It was everything I'd hoped for and more.

They got married at Peckforton Castle and Liam has admitted they got "carried away" in an interview with OK! Magazine.

Liam told the publication: "It was everything I'd hoped for and more, so I'm chuffed. Me and JoJo were the last ones on the dance floor at 2.50am."

The couple announced their engagement last April with the soap star sharing the cheerful news on social media, declaring: "She only went and said yes..."

Speaking to OK! Magazine, Jo said: "I nearly died from a tumour; when it was discovered, I was weeks away from death."

She continued: "I was eventually referred to a consultant and was diagnosed with myasthenia gravis [a rare autoimmune disease that causes muscle weakness].

"The consultant gave me a scan, which discovered I had a tumour caused by the illness growing on my thymus gland [near the heart], which would've killed me if it wasn't discovered. I had it removed and three months later I was fully recovered!"
