Presenter Vernon Kay has revealed how he surprised his wife Tess Daly with a vow renewal.
Speaking on tonight's episode of I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here!, Vernon says he sprung the romantic surprise on his Strictly Come Dancing presenter.
The event came after Vernon admitted to having shared sexual texts with model Rhian Sugden in 2010 and subsequently apologised to Tess.
In Saturday night's episode, Giovanna Fletcher discussed weddings with Vernon and former EastEnders star Jessica Plummer.
When asked about whether he had renewed his vows with wife Tess, Vernon said: "We have done, we did it in France, about five years ago."

He detailed: "I booked a weekend in our favourite hotel in the South of France and I spoke to her (Tess) stylist at the time and I said I needed four dresses."
Giovanna responded: "So Tess did not know anything?"
Vernon answered: "No, she didn't know anything. I said I needed four dresses and I gave her a card and it said congratulations on your second wedding day and I said we're going to renew our vows.
"She said 'I've got nothing to wear' and I said 'you say that…pick one'."

She told Shane Richie: "They talked me into being part of the scene. They really had to talk me into it. It was a massive thing for me to say I'll do it. And then I got cut.
"I was more upset about being cut. I am not Towie enough,"she laughed.
Shane responded: "It happens to all of us. I've done stuff in the past when I thought, hey, I'm in this movie, and I've watched it and I'm not in it and they've cut me."
