The 59-year-old revealed he "got lairy" after a fire alarm at his hotel, and he was still behind bars hours before he was due to tie the knot. "I would have had pre-wedding wobbles if I had known what was going to happen," she began. "So we got married and then between getting married and heading to the reception, Gary informed me that the night before…he'd been arrested and thrown in a police cell."

Even Nadia Sawalha seemed shocked by the story, responding: "What?"

"Basically, there was a fire alarm and he wouldn't leave the hotel until he knew the kids were alright and they wouldn't let him know where the kids were. Anyway, he got lairy. And then it was all fine and it was a false alarm and he went to sleep," she continued. But the drama wasn't over!

After receiving a knock on the door from four policemen, Jane said: "He got arrested, chucked into the cells underneath the place.

"He said, 'At one point, I could see through the bars that it was getting daylight.' We were getting married at 10am."

Trying to alert the policemen about his upcoming wedding, Gary was reportedly shouting, "I'm getting married", but they simply responded with: "Oh, we've heard that excuse!"

Talk about a poor night's sleep for poor Gary! Luckily, he made it to his wedding on time and Jane now sees the funny side.

The couple got married at London's Claridges Hotel on 4 May 2002, with a star-studded guest list that included Jonathan Ross, Barbara Windsor and Frank Skinner, while Sir Elton John was Gary's best man.

Jane shared a glimpse at her wedding dress, which features a cowl neckline and long sheer sleeves. She accessorised with a fine chain necklace and a headband that sat on the top of her sleek blonde bob, while her two bridesmaids wore purple dresses.

The TV star is mum to daughters, Ellie and Grace, from a previous relationship, and a step-mum to Gary's daughter Lauren.
