Lorraine and Steve have been happily married since 1992

Lorraine and Steve were married in September 1992, and she has often spoken out about her big day, admitting the one thing she regrets is her choice of wedding dress.

"At my wedding, it was such a small one, it was wee, it really was," she said. "All I wanted was men in kilts and pipers. There was no real plan! It was very, very traditional.

“My dress... Uyuy-yuy. It was 1992 so it was kind of like a Princess Diana bouffant thing with big sleeves – oh God. We could all get in it! We could all fit in my dress. I've still got it."
