Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux surprised the world – and many of their guests – when they pulled off a secret wedding on Wednesday. However one person who was in on it from the start was their friend, Howard Stern.

The radio host shared details from the couple's big day during his Sirius XM show on Monday, including details of their first dance – a Sia song, performed live by the singer at the wedding.

Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux married on Wednesday

While the newlyweds took to the dancefloor for their first dance as man and wife, Howard had an A-List dance partner of his own in the form of his new friend and fellow wedding guest, Orlando Bloom.

"I run to Orlando and say, 'Orlando, first dance?' So Orlando grabbed me so tight, I thought my bones were going to break," he revealed.

The pair struck up a friendship at the wedding despite Howard admitting he previously had no idea of who the actor was.

"So this really handsome guy is sitting next to me at the table… This guy's like better looking than Johnny Depp, Brad Pitt and Tom Cruise all rolled into one," he explained. "I'm sitting and talking to this guy… we're hitting it off and talking for a long time. I said, 'What is your name?' He says, 'Orlando'… He's so handsome!"

Howard gave a speech at the nuptials, revealing: "I'm very friendly with Justin… I like him, I really admire him. I even said in my speech to them that if one of my daughters brought home a guy like Justin, I'd be very pleased."

The 61-year-old was not the only famous face given a role in the couple's big day – Courteney Cox was maid of honour, while talk show host Jimmy Kimmel officiated the wedding, with Howard saying he did "a beautiful job".

Jennifer and Justin tied the knot at their Bel Air mansion on Wednesday, almost three years to the day after they got engaged. The newlyweds jetted off for their honeymoon in Bora Bora, where they were reportedly joined by Courteney and Jennifer's Horrible Bosses co-star Jason Bateman, his wife Amanda, and their two children.
