Jessica Rowe has marked her wedding anniversary with Peter Overton with the sweetest tribute, revealing the unconventional way the couple spent the occasion.
The former Studio 10 host took to Instagram to share their special day with the followers.
Along with a photo of the Crap Housewife creator in her kitchen with her husband, Jess wrote: "18 years ago today I made the best decision of my life- marrying this darling man! And today we 'celebrated' by scrubbing the fridge for our move! (actually Petee did the scrubbing while I carried on like a pork chop!) #craphousewife #weddinganniversary #18years #luckywife #peteishandywithascrubbingbrush."
It's not a glamorous way to celebrate an anniversary, but it's practical. Instagram
The couple soon received well wishes in the comments below.
Journalist Sarah Harris shared a bunch of heart emojis, while actor Suzan Mutesi penned: "Happy anniversary @jessjrowe !! Love you guys so much! ❤️❤️."
Jess and Peter first met when the former Today Show host was just 19 and doing university work experience at Channel Ten. At the time, Peter was a sports reporter.
Years later, when Jess was an established journalist in her own right, the pair bumped into each other at the Logies.

They got to talking and Jess later told Mia Freedman's No Filter podcast that she was thinking: "Why can't I meet a nice man like this? Why am I not attracting really good decent people like this beautiful man?'"
After breaking up with her boyfriend, she was chatting to her friend rugby league reporter Tony Peters about her desire for a nice guy and mentioned Peter's name.
Tony then rung up Peter and convinced him to ask Jess out.
"We went out on a Sunday night to a Thai restaurant in Balmain. That was in June 2001 and we've never been apart." Instagram
Newly divorced and having just started a job at 60 Minutes, Peter wasn't really looking to date anyone but decided he'd give it a shot.
"I said, 'Well if she rings me within 10 minutes and asks me out, I'll go,'" Peter told Nine Honey.
"And she rang. And I said, 'I like your style.'

The pair have been married since 2004 and share two daughters, Allegra and Giselle.
