Last night’s episode of Made in Chelsea (14 December) marked a very special occasion as the SW3-based show’s first ever wedding took place when, after months of Covid-related delays, MIC icon Ollie Locke and his fiancé Gareth finally tied the knot – just hours before England went into lockdown for the second time.

The couple may have lost out on their dream venue after it refused to perform a gay wedding, but their spectacular intimate ceremony at the Natural History Museum had fans bawling their eyes out as Ollie and Gareth became legally wed.

The wedding quickly turned into a sobf-est as both men read out their self-penned vows, with Gareth telling Ollie, “Twelve years in the making, and although it wasn’t love at first sight, I have grown and witnessed a man I was destined to be in love with. I couldn’t be happier to call you my family, and to have you as my partner through for the rest of my life.”

Ollie said, “You make me eternally happy, that every time I wake up in the morning and know you’re lying next to me. I remember when I wrote my first book, at the very end it said, if you’re out there love, hurry up” – and you were already there. I just didn’t know it for a couple more years.

“All the most important parts of my life you were always somewhere in the background, and I couldn’t be happier to be standing here right now, about to go on this big adventure.”

The finale was dedicated to the newly-married couple as show bosses ended the episode with a photo of them kissing and wrote, “Congratulations Ollie and Gareth. This year has been challenging… but love wins.”

Blimey, anyone got a tissue?

Jamie and Lucy were together for a bit and would even walk their dogs together. Not one for holding back, Lucy Watson has called the show 'incestuous' and she 'no longer wants to waste time with people like Jamie and Proudlock'. BURN.

Topshop Heiress Chloe Green joined the MIC lot in 2011 to date Ollie Locke. Ollie had previously dated Gabby who he broke up with to explore his feelings for men, only to then end up with another woman. It did not go down well...

When Hugo was dating Millie Mackintosh in the show, he hooked up with her best friend Rosie. Millie then raised her glass to a party full of guests and said 'cheers to friendship'.

7. Spencer Matthews and Lucy Watson

Spenny took Lucy to Paris in 2013 and we almost believed he had given up his womanising ways. We were wrong and he admitted to cheating on Lucy with several women. Sigh.

8. Spencer Matthews and Louise Thompson

Louise joined the show as Spencer's (very despairing) girlfriend. Spencer being Spencer, couldn't stay faithful and resulted in a fair few teary scenes between the pair.

9. Alex Mytton and Binky Felstead

Binky and Alex were love's young dream (kinda) for two years until his constant cheating became unforgivable. It all worked out well though as she now has the cutest little baby girl with JP.

We weren’t the only ones in tears either as viewers took to social media to share their reaction to Ollie and Gareth’s nuptials.

“Don’t think I’ve ever cried that much at the wedding of people I don’t know #MadeInChelsea #LoveWins,” wrote one.

Another tweeted, “Sobbed repeatedly at Ollie and Gareth’s wedding... love is love and you should always be allowed to marry your true love. Gender/sexuality shouldn’t prevent that ❤️.”

“Well I am sobbing my heart out at Ollie and Gareth’s gorgeous wedding, and would like to know where the men that love this fiercely and wholly are in real life, please #MadeInChelsea,” added a third.

In other Made in Chelsea relationship news, Sam Thompson and Zara McDermott have finally confirmed they’re back together after weeks of speculation.

They split up earlier this year when it came to light that Zara cheated on Sam with music mogul Brahim Fouradi during her stint on The X Factor: Celebrity last year, but later sparked rumours they’d reunited when they were pictured enjoying a Sunday roast with friends and again when Zara emerged from Sam’s house wearing one of his hoodies.

Now, as she turns 24, Zara has confirmed she and Sam are firmly back on by sharing a photo of them kissing. Alongside the Instagram post, she wrote, “The best birthday I could ever ever ever ever ever ever ever ever ever ever ever ever ever ever ever ever ever ever have wished for in my whole life 😭❤️."
