“I’m just excited to call Marcel my husband. Our wedding was perfect. The weather was amazing, the skies were so clear, every single guest was invested in the day and all got on with each other.

“The love in the congregation was overwhelming. I’ll never forget the feeling. I took in every single second of it.”

Sharing her favourite picture on Instagram, she gushed: “Back from Morocco and over the moon to announce that I am officially a Mrs!

“I married my best friend of 9 years and in our 10th year we became Husband and Wife. It was hand on heart the happiest and most special day of my life!

“Shared with all of our favourite people and it couldn’t have been more perfect. I’ve never cried and smiled so much in equal measure.”

Revealing the details of her reception, she admitted she was called upon by the DJ to perform a rendition of her own song Sax.

“I had a feeling that was going to happen. Then he asked me to sing for my husband and I sang If I Ain’t Got You by Alicia Keys – it was the first song that came to my head! It was actually a really nice moment,” Fleur said.

She changed into a Raine and Bea white bridal jumpsuit for the glitzy reception, where King of the Jungle Harry Redknapp and wife Sandra, Hollyoaks’ Malique Thompson-Dwyer, reality star Vas J Morgan, and presenter AJ Odudu danced the night away.

Football manager Harry shared the secrets of his long marriage with her, Fleur revealed.

“He said to be mates. That’s the main thing, that you’re friends,” she said.

Designer Marcel, who has dressed stars like Rita Ora and Jason Derulo, surprised Fleur with a yellow diamong ring during a romantic visit to Tokyo after her jungle stint.
