Konnie Huq and Charlie Brooker married in a secret Las Vegas ceremony earlier this month, it has been claimed
Konnie Huq has got married.
The 'Xtra Factor' host tied the knot with TV critic Charlie Brooker - who she has been dating for around nine months - in a secret ceremony at the Las Vegas chapel in Nevada 10 days ago.
A source said: "They didn't want it to be a big thing so they went on their own and didn't have any friends or family there.
"Charlie was joking that he should dress up in full Elvis costume."
The couple - who had originally planned to marry during a month-long road trip around the US but had to change their plans because of the 35-year-old beauty's commitment to 'The Xtra Factor' - shunned the spotlight because of 39-year-old Charlie's hatred of being in the public eye,
A source told the Mail on Sunday newspaper: "Charlie didn't want a big, tacky celebrity wedding because he doesn't see him and Konnie as a celebrity couple. "They are very much in love but when it came down to it, he wanted the wedding to be low-key. He is finding it hard to accept the level of interest in their relationship.
"If it was up to him, they would lead a totally private life, enjoying playing PlayStation games at home together and eating in. But it is different for Konnie. She is used to all the attention her job brings her and doesn't mind being in the public eye."
