After meeting on the hit dating show over 20 years ago, couple Paul Pratt and Anna Azonwanna are still together.

The pair met on the popular television show in 1993.

Fans of the series may remember Paul coming back on the show in 1998 to propose to Anna.

Paul (43) and Anna (42) said their vows in Barbados the following year, with none other than Cilla Black as their guest of honour.

For their big day, Cilla jetted the couple to the Caribbean on a luxury jet.

“It was a beautiful ceremony with great scenery overlooking Barbados,” Paul told the Metro.

“Cilla was great, she took a real interest in us and I got on really well with her,” Anna added.

The couple now have two children, Jessie-Mae (5) and Syrus (8).

“Paul had the best one liners and the audience received him well,” Anna said of the first time she heard her soul mate talk.

When she asked him what animal he would be, Paul infamously retorted, “a tiger because I always catch what I aim for.”
