Vernon Kay: I’m A Celebrity star eager to work with Tess Daly for first time in 13 years

I'm a Celeb: Vernon Kay says Giovanna Fletcher 'deserved' to win

TV presenter Vernon Kay would love to work with his Strictly star wife Tess Daly again. The couple, who tied the knot in 2003, have not worked alongside each other for 13 years.

The I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! finalist spoke about fronting a TV show with his wife following his three-week stint on the ITV show.

”I love working with Tess. She is one of the most dedicated presenters I’ve ever worked with,” Vernon said of his wife.

“If we were to work together it would be an absolute dream,” he told the Daily Star Sunday.

Tess and Vernon joined forces back in 2006 to present Just The Two Of Us, a BBC singing contest.

The reality show ran for just two seasons and was cancelled in 2007.

Vernon, 46, is best known for hosting ITV game show Family Fortunes, after kicking off his career on Channel 4’s T4.

He fronted the show for just over a decade from 2006 to 2015.

The programme returned to TV screens this summer and is now hosted by chef Gino D’Acampo.

The father-of-two also presented The Whole 19 Years for one series and Splash with Gabby Logan for two seasons.

He is currently fronting Formula E coverage for Channel 5 and for YouTube.

Over the last 16 years, his wife Tess has been a regular fixture on TV screens and hosts Strictly Come Dancing in the autumn.

Until this year, the 51-year-old also co-presented Children In Need for just over a decade before passing “the presenting baton” over.

If the pair were to land a show together, they would certainly not be the first married couple to do it.

Ruth Langsford and Eamonn Holmes regularly host This Morning side-by-side and Marvin and Rochelle Humes present The Hit List together.

At the weekend, Tess told fans it was “so good” to have her husband home after five weeks apart.

She also revealed she was making extra meals for her husband, who lost 30lb while in the I’m A Celebrity Castle in Wales.

“Chicken soup at bedtime… feeding him up,” she wrote on Instagram last night, in view of her 697,000 followers.

The couple were apart for five weeks in total, as the contestants had to isolate for two weeks before entering the castle.

Vernon will no doubt be looking forward to a food-filled Christmas with his family after vowing to make his daughters proud on the popular show.

Tess and Vernon share two daughters together Phoebe, 16, and Amber 11.
