Tess Daly and Vernon Kay will reach a major relationship milestone later this year as they mark their 20th wedding anniversary, and naturally with such a big moment, Tess has some nerves about making sure it's one to remember.

In a Q+A session with fans on her Instagram, ahead of the release of her new wellness book, the star was asked about her relationship with her husband. "20 years we've been married this year," she explained. "We celebrate our 20th anniversary in September, what am I going to get him?"

The Strictly Come Dancing presenter also shared a sweet insight into their relationship, saying: "We still sit down for dinner and have so much to talk about, we still have a real laugh.

"I see when his name comes up on his phone, I'm like 'yay'. We have a good laugh, he's always messing about, dancing and singing in the kitchen. Never a dull moment."

Tess and Vernon started dating in 2001 when he was a host on T4 and they got married on 12 September 2003 at St Mary’s Church in Horwich, Vernon’s hometown, before hosting their reception at nearby Rivington Hall Barn. They are now doting parents to two daughters, Phoebe and Amber.

For their ten-year wedding anniversary, Vernon surprised Tess with an impromptu vow renewal ceremony in France - something he revealed during his stint on l'm A Celebrity.
