Who is Ben’s wife?
Ben and Jessica tied the knot in Northern Italy, where his family are originally from.
The singer popped the question, after the couple had been together over a decade.
Opening up on their wedding day, Ben told the Mail Online: “We got married in a small town in Northern Italy, where my nan grew up, near the river Brenta.”
The former ITV star previously admitted that it had been “tough” to maintain a good relationship with Jessica, while focusing on his music career.
He revealed one of his tracks, All Yours, was about his relationship.
Speaking about the song, Ben said: “This is kind of about when you’re away from someone and maybe you’re not taking the care and attention that you should to keep in contact with them, what their friends are saying back home and the stories that are being told.
“It’s basically just about when you go out and you put yourself out there and people don’t understand that everything you’re doing is for them and it seems like you’re offending or hurting someone.”
Jessica supported Ben throughout his X Factor journey.
