Celebrity Big Brother housemate reveals shock secret Las Vegas marriage

Kept this quiet!

Celebrity Big Brother’s Jess Impiazzi has claimed she secretly wed her former boyfriend in Vegas.

The Ex On The Beach star told The Sun on Sunday before entering the house that she tied the knot with rugby player Denny Solomona in November 2016.

Fans knew the couple were engaged after Denny popped the question in Las Vegas.

But according to Jess, the pair actually went ahead and wed there and then, walking down the aisle at the same chapel where Britney Spears famously wed childhood friend Jason Alexander.

Jess told the paper: “I thought we would have a normal wedding, but before I could blink we were walking down the aisle in the same place Britney got married.

“I was so happy.”

Jess admitted she was the one who jokingly suggested a quickie Vegas wedding and somehow the joke became a reality as they exchanged vows in the middle of the afternoon.

“It was nerve-wracking but romantic and hilarious,” she said.

However, the marriage began to crumble and the couple later split, with Jess saying she’s now waiting for divorce papers to come through.

Denny has not responded to Jess’s claims yet.

Jess only revealed her split from Denny days before entering the Celebrity Big Brother house at the start of January.

She said there had been “no nastiness” or bitterness in the split, and they would still see each other as they share two dogs and co-own two houses.

He’s yet to comment on the split, but Jess told The Sun he’d sent her a good luck text message when he found out she was doing CBB.

Jess was immune from the first Celebrity Big Brother eviction this week, meaning she couldn’t be nominated.

In the end it was newsreader India Willoughby who was evicted, after losing out to Love Island’s Jonny Mitchell in the first public vote of the series.
