Paying tribute to Liz - who he's known since they were eight - Kelvin described the moment that Liz walked down the aisle in 2015.

He said: "When I saw her, she literally took my breath away. Every emotion, every memory ran through [me] - from being a kid, having a cheeky little kiss in the playground, holding hands, being best mates.

"Best moment of my life."
