France is particularly special for the couple since it was the destination for their vow renewals. In honour of their tenth wedding anniversary, Vernon surprised Tess with an impromptu ceremony - something he revealed during his stint on l'm A Celebrity in 2020.

During a chat with HELLO! a few months later, Tess opened up about their wedding renewal. "It was unbelievable because we had kept it quiet, and I was like, 'Oh my goodness'" she recalled. "It was brilliant actually because it all came flooding back to me. It was one of the most amazing times of my life."

Sharing more details, Tess added: "The first night [in the south of France] we had a gorgeous dinner and drank champagne, we toasted the sunset and ten years of marriage. The next day we woke up, Vernon surprised me.

"I opened my anniversary card and it said, 'Today we are going to renew our vows.' He said, 'We're just going to renew our vows, I've arranged it. I've found a catholic priest.' I thought the kids were at home and the grandparents were looking after them for the weekend. [But] Vernon had arranged for all of them to fly over."
