"Marriage is really hard, you are going to spend a proportion of it not liking your other half and vice versa," he said frankly. "So I think not holding grudges, being able to move on is really important. Just keeping at it."

The couple have been together since they were teenagers

Admitting he doesn't understand Tinder, Jamie confessed one should "choose well" when looking for someone they would want to spend the rest of their lives with. "I just think, try and choose well," he explained.

"Try and not hold grudges. I know this sounds really cheesy but try to be romantic with presents, be really thoughtful with things. As you get older you use up a lot of your old tricks, so you have to try things like cooking a meal."
