Ant McPartlin and Anne-Marie Corbett's wedding is just hours away and the vicar marrying the happy couple has expressed her joy at sharing the experience of their nuptials this weekend.

I'm A Celebrity host Ant, 45, will tie the knot with Anne-Marie Corbett, 43, on Saturday in a "simple and beautiful" ceremony featuring 100 guests.

The duo will exchange vows at St Michael's Church, Heckfield after reportedly initially wanting to marry abroad – and a lorry full to the brim with flowers has already arrived at the destination.

The vicar who will oversee the ceremony has told Daily Star how she is looking forward to being a part of the lovebirds’ special day.

Rev'd Canon Dr Marion de Quidt to the Parish of Heckfield with Mattingley and Rotherwick said: "I’m looking forward to sharing in their joy, and I’m looking forward to the blessings for their future.

"That’s all I can say right now, but God bless, it’s going to be a wonderful time."

The couple are expecting 100 guests at their exclusive ceremony, including TV personalities like Holly Willoughby, Phillip Schofield, Stephen Mulhern – and, of course, Ant’s best man Declan Donnelly.

Insiders told The Sun that Ant and Anne-Marie don’t want the "razzmatazz of a showbiz wedding", and instead want the focus on a "simple and beautiful day".

Villagers close to where the wedding will take place have already been sharing their first impressions of the venue, with one commenting: "As soon as people heard there were barriers going up at the church we sort of guessed that it was going to be a big wedding.

"I am sure many people will come out to see and wish them the best."

The star-studded guest list will be treated to £1,000 per night rooms and encouraged to bill the use of hotel spa facilities to the happy couple’s honeymoon suite.

The wedding ceremony itself will take place at St Michael’s Church in Heckfield, with a stunning rural exterior, before the couple head over to Heckfield Place for the lavish reception.

The stunning hotel grounds are surrounded by lush woodland, gardens and meadows – and it looks like the perfect location for a romantic getaway.

Saturday Night Takeaway star Ant proposed to his fiancée last Christmas, after they originally met in 2017 when Anne-Marie was Ant’s assistant.

His first wedding to ex-wife Lisa Armstrong was a very different celebration than the one which will take place this weekend, as he previously exchanged vows at Cliveden House Hotel in Bucks – followed by a huge firework display.

He also enjoyed a booze-fuelled stag night back in 2006, but this time around has opted for a more laid-back, booze-free event.
