Splash! Tess Daly tells hubby and show host Vernon Kay, “Stop wearing embarrassing shorts!”
Strictly Come Dancing host Tess Daly has apparently begged her husband, Splash! presenter Vernon Kay, to stop wearing shorts, which she’s branded as, “Embarrassing.”
The Sunday People reports that Tess made her appeal to Vernon after he was “ridiculed” on Twitter for his outfits.
She said, “I was so embarrassed when I saw Vernon in those shorts.
“I was like: ‘Eurgh, they’ve just got to go, you’re not wearing those again.’ I knew people would laugh at him.”
The paper adds, “Vernon, 38, ditched the Bermudas for full-length trousers for the third heat of the Tom Daley diving show last week, which was won by Olympic boxer Anthony Ogogo.”
Tess added, “I told him that I’m his wife and he should wear trousers instead. So he changed his look and hopefully won’t go back to shorts again.”
But it seems that Tess and Vernon’s kids don’t care what their dad wears and just love watching Splash!
Tess explained, “We watch it at home and the kids love it. They get chairs and a little rug and pretend to dive in front of the TV. It’s hilarious.”
Tess and Vernon have of course managed to weather the storm of scandal surrounding Vernon’s alleged ‘sexting’ affair with model and former Celebrity Big Brother housemate, Rhian Sugden, and happily, it seems Tess and Vernon are closer than ever.
Tess said, “We’re a normal family really, I’m having a bit of a rest at the moment after Strictly finishing so that I can be a normal mum.
“Vernon and I take it in turns to do the school run and that is what we love doing most.”
Aww bless. Here’s a reminder of Vernon on Splash!
