Rebecca Adlington and her beau Harry Needs got married over the weekend in Staffordshire after she lost 30lbs following her stint on 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!'
Rebecca Adlington has got married.
The 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here' star tied the knot with her beau Harry Needs at The Ashes in Staffordshire at the weekend, and credits the jungle-based show - which she came sixth place in last year - for helping her shed 30 pounds in time for her big day.
Speaking to HELLO! magazine, she said: "I lost nearly two stone in the jungle and perhaps another four or five pounds since then. So it was a great kick start, and I feel better for it. But I don't like it when people assume you're really happy because you're thin.
"I'm not suddenly confident because I have lost weight, I'm happy because I'm marrying the love of my life."
The 25-year-old star - who has two Olympic gold medals under her belt - and Harry exchanged vows they'd written themselves and the blonde beauty admits her beau was even more emotional than her.
She said: "The ceremony was so personal, which was exactly what we wanted.
"I love the fact Harry was in bits before I even reached him. I was a bit nervous in the car on the way here with my dad, but as soon as I walked in, my nerves melted and I relaxed. The room was just so full of love."
