Yesterday marked Hillary Barry's 50th birthday!

Taking to Instagram, the much-loved Seven Sharp presenter shared a picture of the present she received from her husband - and it's probably not what you're expecting.

Mr. Barry's gift of choice was a black and pink snorkel.

Alongside a photo of her wearing the gift, she wrote: "I turned 50 today and this was my gift from Mr B."

"He likes to go all out for significant birthdays. For my 40th he gave me a wheelbarrow.
