"I've not been asked to do any special role yet," he said. "I think I'm an usher so that will be fun."

In fact, Mark played Cupid where Jess and Will are concerned, and can now take credit for setting the couple up.

He went on to discuss the importance of supporting your family, including sisters Jess and Natalya, brother Josh, and parents Mark Senior and Carol.

"We always encourage each other, we're always there for each other," he said. "If one of us is nervous for a job, we will all be there saying, 'You can do this'. When you know you have that support system behind you, you feel a lot more confident."

William proposed to Jess during a ski holiday at Courchevel in February. "He took me by complete surprise," Jess told us. "At breakfast one morning he told me he was feeling unwell and returned to our room. When I went to find him, the door was ajar and there was music playing. There were candles lining the hallway, red rose petals scattered across the floor, flowers, red heart-shaped balloons and two glasses of champagne waiting. I was stunned."
