She told Digital Spy in 2013: “It was all quite immediate, really, Because we instantly had such a blast together.
“I couldn’t imagine having more fun with anyone else. It was pretty explosive, I tell you.”

Tess has previously opened up on her marriage during an interview with The Times.
She told the publication in 2017: “All marriages have their moments. It would be unrealistic to say they don’t.

Tess was pregnant with Phoebe in the first series of Strictly Come Dancing.
Talking of being pregnant while on the series she told You Magazine in 2018: “My eldest daughter turns 14 this year too.
“I was pregnant with her on the first series and now she is this beautiful young lady who I have to lift my arm over because she’s grown so tall.”
She later spoke of her and Vernon’s approach to parenting.
Tess added: “Children bring so much joy, and it’s a journey that you go on together.
“Celebrating all their firsts. Your daughter fighting for her ears to be pierced, and you disagreeing, then finally agreeing, about when she can have them done.
“There are so many highs to celebrate; it’s the good times that keep you together.”
