Past contestants were also on the guest list, including Sara Davies, Tom Fletcher, JJ Chalmers, Colin Jackson and Brian Conley.

Opening up about her magical day, Amy told Hello!: “It was a stunning venue…It was a day I’d dreamt of since I was a little girl and, well, it was even more than that.

“I dance in front of millions but I was nervous to walk down the aisle.”

The professional dancer also confirmed that she has changed her name to Amy Dowden-Jones and is already thinking about children.

That same year, Ben proposed to Amy during a New Year’s Eve party.

Their other dance victories include becoming British Dance Federation Champions, English Closed Champions and Welsh Closed and Open Champions.

Ben now runs the Art in Motion Dance Academy alongside his wife.
