Doting wife Jools uploaded this post to mark their special occasion

The lovebirds live in Essex with their five children - Poppy, 19, Daisy Boo, 18, Petal Blossom, 12, Buddy, ten, and four-year-old River.

Jamie, 46, has often spoken out about what has made his marriage go the distance. They had planned to renew their wedding vows on their 20th wedding anniversary last year, however, the coronavirus pandemic prevented their celebratory plans.

The celebrity chef previously told Event magazine: "Jools wants to get married again. We'll do it completely differently. It sounds a bit cheesy, but 20 is an amazing milestone. It's nice to have an excuse to get people together."

Jools, 46, revealed that they wanted to "do things differently" the second time around. "Our wedding was formal but we're so not like that. It'll be a big party. Why the hell not? I think we've done well!" she told Red magazine last July.

Recalling their first nuptials, the doting wife continued: "Our first dance was to Dusty Springfield's I Only Want To Be With You, but Jamie doesn't like dancing so I threw him off. I was in my element!"
