What have Tess Daly and Vernon Kay said about their wedding?

Vernon said he was "over the moon" at his wedding, after the couple opted to shun a high profile celebrity wedding for something a little more low-key. The couple’s marriage has come under scrutiny on a couple of occasions in recent years, and both Tess and Vernon have admitted that marriage isn’t all plain sailing, after Vernon confessed to texting glamour model Rhian Sugden in 2010 and again in 2015. "Marriage is a work in progress. Vernon and I are just people, at the end of the day," Tess told The Times in 2017.
