Jamie and Jools Oliver are celebrating their 19th wedding anniversary.
The chef, who shares five kids with Jools, took a trip down memory lane as he gushed over the pair’s wedding day and praised her parenting skills.
“I can’t believe it’s 19 years already ?! time has just flown by. My wedding day was one of the best days of my life, we kept it private and surrounded ourselves by loving friends and family and what a joy it was ….. Jools thanks for being the best friend a wonderful wife and truly amazing mother to our Oliver clan.”
He added, “Without question you’ve been the back bone behind anything good I’ve ever done, what a journey we’ve had. Big love Jamie.”
Pal Davina McCall wrote, “Happy anniversary to both of you,” while model Helena Christensen posted, “The prettiest loveliest wife.”
Jools also shared a loving tribute to her husband of almost two decades, writing: “Happy 19 years married to my absolute favourite xxx.”
Jamie, 44, and Jools met when the Mothercare designer was just 17.
They wed in 2000 and share children Petal Blossom, Poppy Honey, Daisy Boo, Buddy Bear and River Rocket.
The milestone occasion comes just a number of weeks after Jamie’s famous restaurants were forced to file for administration.
His selection of chain eateries – including Jamie’s Italian – has run up hundreds of millions of pounds of debt.
A statement from Jamie at the time said, “I am deeply saddened by this outcome and would like to thank all of the staff and our suppliers who have put their hearts and souls into this business for over a decade,
“I appreciate how difficult this is for everyone affected. I would also like to thank all the customers who have enjoyed and supported us over the last decade, it’s been a real pleasure serving you.”
Back in 2017, the chef revealed his restaurants were on the brink of collapse, saying they had “simply run out of cash|.
The unfortunate difficulties meant that Jamie – who has a net worth of £240 million – was forced to plug £12.7 million of his own money into the business to save it from administration.
