Ben tied the knot with his long-term love Jessica in an intimate ceremony in Northern Italy in 2017.
He told MailOnline the day was all he dreamed of, joking: ‘I cried so many tears of joy, I needed a snorkel.’
Ben revealed it was in fact his ‘Nonna’ [nan] Rita who effectively performed the ceremony as she translated to the English guests, which made it all the more special.

He said: ‘We got married in a small town in Northern Italy, where my nan grew up, near the river Brenta.
‘We had a small ceremony of closest friends and family. I arrived nervous and excited for the biggest day of my life and left with the wife of my dreams after a fairytale wedding.
‘This is the beginning of our happy ever after.’
The couple have been together for 12 years and Ben popped the question in November 2016.
