During an appearance on Tuesday's Lorraine, the musician opened up about why the couple decided to renew their wedding vows. "The day after we got married, Emma said to me, she was devastated that the wedding was over because she had planned it for such a long time," he explained to guest host Christine Lampard. "She was really upset and she said, 'We are coming back here in ten years and we are doing it all again!' I was, 'Alright, fine'."

He added: "I put it to the back of my mind. Every year she was 'Nine years left, eight years left' and then she was like, 'Party time!' and I was like, 'Oh we are doing this?' It was really fun. Stephen Mulhern did the ceremony. It felt like a roasting. I stood there and had the mickey taken out of me for 20 minutes. It was an amazing day." The celebrations, which took place at Rushton Hall, in Northamptonshire where the couple first tied the knot ten years ago, was attended by the likes of Rochelle Humes and her husband Marvin as well as Tom and Giovanna Fletcher. McFly also performed at the wedding reception for the first time in two years.
