The couple, who married in 2000 before Jamie found his immense fame as a celebrity chef, are due to celebrate two decades of marriage in 2020 and the TV chef has revealed his wife is keen to walk down the aisle once more. ‘Jools wants to get married again,’ he told Event magazine. ‘We’ll do it completely differently. It sounds a bit cheesy, but 20 is an amazing milestone. It’s nice to have an excuse to get people together.’ Jamie and Jools have five children together (Picture: GC Images) A nice celebration following some tough months which saw his restaurants on the brink of bust, intruders break into their home, and controversy say hello when he released ‘jerk rice’, he added: ‘The past 18 months have been challenging.’ One to celebrate the good times, earlier this year on their 18th wedding anniversary Jamie paid tribute to Jools with a sweet Instagram post. ‘Today I am so proud to celebrate my 18 wedding anniversary with this amazing woman!! Thank you so much @joolsoliver for being my soul mate on this most bonkers roller coaster ride called life, what a journey it’s been so far,’ he wrote on Instagram. ‘Thank you for being by my side, thank you for seeing things I never see, thank you loving me, for being the best wife & most fantastic mother of our 5 precious children….I LOVE YOU SO MUCH….now stop watching love island and come find me in the garden waiting to give you your anniversary pressie….hurry up!!!
