TV presenter Ulrika Jonsson as put the “stresses and pressures” of the last few years to one side to renew her marriage vows on a Barbados beach.
The former weathergirl, who won Celebrity Big Brother in 2009, said the ceremony with third husband Brian Monet was a chance “to do something special” after several years struggling with a chronic back condition that had taken her “down the lonely road of depression”.
She told Hello!: “Hard times either force you apart or bring you closer together.
“The stresses and pressures we have experienced over the past couple of years, I am thrilled to say, have made us stronger.”
The couple were joined at the ceremony by their son Malcolm, three, and Ulrika’s daughters, Martha and Bo, from previous relationships.
She paid tribute to Brian who she said was “more than just my husband”.
She said: “He is a jaw-droppingly brilliant father who has the same values of parenthood as I do.
“His patience knows no bounds; his love for our children is unconditional and their love for him completes our family entirely.”
