Lacey who confessed to OK! magazine that she was "on cloud nine" admitted she was so excited on her big day that she didn't sleep until 5am. She explained: "On the day I couldn't wait to get down the aisle and marry Matt.

"I was like, hurry up, I want to get married! I wasn't nervous walking down the aisle, which was strange as I can't walk down a red carpet without wanting the ground to swallow me up."
