The pair got married in an intimate ceremony, saying “I do” in front of 60 friends and family members. They walked down the aisle to Barbra Streisand’s Some Enchanted Evening, before exchanging their vows.

After the ceremony, Kylie Minogue’s “Better the Devil You Know” played them out of the building, The Sun newspaper reported.

According to the Daily Mail, Burrell said after the ceremony: “Everything about the day has been perfect, made even more wonderful by the fact my two sons were here to share in the occasion.

“There’s no more hiding my unbridled happiness now.

“Life is about being true to who you are and, for the first time ever, I’m able to stand proudly beside my husband and say ‘This is who I am’.”

Burrell became famous after he wrote a tell-all book of his life with Princess Diana.

He went on to do TV shows around the world and made appearances on reality TV shows I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here and Celebrity Big Brother.
