As is often the case these days, our dear friends – the This Morning wedding couple – didn’t have a gift list and so we gifted them cash instead. But, I couldn’t resist giving Annie and Gareth, the new Mr and Mrs Lewis, a keepsake from one of my favourite suppliers.
Annie & Wilfproduce the most beautiful, personalised, pretty, handmade textile items. So, I couldn’t go along to a wedding without a bespoke fabric heart featuring the couple’s names and wedding date, with matching handmade card.
I hope it will take pride of place in the couple’s family home and remind them of their incredible wedding day aboard the HQS Wellington on the Thames, with the likes of Philip Schofield, Holly Willoughby, Gok, Alison Hammond, Rylan Clark, Phil Vickery, Eric Lanlard and Peter Andre – and Mr Robertson and I – as guests!
Do you ever watch those mind-blowing experiences on TV and wonder what it would feel like to be chosen to take part?

When I spotted ITV’s This Morning was looking to throw a wedding this spring, I knew the exact people who should put themselves forward. My good friend Annie is, thankfully, just coming out the other side of a hellish year, having discovered a lump in her breast while watching a feature on This Morning this time last year urging women to check themselves.
During her 12 months of treatment, losing her hair, feeling poorly and terrified, one thing that kept playing on her mind was maybe never getting the chance to marry her man, Gareth. They had already got engaged, but finances and then Annie’s illness meant any solid plans to become man and wife had to go on the backburner indefinitely.
And then came This Morning Throws A Wedding. » Read more
