Jools Oliver has treated fans to a behind-the-scenes look at her wedding to celebrate her and husband Jamie's 20th anniversary on Wednesday (24 June).

The clip she shared on Instagram includes amazing footage from the couple's church wedding ceremony, reception and even their first dance as husband and wife.

In the accompanying caption, Jools wrote: "20 years married today!!"

She also revealed that the couple had been due to renew their vows, although the event was sadly cancelled because of the current coronavirus pandemic.

"20 exciting, happy, fun wonderful years married to my best friend," she continued. "We were due to renew our wedding vowels this summer but that can wait! 20 years married but together 27 years, my first true love."

She added: "Yes, I drive you bonkers and you probably deserve a medal etc... But being with you feels like home (and you know much I love to be at home)!!! I treasure the daily texts you send, you are romantic and constantly positive, funny and a dedicated brilliant dad."

Jools' sweet tribute continued: "We have created five wonderful children and lost our five little stars in the sky. Thank you for loving me the way you do. We did it, on to the next chapter."

The 45-year-old then revealed that the wedding video clip had been "cobbled together" from home videos.

"Was devastated to have lost out real wedding video in one of our house moves so this is cobbled together from home videos," she said. "Truly the happiest day with the most wonderful memories. Still 20 years later my dance moves need updating. Better sort that out for our next wedding."

The happy couple tied the knot exactly two decades ago, on 24 June, 2000, and now share five children together – Poppy, 18, Daisy, 17, Petal, 11, Buddy, nine, and River, three.

Happy anniversary, Jools and Jamie!
