Both wearing navy and white with hot orange accents, the Millers, a solicitor and farmer from Dorset, said they were surprised and delighted to win.
“We were very happy to come in the top three, so to actually win is amazing,” said Kelly, whose parents live in Cheveley.

“I think a husband was what I was missing,” she laughed.
“I wasn’t even supposed to be here; I was supposed to be harvesting. Then on Monday dad said we’d wait till next week, so here I am,” adds Justin, who matched his wife with navy suit and orange tie.
“It’s been a great day.”
Second place went to Newmarket’s Victoria and Lewis Blackbird, while the third spot was taken by Wakefield couple Cheryl Evans and Steven Hanson.
