Former EastEnders star Matt Di Angelo took to Instagram to confirm his wedding to fiancé Sophia Perry over the weekend.

The TV actor, 34, shared a gorgeous black and white video of himself and his bride at Grosvenor Chapel in London on Saturday with just one word: "Married."

Matt, who is best known for playing Dean Wicks in the BBC One soap, also shared a funny photo from the dance floor of their reception at the Dorchester Hotel with the couple cheekily playing with a smoke machine.

Matt was also known for his role as Sean Kennedy in Hustle from 2009 to 2012, and co-star and friend Adrian Lester added, "What an amazing couple! Congrats to you both."

Showing what a small world the soap business is, he also got congratulations from Coronation Street star Gareth Pierce who had been at the wedding. "We had the best time, you beauts. Congratulations!" he wrote alongside a whole line of eye heart emojis.

Handily for the pair, Sophia is actually a wedding planner - a third generation wedding planner, no less, in her family business, Perrys the Wedding Company.

Matt proposed to her in the Dominican Republic in May 2019. The couple both shared pictures at the time from the romantic proposal which included pizza and Champagne on the beach, with a definite focus on the pizza part!
