She said: “He came home last night with a bunch of white roses and said, ‘I thought I’d just buy you some flowers.'”

Unfortunately for Matt, the couple’s six-year-old son Ace then let something slip!

Emma, who has just launched her Autumn edit for Next, laughed: “My son came running in saying, ‘I told him to, Mummy!’ He was literally busted.”

Emma and Matt recently marked their ten-year anniversary by renewing their wedding vows at the venue where they tied the knot.

Matt previously told ITV’s This Morning: “The day after we got married, Emma was kind of sad that it was over. She’d been looking forward to it for such a long time and she went to a lot of effort for the wedding day, so she was like, ‘We’re coming back in ten years and we’re going to do it all over again!’

“Then ten years kind of crept up on us, so we went and did it!”

Matt admitted that as the day approached, the couple began to wonder if it was “cheesy” to be doing a vow renewal ceremony.

He said: “To be honest, we kind of felt a bit embarrassed doing it. It was one of those ideas we thought, ‘That will be cool! and when it got to it, we thought, ‘Oh, is this a bit cheesy and awful?’ and felt a bit embarrassed.”

Matt said there were a couple of ways they made light of the situation, such as getting female guests to wear their own wedding dresses.

He added: “To get away from the awkwardness and being serious, we got Stephen Mulhern to do the vows and he just rinsed me for half an hour.”

There was a sweet side to the ceremony as well, with Matt and Emma’s son Ace serving as best man.

“It was the most amazing thing,” said Matt. “He had the ring and kind of fumbled with it a little bit. He was the cutest thing ever! It was a really amazing day.”

Matt and Emma are also parents to daughters Isabelle, nine, and Trixie, two.
