Flavia and Jimi were paired on Strictly when the former EastEnders and East is East actor competed on the show back in 2010. They announced their engagement almost a year before they tied the knot, spilling the beans in January 2013. After their wedding, Flavia posted a different photo of the pair on the steps of the St Pancras Renaissance Hotel, the skirt of her dress laid out before her while Jimi sat behind her and put his hand on her shoulder.
