'Songs were sung, memories were made and dreams can true when Elton dedicated a song to Dan and I ❤️ thank you @bengibsonphoto for taking this picture!'

Holly spoke about the concert on an episode of This Morning, telling her co-host Phillip Schofield: 'I had the best weekend, I really did. Dan surprised me with some tickets to go see Elton John a long, long time ago.

'And it was a very special concert because it was in Tuscany. It was outside in the walled city of Lucco, it was absolutely beautiful.'

Holly explained that a particular lyric in I Guess That's Why They Call It The Blues has a special significance for her and Dan.

She said: 'It was made extra special by the fact that Elton very kindly asked if we would come and say hello to him beforehand so I was all a bit starstruck about that. And we have this picture, which is really nice."

'He sounded incredible but I told him at the time that Dan and I have a favourite lyric in a song, which is called I Guess That's Why They Call It The Blues. ' 

' "Live for each second without hesitation. And never forget I'm your man." We love that bit so I told him that, didn't think anything of it.

'And then we went to see the concert, we were standing there and Elton goes "I'm dedicating this song to Holly and Dan" and then played that song and it was one of the most magical moments of my life ever.' 

Dan and Holly first met on the set of children's TV show, Ministry of Mayhem, in 2014 and after 18 months of dating they got engaged.

The couple tied the knot in 2007 at St Michael's Church and hosted their wedding reception at Amberley Castle, a 900-year-old castle in West Sussex.

Holly previously reflected on their relationship and revealed that they were pals for six months before they began dating.

Speaking to Woman and Home magazine in the past, Holly said: 'At first, I didn’t fancy Dan at all – I didn’t even think about it. I don’t think he could have fancied me either because it was such a genuine friendship.'

On the cusp of celebrating 12 years of marriage, the popular presenter previously told The Sun what the secret to their long-lasting relationship was.

Holly said at the time: 'I mean obviously I really love Dan. We really have a good laugh together and I don’t want to sound like a massive cliché but we get on really well'

'I rely on him for a lot of stuff. I think we just work better as a pair so that helps'.
