BRITAIN's Got Talent star Jacob Jones who proposed LIVE on stage three years ago has married his fiancée.
The show's first ever on stage proposal had Simon Cowell in tears in 2019 after the auditioning singer got down on one knee to ask girlfriend Faye Compton to marry him.
Faye said she wanted to invite BGT stars Simon and the other judges – Alesha Dixon, Amanda Holden and David Walliams – who witnessed their special moment, as 1220 days later they officially tied the knot at Cooling Castle Barn in Kent.
Faye said: "We wanted to invite them, but we didn’t know how to get in touch with them.
And she joked: "Hopefully Simon will still send us a gift. A trip to the Maldives would be lovely."
Nervous Jacob, from Surrey, impressed the judges with his voice in 2019 but admitted there was one other thing he wanted to do.
