Newly engaged Vick Hope says Vernon Kay made her blush with a cheeky comment to her Instagram holiday snap – 11 years after those Rhian Sugden sex texts.
The Radio 1 DJ, 32, who’s 16 years Vernon’s junior, revealed on her show that the former T4 presenter commented ‘yes please’ in response to her posting a photo taken with friends on holiday to her Instagram story.

During Thursday’s drive time show, which Vick co-presents with former I’m A Celeb star Jordan North, 32, the pair played a game of Access All Apps.
Radio 1 listeners called in with their questions about Vick’s personal phone and she was made to answer, acting as a guinea pig for the new radio feature, which will later see celebrity guests take part.
One caller asked: ‘I want to know who the last blue tick is you left on red in your Instagram DMs?’
Delving into her phone, Vick replied: ‘The last blue tick I left on red… the last one I’ve left on red… oh my God Vernon Kay!’

‘So, on my story there was a picture of me and my friends on holiday together and he’s gone ‘yes please’, I’m glad I opened that because otherwise I would have missed it. That’s brilliant, I love you, Vern. He’s always replying to my stories.’
Jordan joked: ‘I bet he is!’ before Vick said: ‘Shall I reply?
‘Yeah, reply now going lol. No, don’t go lol… I don’t know even I’m cringing,’ Jordan admitted.
Vick continued: ‘He said, ‘yes please’ so should I say, ‘you’re welcome?’ No that’s weird’ before Jordan decided: ‘Just put the little blushing emoji.’
Former Strictly star Vick, whose fiancé Calvin proposed to her underneath a tree at his farm in Ibiza, holidayed in the White Isle last month, and posted several Instagram stories wearing a bikini.

In 2010, Vernon was accused of having an illicit relationship with glamour model Rhian Sugden, 35, after the pair exchanged sexual text messages for four months while he was married to TV star Tess.
Vernon and Rhian, who’s now happily married to husband Oliver Mellor, met during a night out in Bolton.
The former All Star Family Fortunes host publicly apologised to Tess on radio and said in 2020 ahead of his appearance on I’m A Celeb that they had put the scandal behind them.
Vernon shares daughter Phoebe, 17, and Amber, 12, with Tess, who he’s been married to since September 2003.
In 2020, ex Page 3 model Rhian accused Vernon of ‘ruining’ her and said he had just ‘got away with it.’
During an interview for Channel 4 documentary Page Three: The Naked Truth, she said: ‘It was awful.
‘My whole family… must have been so embarrassed. And he just got away with it.
‘It ruined everything for me. I feel like I was going up and up and up with my career and then when that came along I wish I’d never met him … And he just got to give an apology to his wife on the radio and that was it for him.
‘That was like 12 years ago I think, and it still makes me feel physically sick.’
