Tess Daly left ‘blushing’ as husband Vernon Kay finds out her ‘unexpected’ secret crush | Celebrity News | Showbiz & TV
Vernon Kay, 46, and Tess Daly, 52, will return to our screens together for the first time in 14 years on his new game show Game of Talents, which is set to replace the slot left by Saturday Night Takeaway beginning this weekend. Tess appears in the first episode and speaking ahead of the program’s debut on ITV, Vernon admitted he learns a few new and “unexpected” truths about his beloved on-air, including her secret crush.
In a recent interview, the I’m A Celebrity star said of their time side by side: “You’d be surprised!
“We did have a little bit of banter.”
The couple, who share two daughters, Phoebe, 16, and 11-year-old Amber together, last worked with each other on telly during the run of singing contest Just the Two of Us back in 2007, which was cancelled after just one series.
And while that was a battle of voices, his new show is a battle of wit, as celebrities are paired with members of the public as they try to work out their hidden talents in order to win a big money prize.

Of course, Tess doesn’t let him get away lightly as the husband and wife duo’s “banter” plays out on-air.
“Tess does throw me under the bus a couple of times,” Vernon admitted, giggling.
“We get to find out who her big crush is, which was unexpected and caused her to blush a few times!”
But the Strictly host was more reserved when it came to talking about her experience on the show, simply revealing it was “great” to be able to work with her hubby once again.
Of his star-studded guests, Vernon continued to tell The Sun: “We’ve got such a brilliant line-up of celebrity guests coming on the show, there’s some viewers favourites from the world of TV and entertainment.
“And of course it’s brilliant to have my lovely wife Tess taking part in one of the shows.
“I can’t wait to see the celeb and contestant teams go head-to-head and for the viewers to see what a special show we’ve cooked up.”
Being able to work closely with each other again came as a blessing, following this stint on ITV’s subdued jungle show last year made Tess realise she “really does need” him around.
