Everyone was shocked to find that they still fitted and Hayley persuaded her grandparent to throw a party to celebrate their anniversary wearing the garments.

Speaking to the telegraph Carole- Anne said,

A lot of people knew we were going to wear them, but they were still stunned to see us in them.

Speaking of the key to a happy marriage Carole- Anne said,

Jim loved my big blonde hair, and I loved his humour – he is such a comedian and always makes me laugh. I think that’s the key, we have very different interests and hobbies, but the laughter is what keeps us strong.
