Fans of Celebrity Big Brother will know that former X Factor finalist – and current Big Brother’s Bit on the Side co-host – Rylan Clark struck up what was arguably an unlikely friendship with former footballer Neil ‘Razor’ Ruddock during their time on the show earlier this year…

And evidently, their bromance continued to flourish after the show ended as it’s been reported today that when Razor wed his long-term love Leah Newman over the weekend, Rylan played the role of ringbearer.

The Daily Mirror reports that Razor and Leah wed “in a Kent country house” with their daughters Pebbles and Kizzy playing major roles in the couple’s big day.

And while speaking to Hello magazine about why he and Leah hadn’t married before now, Razor – who formerly starred on I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here – remarked, “People used to ask, ‘Why is it taking you so long to make Leah your wife?’

“We had our reasons. We wanted our little girls to be old enough to enjoy our special day…

“And they did, they had a ball.”

He added, “For us, it was the right time and the perfect day. You can’t ask for more than that.

“Everyone was coming up saying it was the best wedding they’d ever been to.

“And obviously we’d have to agree.”

Other celebrity guests at the wedding included comedian Bobby Davro, former EastEnders star Gillian Taylforth and Heartbeat actress Tricia Penrose. Both Gillian and Tricia of course also starred in CBB alongside Razor and Rylan.

Neil added, “We waited a long time for this day, so it was important to me that we took our vows seriously and really took in what we were saying to each other.

“Leah looked so beautiful, I couldn’t take my eyes off her.

“For those few minutes, it was just me and her.”

Aww bless him! Congrats to you both Neil and Leah from all of us!
