Tony Bellew has posted a loving tribute to the most important day of his life on his Instagram, with a carousel of pictures celebrating his wife.

The I’m A Celebrity star posted a series of pictures commemorating his and his wife Rachel’s wedding anniversary, including several snaps from their wedding, a throwback photo of Rachel, pictures of them and their four sons, and a funny video of the two of them at home doing chores.

He captioned the images: “I’ve been through everything with this girl and couldn’t have done or achieved anything without her! The day we came together was the most important day of my life. I love ya more than you know @rachel_bellew, oh and I’m looking forward to play golf twice this week luv…”

Fans of the Creed star were quick to congratulate the beautiful couple on their anniversary, as many commented their well wishes.

One said: “A good example of when you pick the right partner, everything is possible. Happy anniversary you two.” Another said: “Beautiful pictures, happy anniversary to you both.” Even Peter Fury, the uncle of heavyweight icon Tyson Fury, commented: “The best that life can offer us. You’re really blessed.”

The 41-year-old made his boxing debut in 2007, and rose his way through the boxing world. He became the British and Commonwealth light-heavyweight champion in 2010. By the time he retired he was worth as much as £15 million. His final fight was against Ukrainian boxer Oleksandr Usyk, and reportedly earned Tony around £4 million for the match.

This was his last match, as he decided to end his illustrious career to spend more time with his wife, Rachel, who he clearly lavishes praise upon as his supporters can see from his Instagram. He also felt like the sport was taking a toll on his body.

In an interview with GQ he said: " My body can't take anymore. I will get out and enjoy the rest of my days." If his recent post is anything to go by, he is certainly enjoying retirement out on the golf course.

After formally retiring from boxing in 2018, Tony could not stay away from the ring for long, and was cast to star as fictional boxer Ricky Conlan in the Creed series. Before his most famous reality TV role, as the runner up to Made In Chelsea ’s Sam Thompson in the I’m a Celeb Jungle, Tony also starred in SAS: Who Dares Wins and A League of Their Own, so he was no stranger to reality TV by the time he stepped up to the I’m A Celeb cast.
