Speaking on Kate Thornton’s podcast White Wine Question Time this month, Sally revealed she and Nick had surprised their guests with their wedding.

“Basically I never wanted to get married, ever. I wanted to be with somebody and for me the decision to have a child was a much bigger commitment.”

They started their family, but Sally admitted that as soon as James was born she realised she wanted “the same as everybody else” and they decided to get married.

But she didn’t want a fuss and also admitted she’s no good at remembering dates. So they decided to get married on her birthday, at James’s christening!

“We had the christening and then we were at the reception,” she continued.

“My best friend and I ducked out, did a quick change and called my dad to the back of the room. He sees me in a wedding dress, loses the use of his arms and legs and I went: ‘Dad, pull yourself together’.”

She revealed the band then started playing the Wedding March. People thought it was a big strange until they turned round and saw Sally walking down the aisle.

“Everyone started screaming and crying,” she said.

Kate reckoned she approached her wedding like “admin”, to which Sally agreed and said: “that’s pretty much how I approach everything!”

While Johnny was in prison, Jenny cheated on him with Ronnie Bailey.

Jenny has since moved on with toy boy Leo. Meanwhile Johnny has decided to go to Bali to be with daughter Kate.
