They have been enjoying some quality time together after he returned home from his stint on I’m A Celebrity last year.
And Tess Daly looked smitten as she cosied up with husband Vernon Kay for a sweet snap they took during a walk through the forest on Saturday.
The Strictly co-host, 51, and presenter, 46, wrapped their arms around each other as they smiled for a photo that was taken by their daughter Phoebe, before they headed out on their walk with her and their youngest daughter Amber.

Tess kept warm amid the winter weather by wearing a white turtleneck jumper that she shrugged on over denim jeans.
She covered her golden locks with a grey beanie, and wore a light palette of make-up to highlight her natural beauty during the outing.
Vernon, meanwhile, looked dapper in a black pea coat that he teamed with quilted black gloves and a blue hat.
Gushing about their walk, Tess wrote in the caption: ‘Soaking up a bit of Vitamin D with a much needed dose of sunshine on today’s walk it felt good. Thanks Phoebe for the [photo]. Sending love from our family to yours.’

In December, Tess admitted that, along with countless fans, even she was wowed as she watched her husband Vernon unveil his muscular frame during his recent stint on I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!.
Gushing that her husband ‘looks good’, the TV personality has revealed to The Sun that Vernon achieved his impressive physique after several months of pumping iron.
Addressed the fan reaction to her husband’s body, Tess said: ‘It’s hilarious, he’s been working out a lot since March and when Vernon gets into things – he has his passions and obsessions, whether it’s golf, American football, triathlons and now working out – he goes for it. And he looks good! He’s in good shape. The best shape.’

However, self-described ‘feeder’ Tess confessed that while Vernon competed on the show, she spent much time worrying about her husband being hungry – and subsequently losing weight – and he spent weeks in North Wales’ Gwyrch Castle.
She told the publication: ‘I worried if he was cold, too hungry – I’m a feeder by nature, I’m happy when people are eating, so I freaked about him not eating. I could see it in his face that he was losing weight.
‘I heard they were on 700 calories a day, but Vern usually does about 5,000. Ever since the first lockdown he’s been on a mission to beef up and get fit and he went in there bigger than he’s ever been.’

And proud Tess added that she was thrilled the rest of the nation was able to see her husband for the ‘kind and empathetic’ person he is, as well as his willingness to be a ‘real team player’ as she branded him a ‘sweetheart’.
Audiences appeared to agree, as the former Family Fortunes host went on to place third on the hugely popular ITV reality show, behind Jordan North and the inaugural Queen of the Castle, Giovanna Fletcher.
Vernon showed he’s just as captivated by his wife’s beauty last month, when she unveiled a snap of herself posing in a dazzling gold dress ahead of the Strictly Come Dancing season finale, which saw Bill Bailey crowned the winner.
As Tess took to Instagram to share a snap of her stunning ensemble, Vernon wrote: ‘Hubba bubba!!!!’ followed by heart, love eyes and fire emojis.
The feeling is mutual: Reacting to a snap of Tess last month, Vernon showed he admires her good looks just as much as she does, writing, ‘Hubba bubba!!!!’

Last month, Tess said she was already ‘feeding up’ her husband after his two-and-a-half stone weight loss.
She took to her Instagram Stories and shared a photo of chicken soup and bread she made for her other half.
Alongside the photo, the TV host wrote: ‘Chicken soup at bedtime… feeding him up’.
Tess told of her joy at having Vernon back home, sharing a snap of them together as she wrote: ‘After almost 5 weeks away (2 and a half in isolation before going into the Castle) it’s so good to have him home ❤️ Now it’s time to get that Christmas tree up.’

It comes after Vernon claimed he lost a lot of weight during his 19-day stint on I’m A Celebrity and was left feeling ‘drained’.
The erstwhile T4 host said the programme’s doctor delivered the news after a check-up before he left Gwrych Castle in Wales earlier this month.
He said: ‘We were eating nothing but rice and beans. For the first two meals you’re like, “Yeah, we can do this”, then you realise every meal is bloody rice and beans. It’s awful. You’re so drained.
‘The medic weighed us after the show and I’ve lost just over two and a half stone, and I haven’t got two and a half stone to lose. So you’re physically drained, you’re emotionally drained because you’re missing your family.’
Vernon, who has been married to Tess or 17 years, said that he was looking forward to putting the weight back on over Christmas.
The finalists: Giovanna Fletcher was crowned the Queen of the Castle, with Jordan North placing second and Vernon coming in third
