They celebrated their 16th wedding anniversary last year and recently welcomed their fifth child together – and by all accounts, it seems as if celeb couple Jamie and Jools Oliver are more in love than ever!

Taking to Instagram, the brunette beauty shared a sweet photo showcasing some of the early love letters Jamie had written her while she was working overseas for three months as a teenager.

“When I was 17 I worked in Tokyo for 3 months and every single day Jamie sent me a letter or a fax with out fail!” she revealed.

“These are only half of them. I started reading them and it brought back just the best and happiest memories.”

Also visible in the photo next to the stack of love notes was a small bottle of perfume – Dior’s ‘Poison’ – which Jools revealed was the very first fragrance Jamie ever bought her.

She added that the treasured keepsake was “the first perfume he ever brought me at Liverpool Street Station where we met after his college and my work! The smell has never faded!”

The couple first began dating in their teens and tied the knot at All Saint church in Jamie’s home village of Rickling, Essex, on June 24, 2000.

The duo have five children together, Poppy Honey Rosie (15), Daisy Boo Pamela (13), Petal Blossom Rainbow (7), Buddy Bear Maurice (6) and River Rocket, who was born in August last year.
