‘She asked me to perform with one of my Strictly ex-partners but I said, “No, it’s our wedding, I want to dance with you.” We decided to do the normal smooch.

‘I couldn’t look back at Susan as she walked up the aisle because I was afraid I would dissolve into tears. She looked so beautiful, really breathtaking.’

Some of Vincent’s former celebrity partners on Strictly include Rachel Stevens, Natalie Cassidy, Edwina Currie and Louisa Lytton.
