre School and touring with a theater company. Orton’s music career began with collaborations with William Orbit, resulting in the album Superpinkymandy.

She provided vocals for several tracks with The Chemical Brothers and released her debut LP, Trailer Park, in 1996.

This album earned her critical acclaim and nominations for BRIT Awards and the Mercury Music Prize.

Her follow-up albums, Central Reservation and Daybreaker, continued her success, with Central Reservation earning another Mercury Prize nomination and a BRIT Award.

Orton’s later works include Comfort of Strangers, Sugaring Season, and Kidsticks, each marking distinct phases in her musical evolution. Sugaring Season was particularly well-received, noted for its return to acoustic roots.

Kidsticks saw a shift to electronic music and was produced with Andrew Hung.

Orton’s consistent band lineup changed over the years, and she has participated in various collaborative projects and tributes.

She ventured into acting with roles in the films Southlander and Light Years.
