    Recalling when the pair first took their vows, she said: ‘Our first dance was to Dusty Springfield’s I Only Want To Be With You, but Jamie doesn’t like dancing, so I threw him off. I was in my element!’

    Before the couple take their vows for the second time, they plan to take a romantic trip to Cornwall,

    Jools continued: ‘Everyone looks shattered and we all need a break.
