Victoria has re-worn her wedding dress since

Journalist Victoria Derbyshire has been getting to grips with life in the I'm A Celebrity castle – faced with basic food and an array of critters, and her time in the Welsh camp has been worlds away from the luxury of her idyllic wedding day back in 2018.

Her fairytale gown was designed and handmade by Wilden London, and featured delicate chantilly lace, soft tulle in the palest of blues and pretty silk daisy motifs.

The 'something blue' wedding tradition comes from the rhyme 'something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue and a sixpence in your shoe'. It is an age-old superstition that having these things will bring your wedding day good luck.

A touch of subtle glamour was added with a crystal empire line and it was this, along with a hidden corselette, which showcased Victoria's sensational figure.

On the Wilden website, bridal designer Charlotte explains: "A corselette is more subtle than a corset, it sculpts the natural body shape, rather than being tight a creating a new one - I don’t really make corsets."

The dress was designed with raglan-style sleeves to make the lace easier to move in – no doubt so Victoria could take to the dancefloor with ease.

On her special day, her two sons, Oliver and Joe, walked her down the aisle and in an emotional Instagram post by Joe (on his mother's account) he talked about her overcoming cancer and them celebrating the incredible wedding day as a family.
