Speaking to Hello! magazine, Fleur said: "I think every girl grows up thinking of their wedding. I'm a huge fan of love and romance. Marcel always laughs at me, saying I live in Disneyland and that I believe in fairytales!"

Marcel added: "There's a big difference between a marriage and a wedding – and you've got to make sure you've met the right person. It's a lot of work. You need a friend as well as a lover; someone who understands you and has the same vision as you."

He added: "It's a long journey and if you're going to commit, you've got to understand the full picture. And when you meet the right person, you know."
