Vernon Kay has been entertaining fans on this year’s I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! on ITV. He left viewers swooning following a moment in the washroom with fellow contestant Jordan North, and his wife loved seeing him enjoying himself. Express.co.uk has everything you need to know about when Vernon and Tess got married.
When did Vernon and Tess Daly get married?
Vernon Kay is known for being a TV presenter on some of the most-loved British TV shows, including Family Fortunes and T4.
I’m A Celeb fans have been given some insight into his fruitful career, as he has mentioned making friends with famous faces such as Tom Hanks.
The 46-year-old may have met a whole host of celebrities over the years, but he only has eyes for one TV star – his wife Tess.
The presenter has been married to the Strictly Come Dancing host for 17 years, with the pair tying the knot back in 2003.
Vernon and Tess were married at the St Mary’s Roman Catholic Church in Bolton, and they have two daughters together.
The couple met when Vernon was a presenter on T4, back in 2001, and they were instantly hooked on each other.
Tess was previously heard saying the pair always had fun together, and the connection between them came easily.
A couple of years after they got together, the couple knew they wanted to take the next step, and they officially tied the knot, hosting their reception at Rivington Hall Barn.
They are known to have had their ups and downs like any other married couple, but lockdown has definitely brought the pair even closer.
That was until Vernon entered the Welsh castle for this years I’m A Celebrity, and he is definitely missing his wife and children.
Tess shared a video of her husband waving to their daughters, Amber and Phoebe, during an I’m A Celebrity challenge, and she said: “Loved Vernon waving hello to Phoebe & Amber tonight! So sweet they loved it! Nice to see the novelty of live TV hasn’t worn off for @vernonkay.”
She also shared a photo of herself and her husband from a previous holiday, which was taken around the same time that they got married. She said: “So proud of Vernon in his first trial last night on @imacelebrity, he aced it!!
“No idea how he managed to clear his plate though! Missed him today and looking through old photos found this from a trip to Ibiza probably about 17 years ago…He’s still got the same hair! GOOD LUCK TONIGHT @vernonkay #teamvernon #imaceleb.”
Tess had been watching from home when her husband took part in the notorious eating challenge on I’m A Celebrity, alongside his fellow contestants Jordan North and Beverley Callard.

Tess has clearly been missing her husband while he is in Wales, and she has shown her support for him even before the series started.
She wished him luck and said although she had not seen him for a long time, she could not wait to watch him and find out how he fares in the Welsh castle.
Fans of the couple will remember their wedding day on September 12, 2003, for which Vernon wore a bold white suit.
To get between their two venues, they hopped aboard a vintage VW camper van, and Tess stole the show in her stunning crystal-embellished gown.
Their wedding guests included Brian Dowling, a former winner of Big Brother, and one of Vernon’s T4 co-stars, June Sarpong.
Vernon has previously been heard saying he had felt over the moon about his wedding, and the couple were glad they had kept things on the down-low.
In 2017 the couple revealed how marriage is a work in progress, but they have since found out how close they are as a family, particularly during lockdown.
The couple live in Buckinghamshire with their daughters, but for now, Vernon has been adapting to a new way of life with his fellow campmates in the Welsh castle.
Vernon is on Instagram and while he is away, Tess has shared a photo of a Cosmopolitan Magazine cover from back in 2007, which had the headline “Tess & Vern, our red-hot rules of love and lust”.
Fans commented on the photo, calling the pair a “beautiful couple”. Ahead of the start of the latest season of Strictly Come Dancing, Vernon shared a photo of the pair as he wished his wife luck.
