The Great Lovers Series: Jamie and Jools Oliver

As the celebrity chef and his wife of two decades reveal that they're renewing their vows, we look back on their remarkable journey in love together.


THEY WERE CHILDHOOD SWEETHEARTS

Jamie Oliver and Juliette Norton (better known as Jools) met when they were just 17. When they'd been together only a short time, Jools spent a few months in Tokyo, during which Jamie wrote and faxed her every single day. She still has the letters from that time.


IF THERE WAS ONE THING JAMIE WISHES HIS WIFE WOULD STOP DOING, IT'S THIS...

In 2018, following 18 years of marriage and five (yes FIVE) children, Jamie shared this heartfelt message to Jools on his social media account: "Today I am so proud to celebrate my 18 wedding anniversary with this amazing woman!! Thank you so much @joolsoliver for being my soul mate on this most bonkers roller coaster ride called life, what a journey it’s been so far. Thank you for being by my side, thank you for seeing things I never see, thank you loving me, for being the best wife & most fantastic mother of our 5 precious children....I LOVE YOU SO MUCH...." Jamie then joked: "Now stop watching love island and come find me in the garden waiting to give you your anniversary pressie....hurry up!!! Love Jamie ox x x x x." Nice one Jamie, we kind of agree on the Love Island front ;-)

 


JAMIE HAD AN AFFAIR WITH A COURGETTE...

They've been married for nearly two decades, making Jamie and Jools Oliver one hell of an unusual pairing in celebrity terms. But it hasn't always been plain sailing. While Jamie was writing one of this 20+ recipe books, the stress of a looming publishing deadline saw him regularly disappearing off to his vegetable patch in search of inspiration. And when he came home to a suspicious wife questioning the green patches on his knees, the celebrity chef had to admit that he'd been having a deep and meaningful with a root vegetable. Much to Jools' relief.  


THERE'S NO DENYING WHO WEARS THE TROUSERS

Jamie always wanted two children. They currently have five and the couple is currently keeping stum in the face of rumours that Jools is expecting baby number six. Speaking to Good Housekeeping, Jamie said: "I honestly thought I would have two children. Jools probably would like another child. I think we are done, but you never know with Jools, she has a very powerful magic spell that can grow on you." Good luck Jamie!
