Teaming a pink fleece top with baggy orange bottoms, the bubbly brunette rounded out her look with a black quilted coat and a pair of hiking shoes.
Going makeup-free for the outing, her chestnut brown locks were worn loose as she returned home from the adventure with her family.
Carrying the couple’s youngest son in his arms, doting dad Tom, 35, also donned a black coat, which he teamed with mud-splattered claret red tracksuit bottoms.

Their outing came a day after Giovanna took to Instagram to share heart-warming snaps of herself returning home to her family after a month in North Wales.
The author could be seen cradling her youngest son in her arms as Buzz and Buddy jumped with joy around her, before they too came in for a cuddle.
In a lengthy caption, Giovanna told her followers: ‘Mumma Gi here and I’m thrilled to say I’m home with my boys and Tom and soaking up all the kisses and cuddles I’ve missed.
‘They’ve been extremely excited to talk to me about all the trials, wear my crown (they think they’re now Princes and that we’re moving into the castle), and then make me watch their new favourite show… @imacelebrity

Back together again: As well as a return home to her children, Giovanna has also been reunited with her husband Tom after several weeks apart
‘Three weeks ago I walked into a Welsh castle and straight into the arms of 11 wonderful humans for what felt like the most uplifting, hilarious and emotional camping trip of all time.
‘Stepping out of your comfort zone can be a scary but amazing thing, and I’m so glad I took on this adventure alongside the incredible @jessicakate_plummer @vicderbyshire @beverleycallard @ruthiehenshallofficial @holliearnold8 @vernonkay @jordannorth1 @theshanerichie @aj11ace @gomofarah @officialrussellwatson…
‘It’s been a whirlwind 24hours and I can’t thank everyone enough for all the support – whether you’ve watched along and laughed (and cried) with us, commented or voted. It’s been a total blast.
‘Huge love to @antanddec for being complete and utter legends – even when making me eat a bull’s penis. I also have to give a shout out to EVERY SINGLE person who works on the show – you helped make this so special.’
Ready for an adventure: Tom, 35, donned a black coat, which he teamed with mud-splattered claret red tracksuit bottoms and a pair of hiking shoes
Giovanna concluded her message by saying: ‘And finally… @tomfletcher, I love you so much. Thank you for your endless love and support. Big love, your Queen of the Castle. Xxxx.’
Earlier in the day, Giovanna was able to catch up with her husband Tom soon after the result was announced, as the pair reunited with a phone call.
Taking to Instagram on Saturday, the McFly star revealed they managed to fit in a call close to midnight after her historic victory.
Tom shared a screenshot of their call, showing his wife’s name is saved as Gi wife Fletcher, and captioned his post: ‘First time speaking to my Queen!’
Commenting on the unusual contact name, he added: ‘I know her name in my phone is ridiculous!’
Sweet: On Saturday, I’m A Celebrity winner Giovanna hugged her and husband Tom’s sons Buzz, six, Buddy, four, and Max, two, as she finally returned home
Adorable: The author, 35, could be seen cradling her youngest son in her arms as Buzz and Buddy jumped with joy around her, before they too came in for a cuddle
The proud husband later shared another snap showing their three sons – Buzz, six, Buddy, four, and two-year-old Max – waiting for Giovanna to get home.
All three boys could be seen sitting on a window sill as they looked outside in anticipation of being reunited with their mum after her three-week stint in the camp.
On Saturday’s episode of I’m a Celebrity… The Daily Drop, the author said: ‘Without mums nothing else is possible’, before gushing over how excited she is to cuddle her beloved kids and her McFly star husband Tom.
Giovanna continued: ‘So I feel like I showed that mums can do anything and mostly I hope I made my kids proud. I guess I’ll find that out when I get home.’
Reunited: Earlier in the day, Giovanna reunited with her husband Tom on the phone after being crowned Queen of the Castle on Friday’s show
So proud: Before she got back home, Tom revealed that the couple had managed to chat on the phone just before midnight on Friday
She went on to explain that her victory has still not ‘sunk in’ and ‘does not feel real’, saying that it is the ‘most bizarre thing’ ever.
Speaking via video link on the episode, she continued: ‘No, it hasn’t sunk in. I don’t think it’s going to sink in for a little while. It’s the most bizarre thing ever.
‘We’ve been in a castle for three weeks and now there are people, I’ve got a crown on my head. It doesn’t feel real at all.’
Giovanna is preparing to head home and reunite with her husband Tom and her three sons.
But she quipped that after ‘a few tantrums’ she will be ‘wishing to be back in castle life’, before lovingly gushing that she cannot wait to go back to ‘normality’.
‘My Queen!’ The doting husband shared a screenshot of their phone call adding, ‘first time speaking to my Queen’
Family: It comes after Giovanna said she felt like she has proved mothers are ‘strong’ and can ‘do anything’ after she won I’m A Celebrity 2020 (pictured with her sons and Tom)
The blogger said: ‘Tomorrow back into it all with a bang. Give it a few tantrums and I’ll be wishing to be back in castle life.’
She continued: ‘Soon as I’m home I’m just going to have loads of kisses and cuddles and immerse myself back into reality.
‘And just normality, normal life. It feels weird because we don’t know what’s going on in the world.’
The mother-of-three has predicted that her children will want to play games inspired by I’m A Celebrity’s gruesome trials after watching her on the hit reality TV show.
Speaking about their reaction to her victory, she explained: ‘I can just imagine their little faces now. I imagine the older two have stayed up and watched. They’re not going to believe it.
‘I can already imagine that trials are happening at home. We’re going to be taking inspiration from them and making up games. If they’ve not already. I can imagine snakes being made and all sorts.’
Strong mother: Although still taking in the reality of her win, Giovanna joked she was sure that after ‘a few tantrums’ back at home she will be ‘wishing to be back in castle life
Victory! Friday’s I’m A Celebrity final saw Giovanna crowned the first-ever Queen of the Castle as Jordan North finished as a runner-up and Vernon Kay in third place
