Speaking to Hello! magazine admitted to hatching the plan with her nine-year-old son Freddie, who had delivered his father a special letter, like a scene from a romantic film.

The letter invited Shepherd, 50, to join Anderson at the ceremony to re-promise themselves to each other, and read: ‘I love you and if you’d like to do the same, please meet me at the beach…’. 

She told the publication: ‘How James didn’t know is beyond me, It was so magical and so intimate with it just being the three of us’.

Adding: ‘It was absolutely perfect and all I dreamt it would be.’
