Everybody's favourite secret couple Cat Deeley and Patrick Kielty have sneaked off and got married in Italy over the weekend.

The pair, who stunned fans after they unveiled their romance in May, walked down the aisle in Rome in front of 60 friends and family.

A snap of the beaming couple shows Cat in a lacy white dress with flowers in her hair, while her funnyman beau opted for an understated navy suit and white shirt with no tie.

A source told The Sun: "It was a very intimate service with just 60 friends and family. Cat was stunning, she looked absolutely beautiful, and the reception afterwards was pretty quiet too by normal standards.

"The wedding plans were top secret. Friends of Paddy and Cat only found out in the last few days."

The ceremony took place at St Isidore's College Church, and Patrick flew out his parish priest to oversee the nuptials.

Cat and Patrick have been friends for 10 years after meeting while hosting BBC talent show Fame Academy, but only hooked up last year after her split from Michael McMillian.

Opening up about finding love with her old pal, Cat told US TV host Kelly Ripa, "I am no longer a single lady. I am dating a really old friend of mine. I have known him for 10 years.

"I don't know. Ladies just like to take their time. Now I have finally seen the light."
