Bill Duncan, 72, proposed to wife, Anne, 70, because he was convinced she was his new girlfriend.

The couple have been together for nearly 20 years, and married for 13, but Bill has forgotten parts of their life together due to his illness.

Anne told how her husband repeatedly asked to her to marry him, until she eventually agreed to get married for a second time in an emotional garden ceremony at their home in Aberdeen.

She told the Real Fix podcast that despite being married for years, their second wedding meant the couple got to enjoy the “honeymoon period” all over again.
