What are the chances of that? Couple married two decades discover holiday photo of themselves - taken 14 years before they even met

A couple who have been married for 20 years were astonished to discover an old holiday photo featuring both of them as children - 14 years before they met.

The black and white snapshot taken on a Butlins holiday in 1965 shows a four-year-old Mandy Knaggs peering into the foreground towards the boy who she would later marry.

Her husband, Ray, who was also four at the time, was the mystery boy who features prominently in the picture, despite it being taken by one of Mandy's parents. 

By an incredible twist of fate, the pair who lived just streets away from each  other in Billingham, Teesside, found themselves on holiday in Filey at the same time - the only time Ray's family ever visited the camp.

Despite being yards apart in the photo, Mandy never actually met young Ray until more than a decade later.

Fate finally threw a grown-up Mandy and Ray together in 1979 - a lot closer to home at a club in Billingham - and, after hitting it off, the couple married in 1985 and went on to have five children.

'For all those years we were only a few streets away as kids, but we went to different schools,' said Mandy, who works at Billchem pharmacy.

'I don't even remember that particular holiday. Mum or dad took the photo, but we are hardly in it.

'You can just see my and my sister Julie's heads and Ray is right at the front of the photo.

'It looks more like his photo than mine! He's not looking at the camera but you can tell it's him.

'He had the most ridiculous boyish hairstyle, all clagged down at the front.'

For years after they married, the childhood photograph from Butlins stayed stored away - its incredible coincidence hidden - until one day when the couple were sharing their old snapshots.

Mandy remembers the moment well, saying: 'God, he was surprised when he saw it. He looked at the picture and said, "That's me! I was four!" 

'He kept saying, "What are the chances of that happening?" Ray believes in spiritual things, but I don't know about fate. But I think it definitely was there.'

The couple's children, Louise, 23, Mark, 20, Jessica, 18, and 16-year-old twins Ashleigh and Liam, all agree it's an amazing story.

The Butlins photo became a talking point again last week as Ray, who works at NETA Training in Stockton, was putting together a photo scrapbook of Mandy's life for her 50th birthday.
