SAS: Who Dares Wins star Ollie Ollerton has married his fiancée in a secret ceremony.
Ollie and Laura Gander, 40, eloped to Gretna Green on December 27, which was also his 50th birthday, and spent their honeymoon near Lake Windermere.
They had planned to marry in a James Bond themed wedding back in July last year, but their big day was cancelled because of the coronavirus pandemic.
He told Hello magazine : "We defied all the odds and it was an absolute mission to pull it off. It was the year when it looked like we wouldn't be able to marry, and then we did.

"We did it on that day so I'll never forget our anniversary."
Their wedding followed all the Covid-19 restrictions.
Laura said: "It was quite surreal, and stressful in the lead up as literally the week before the wedding everything was changing again in both England and Scotland.

"I was straight on to the Scottish government website checking out the restrictions, but we found out that you could cross the border into Scotland if you were going there for a wedding."
Laura wore a stunning dress by Ghost, the same one worn Léa Seydoux by on the film poster for Spectre.
Ollie added: "It was more than just a wedding as we worked within all the tier rules when we could have just said: 'Oh this is too hard.' It really made it about us."
