They announced their engagement in October 2017, with the TV star revealing he had sweetly asked the approval of his sons with late reality TV star Jade Goody.
Speaking to HELLO! magazine, ahead of the wedding, Jeff gushed: ‘I couldn’t be happier. This isn’t just any wedding, this is a really special one.’

Last June, Jeff told MailOnline that Kate was a wonderful stepmother to his boys.
He said: ‘Kate has adjusted very well now to becoming a step mum and what it entails.
‘And the sacrifices that have to be made in order to give the children what they need first and for most.
‘We spend some lovely family time together as the four of us. I personally love it when Kate does things with the boys when I’m not around.’
