How did Kelvin Fletcher and Liz Marsland meet and marry?

Kelvin met his actress wife when they were children. In fact the couple shared their first kiss when Eliza was only eight years old.

They grew up just streets apart in Royton, Lancashire, but they only got together two years after she has finished university.

Despite this, Kelvin has said he knew she was the one when he met first met her and that she completed him. The childhood sweethearts tied the knot in 2015, after Kelvin proposed on the beach during a romantic trip to Wales.

They wed in a lavish ceremony, reportedly costing £55,000, at London’s One Mayfair, a year to the day he had proposed.

Lots of celebrity guests were in attendance including Mark Wright and Michelle Keegan, as well as several Emmerdale stars and rugby league players.

After the ceremony St Helens’ rugby legend Paul Sculthorpe tweeted: “Thanks to @kelvin_fletcher and the stunning Liz for a great time at their wedding…punching above ur weight there laaad!!”

And England international George Burgess – who flew in from Australia with his girlfriend Joanna Maquelle King to be at the ceremony – wrote: “What a great few days seeing me great friends @kelvin_fletcher + @littlepintsize tie the knot”.

After the wedding they jetted to Rome for a honeymoon, but it turned out to be a special night in more ways than one…
