For their ten years of marriageVernon surprised Tess with an impromptu vow renewal ceremony in France – something he revealed during his appearance on I Am A Celebrity.

The couple renewed their vows in France

During a conversation with HI!, Tess said: “It was amazing because we had been silent, and I was like, ‘Oh my God,'” she recalled. “It was awesome actually because it all came back to me. It was one of the most amazing times of my life.”

She added: “The first night [in the south of France] we had a wonderful 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 birthday card and it said, ‘Today we’re going to renew our vows.’ He said, “We’re just going to renew our vows, I’ve arranged it. I found a Catholic priest.” I thought the kids were home and the grandparents were taking care of them over the weekend. [But] Vernon had arranged for them all to fly over.”
