Jamaican wedding plans

But last month, fans were pleased when Fred opened up about his upcoming wedding in a chat on Good Morning Britain.

He popped the question to his fiancée, who he affectionately refers to only as Fruitcake, in March earlier this year.

When asked how he did it, Fred told presenters Ben Shephard and Kate Garraway: “It was perfect because she said yes. That’s the main thing. The only thing is though is I did not get a ring.

“But I’ve now managed to do it because we are out of lockdown so the ring is there and she is very happy. So all is well!”

The star is planning to tie the knot in Jamaica.

Originally, the couple were hoping to walk down the aisle next year. They had to postpone plans due to COVID.

Fred explained: “We’re waiting to see when we can travel because it’s important for all of our friends and family [to be there].

“We have to be patient and see what is going to happen. It is out of our control, but we are planning for early 2022 now.”
