The Real Housewives of Cheshire star Hanna Kinsella was surprised by husband Martin for their second wedding anniversary and their first as parents.
Cosmetic dentist Hanna and anti-ageing doctor Martin had low-key celebrations last year because of Covid-19 and because the reality TV personality was pregnant with their son Maximus who is now seven months old.
But this year to celebrate, Martin arranged a weekend in London for them after Hanna spent the day filming for the 14th series of the ITVBe reality show.
She told us: "I was actually filming on the day we travelled when I got the call from Martin and I managed to get the train to London in time to meet him.
"He’d booked a spectacular 360° view suite at the Shangri-La Hotel at The Shard.
"We’ve never stayed there before and when I got there I could not believe the room.
"The views were incredible."
In evening the couple, who married in Liverpool the city where they met while she studied dentistry 13 years earlier, dined at the Aqua Shard restaurant.
"The Aqua Shard is quite dimly lit – and its on the 31st floor – so because of this you just get the best views over the city and all you can see are glittering lights, and the sunset and that way you get to really appreciate the beauty of London," said Hanna.

"We had a lovely evening together and it was one of those situations when you go out for diner on a Friday night, when you’ve been working all week, so you are a little tired but nothing a drink and a nice meal can’t sort."
The next day the Kinsellas went to Borough Market, one of Hanan's favourite places, for lunch.
"All in all it was a very special trip at a busy time," said Hanna, who has launched her own dental products Icy Bear and new book Brains are the New Tits as well as going back to work at Kiln Lane Dental in St Helen's part-time.
"We had a lovely time together reflecting on the past two years and making plans for the future," she said.
"We have a jam-packed year coming up and we are so happy to face all our new projects and decisions together.
"I am so lucky to have married my best friend and he did extremely well keeping the trip a secret, so Martin, thank you."
