Congratulations are in order for Ben Haenow - The X Factor winner has married his long-term partner Jessica Jones.

The singer, who won Simon Cowell’s television talent contest in 2014, said “I do” in front of family and friends at an intimate ceremony in Italy at the weekend.

And the musician says he was so happy on the day that he couldn’t stop crying.

He told the MailOnline: “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 with the wife of my dreams after a fairytale wedding.

“This is the beginning of our happy ever after.”

The Croydon-born star says his bride was “beautiful” and shared a picture of himself enjoying a warm hot tub with her on their honeymoon with fans.

Ben gave the job of Best Man to his brother Alex and his grandmother acted as a translator so the English attendees could understand the Italian ceremony.

Guests were given a fan with the bride and groom’s names and the date of their wedding on so they could keep cool.

Sharing a picture of the keepsake on his Instagram page, Ben's brother Alex wrote: “A beautiful day surrounded by beautiful people.”

Ben and Jessica got engaged in November last year but Ben actually promised to pop the question a year before.
