The newlywed posted a photo of her hand over her husband's as they showed off their wedding bands. While James opted for a classic platinum band, Jodie showed off a diamond encrusted band to match her diamond engagement ring.

Jodie's engagement news came as a shock to her fans, who commented with congratulatory messages and told the star: "You deserve the happiness and happy ending you've been waiting for".

The former Celebrity Big Brother star has kept her relationship out of the spotlight and is yet to share a photo of her husband, but it appears he has won the approval of Jodie's friends.
