Speaking on Loose Women in May 2021, Sally revealed: “I’m not quite sure where we’re going to be in December. The way things have been dealt with, I didn’t want to risk arranging a wedding.

“We want to have a party. So if there’s 15 people allowed to come, it’s not great really.

“So we thought that it was best if we defer it for a year, and hopefully get the wedding that we want.”

Sally later revealed in an interview with The Mirror in December 2021, that her and Joe’s wedding will be in December 2022.
