FEARNE AND JESSIE MARRY IN SECRET CEREMONY

Radio 1 DJ Fearne Cotton has tied the knot with musician Jesse Wood, the son of Rolling Stones guitarist Ronnie.

The couple, who announced their engagement late last year, were married at Richmond Register Office in south west London.

The presenter (32), and her new husband have been dating for three years and already have a 15-month-old son Rex.

Cotton wore a short-sleeved white gown, thought to be by Pucci, with a sequined detail around the neckline. The radio host also wore strappy stilettos and a jewelled headband.

She did not host her show yesterday, ahead of the ceremony, and colleague Annie Mac stood in as her replacement.

Stones star Ronnie was among the guests, accompanied by his wife Sally Humphreys whom he married last year.

In a recent interview she said: "I can't wait to be a wife. It just feels really solid. I want to have the same surname. I want to feel like we've done it properly."

Cotton, who is due to host the BBC Music Awards later this year, was previously engaged to Jesse Jenkins.

Wood - who also has two children, Arthur and Lola, from a previous relationship - wore a grey suit with a blue tie and a pale rose in his button-hole.

Earlier in the day, Cotton was seen leaving the Ritz Hotel with her father - who celebrated his birthday - in a vintage white Jaguar. In a message posted to Twitter, she called him "the coolest, most chilled out, artistic, funny, amazing dad out there".

The newlyweds used the same vehicle to head to a celebration where guests included Denise Van Outen and Amanda Byram who were with Cotton in Ibiza when she met her new husband.
