Their celebrity pals have rushed to congratulate the pair of becoming husband and wife.

Football pundit Matt Jarvis wrote: "Congrats both of you!" as Reading FC star Tom McIntyre said: "Congrats mate".

"Ahhh mate congratulations!! Hope you both had the perfect day," wrote someone else, while a fourth penned: "Congratulations to you both".

"Wohooo! Congratulations you two xxx", wrote another.

Billi and Andy had their ceremony at plush Hampshire hotel The Four Seasons – the perfect location for a private ceremony hidden away within 500 acres of countryside.

According to the website, weddings take place in a 16th-century walled garden where you can "mingle with guests after the ceremony in the late afternoon light for cocktails and canapés while younger guests enjoy a teddy bear picnic in the nearby forest".

The hotel blurb says: "Capture magical moments with a professional photographer throughout the property's 500 acres of quintessential English countryside; then enjoy a fully catered dinner made with the freshest local ingredients.

"Whether you desire an intimate orchard ceremony or a large celebration in the heart of the manor, we promise an unforgettable day."

Suites at the hotel cost £1,675 per night, and so naturally you'd expect some seriously lavish parties to take place.

Prior to walking down the aisle, some questioned if their wedding would go ahead after Andy was spotted in bed with another woman during his stag do to Dubai.

The incident left Billi "humiliated", sparking her pals to encourage her to call off their wedding.

"Billi is in bits," her friend told us. "She’s dreamt of this day for years – they got engaged in 2014.

"She’s waited a while and they’ve been together a long time. But her friends and family are telling her to postpone the wedding.

"They think she should put it on hold and wait. They don’t want her to look like a mug."

Billi and Andy have evidently but the blip behind them however, and are now officially husband and wife.
