Jamie Oliver to renew vows with wife Jools


Jamie Oliver is set to renew his vows with wife Jools in June.

The 44-year-old celebrity chef has said he plans to "get married again" to his spouse after 20 years of marriage, and the pair - who have five children, Poppy, 17, Daisy, 16, Petal, 10, Buddy, nine, and River, three, together - will throw a small party for around 100 guests to celebrate the occasion.

Jamie said: "Me and my missus are getting married again. I'm going to cook some amazing food, maybe try and get people a little drunk in the night, definitely have a little disco. My wife loves to dance."

The couple aren't worried about inviting their extended family to the bash, and will instead just be surrounded by "the people [they] love the most".

He added: "It's not so much revolved around family structures, or aunties, and uncles, which our wedding was about. It's just about the people who we love the most; our nearest and our dearest. It's an opportunity to get everyone together just to say, 'thanks'."

Jamie and Jools, 45, have decided to renew their vows after reaching an age where they are "just really grateful for happiness", and the decision comes after the chef lost his UK restaurant empire when it entered into administration in May last year.

The star explained: "I think we're at an age where we're just really grateful for just happiness, and health, and just all the things that really, really matter.

"It's not always easy. She probably hates me 40 percent of the time, but 60 percent is pretty good."

Jamie also spoke about their lasting love, which the cook believes is partly down to their ability to let go and not hold grudges.

Speaking to People magazine, he said: "We quite like just cozying - have a nice little meal, a little cuddle up, put the fire on, watch some s**t telly. I normally get one of her feet put on my, you know, like gorillas in the zoo. She's the dominant one, and I'm the lesser. But no, I take pleasure in just trying to spoil her a bit. She still makes me laugh."
