The couple were joined at their wedding by a host of famous faces including Ali’s former Hollyoaks co-star Carley Stenson and her partner Danny Mac as well as Westlife’s Kian Egan.

Ali and David knew it was love from the moment they first laid eyes on each other and there was an instant connection between them.

Ali said the moment David walked in, she thought: “I’m in so much trouble!”

She added that they “kissed like teenagers in a corner all night and ended up having eggs Benedict at 5am in a Soho cafe”.

The couple are also keen to have children together.
