"We had to choose one person each," explained Beverley. "None of us chose ourselves… I chose Vernon. I love you Vernon and I was thinking about Tess and your girls and I just thought he deserves it."
Completely surprised, Vernon replied: "Bev, thank you." To which, Beverley remarked: "You're crying." However, Vernon joked: "I'm not crying" as he wiped away tears from his eyes.
Watching the heartfelt moment unfold, Strictly Come Dancing host Tess wrote: "This made me well up [crying emoji] so sweet of @beverleycallard."
Vernon has been married to the Strictly host since 2003
Tess and Vernon married in 2003 and later renewed their vows in France five years ago. Vernon recently told his fellow Castle-dwellers about how he secretly masterminded their vow renewal ceremony. He even arranged for Tess' then stylist to create multiple dresses for her so she would have a selection to choose from when the big day was sprung on her.
"So sweet listening to Vern recount the story of surprising me with renewing our vows," Tess later said on social media. "Here’s a picture from that special day @vernonkay @imacelebrity."
