Vernon Kay has been married to Strictly Come Dancing host Tess Daly since 2003 and the couple renewed their wedding vows five years ago. In the latest I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! catch-up instalment, Vernon revealed he had surprised his wife with their vow renewal as his campmates praised the romantic gesture.
Giovanna Fletcher opened up on her wedding day to McFly’s Tom Fletcher during a conversation with Vernon and Jessica Plummer.
The author and podcaster presenter then asked Vernon if he’d ever renewed his vows.
Vernon said: “We have done, we did it in France, about five years ago.
“I booked a weekend in our favourite hotel in the South of France and I spoke to her stylist at the time and I said I needed four dresses.”

Giovanna asked: “So Tess did not know anything?”
“No, she didn’t know anything,” Vernon replied. “I said I needed four dresses [to the stylist].
“I gave [Tess] a card and it said congratulations on your second wedding day and I said we’re going to renew our vows.
“She said, ‘I’ve got nothing to wear’ and I said, ‘You say that…pick one.’”
Talking in the Telegraph, Jessica said: “It’s incredible that Vernon arranged in secret the renewal of his vows. It’s like a fairy tale.”
Vernon continued: “We went to reception and her Mum, my parents, the kids and my brother were waiting.
“And she was like, ‘Oh my god’ – we had such a lovely day.”
Talking in the Telegraph, Giovanna said: “Vernon’s story is absolutely romantic and wonderful and thoughtful.
“I mean, Tom, if you’re watching…,” Giovanna teased.

Elsewhere in the episode, the celebrities discussed the worst jobs they’ve ever had.
Giovanna revealed that she used to work in an off-licence.
She revealed: “We used to get people coming in who obviously wanted alcohol for free.
“You know the big crates of beer that are covered in plastic. They’d pick up the ones that were kind of loose, chuck them at you behind the counter and then run off with the rest. Awful people.”
Jordan commented: “Finding out other people’s jobs before they got famous is like revealing actually.”
Vernon added: “I worked in a banana factory sticking stickers on bananas in Bolton, a banana ripening factory.
“I did it until I was 22 before I moved to London. I did it every summer.”
Later, he added: “Some of my jobs sound awful but I loved every single minute of what I did. I made great friends whilst I was sticking stickers on bananas. I nearly blew up the banana factory by the way but that is a different story altogether.”
I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! continues on ITV on Sunday at 9pm.
