The Heart Radio star is now happily married to her husband Chris Hughes, with whom she shares daughters Lexi and Hollie, but when she was 24, Amanda tied the knot with Family Fortunes host Les, then 42. Unearthed wedding photos have revealed just how different her first wedding outfit with her ex was from the one she wore in 2008.

Normally we're used to seeing Amanda cutting a modern figure in her stylish dresses on Instagram, but she opted for a satin dress with a square neckline for her first wedding, teamed with elegant silk gloves, a delicate pouch bag and a twee veil. Instead of wearing her glossy locks down, she opted for a beehive updo and a tiara, which finished off her Cinderella look.

The couple beamed with joy as they came out of their wedding venue and Amanda held a huge display of yellow flowers in her hands.

Amanda and Les split up briefly in 2000 after Amanda had an affair with Men Behaving Badly actor Neil Morrissey, but in 2001 they seemed determined to give things a second chance. In 2002, they confirmed the end of their seven-year marriage and officially divorced the following year.

Amanda's vintage bridal look is quite surprising

Speaking candidly about her affair in her autobiography, No Holding Back - My Story, she said: "I knew in my heart that my marriage was on the rocks, but the guilt was unbearable and I hated myself for being so deceitful.

"I'd lie awake at night, feeling how wrong this was, and wanting to stop it. I absolutely hated myself."

The TV star went on to marry Chris on 10 December 2008 at St Margaret’s Church in Somerset before hosting their reception at Babington House. For her second wedding, Amanda wore a champagne-coloured Elie Saab gown which featured a lace overlay adorned with sequin detailing and a low back.
