Eliza and Kevin were married in a romantic wedding ceremony in November last year, in front of guests including Michelle Keegan, and his Emmerdale co-stars. Speaking exclusively to HELLO!, Kelvin said he felt "complete" after marrying the girl of his dreams.

"I knew I wanted to marry Liz the day I met her. Deep down I knew she was The One," said the 31-year-old actor, who plays Andy Sugden in the long-running soap.

"The image of Liz coming towards me up the aisle will live with me forever. She took my breath away. She looked so beautiful."

The proud groom added: "We didn't need a piece of paper to prove anything because we know we love each other. But now that it's here, it feels so right," he added. "Marriage completes us."
