Jimi Mistry married his former 'Strictly Come Dancing' partner Flavia Cacace yesterday (29.12.13) at the St. Pancras Renaissance hotel in London
Jimi Mistry has married 'Strictly Come Dancing' star Flavia Cacace.
The 40-year-old actor tied the knot with the professional dancer - whom he was paired with in the 2010 edition of BBC One ballroom competition - yesterday (29.12.13) at London's St. Pancras Renaissance hotel.
The 34-year-old stunner shared a photograph from the wedding on Twitter, which she accompanied with the caption: "Had the most amazing day with family & friends @StPancrasRen xxx (sic)."
As well as posting the message, Flavia changed her surname on the social networking site from Cacace to Cacace-Mistry.
Several stars took to Twitter to congratulate the couple including Flavia's fellow 'Strictly' professional dancer Kristina Rihanoff.
She wrote: "congratulations my darling !!xx (sic)"
Astrologer Russell Grant, who partnered Flavia in the 2011 series of 'Strictly', also congratulated the pair and admitted the news had reduced him to tears of joy.
He tweeted: "@FlaviaCacace just to let you know I'm in tears of happiness in my dressing room @lighthousepanto (sic)"
Former 'Strictly' judge Arlene Phillips wrote: "Never seen you look more beautiful. Xxxx (sic)"
Jimi - who plays ex-squaddie Kal in 'Coronation Street' - popped the question to the brunette beauty last New Year's Eve (31.12.12), but later admitted he hadn't planned to propose.
He said: "I didn't plan on it being then, but it turned out that way."
Jimi was previously married to Meg Leonard from 2001 to 2010 and the former couple have 12-year-old daughter Elin Leonard-Mistry together.
