Simon, 48, posted a pic showing him and his new bride, 30, beaming as they headed back up the aisle as man and wife. According to reports, they married in Norwich Cathedral.

Among the shots was one of the newlyweds being showered in confetti as they appear to enjoy their first dance as husband and wife.

Tagging the wedding venue as Oxnead Hall in Norwich, the Insta user described the bash as a “magical evening”.

They added: “Simon and Derrina, you’re an absolute delight.”
