Faye Tozer has paid the sweetest tribute to her husband Michael Smith in honour of their ninth wedding anniversary on Wednesday. The couple, who tied the knot in a beautiful winter wedding in 2009, have had a difficult few weeks with the pair trying to cope with the long-distance due to Faye's commitments with Strictly Come Dancing. Sharing a cute picture of the pair, Faye tweeted:" Happy 9th Anniversary Mr Smith @mick_smith_ #teamtozersmith xxx." Her husband also shared a series of images, including one from their wedding day. "Happy 9th Anniversary @Faye_Tozer I love you more than chocolate," he said.

Michael later added: "Nine years ago, right now, I was sitting on the sofa feeling rough, happy, scared, nervous, excited, sick and most of all confused. How could someone like @Faye_Tozer want to marry my dozy ass? Well, I still think it was the best decision she ever made, we rock!" Steps star Faye and her software engineer husband Michael have been together for over a decade, they welcomed their only child, Benjamin Barrington Tozer-Smith, in 2009.

The wedding anniversary comes shortly after the pop star confessed that the BBC show has put a "strain" on her long-term relationship. "It's always tricky being away from home," she told The Sun. "You just have to keep your head above water." She added: "We've just got to keep really tight as a family unit and make sure we communicate - I think that's the only way. But it is tough being away from home because we miss each other." Just last week, the mum-of-one shared a sweet picture of the couple, in which she praised her husband for all his support over the past few months. "A very Happy Birthday to my gorgeous hubby @mick_smith_ who has been the most incredible support and held the fort for the last 3 months!!! Thank you!! You rock baby!! Love you most," she wrote in the caption, to which Michael replied: "Thank you beautiful."
