Thanking everyone for their well-wishes, Gary remarked: "We had a lovely night. Thank you for all your kind messages [heart emoji]."

On his Instagram Stories, the 50-year-old uploaded a series of precious throwback snaps with his beloved – something he can only do sparingly.

"This is the only day I can get away with posting pictures of Mrs B," he joked alongside one.
