Vernon Kay previously revealed how he thanks his lucky stars for wife Tess Daly and also revealed how he keeps his marriage on the right track.

The TV star, who is hosting The One Show tonight (July 9), has been married to his wife for two decades.

Like most couples, the pair have had their ups and downs, but they have stuck together through thick and thin.

In 2022, Vernon opened up about their life together. And he revealed that there’s a very simple reason that they have managed to remain happily together for such a long period of time. It turns out communication is the key!

“There’s no secret. No kind of golden highway. The key is – and I know this sounds really lame – keep talking,” he told The Mirror. “Communication is the key to everything.”

Tess is the boss. I say jokingly. We all know our role in the family. It just works perfectly.”

The star, who has presented This Morning, also went on to joke that Tess is the one that wears the trousers in the relationship.

Meanwhile, Vernon’s wife, Tess, was a pillar of support for the star during his Children In Need challenge. Vernon raised millions for Children In Need with his 115-mile Ultra UltraMarathon Challenge last year.

Sadly she couldn’t meet him at the finish line due to her Strictly commitments. However, she was on hand with a supportive FaceTime.

See, communication really is key!

Catch Vernon on The One Show on July 9 from 7pm on BBC One.
