Tyler West also spoke to the happy couple’s friends and family, as Gavin’s sister told him: ‘I’m very excited for them both, can’t wait. It’s very special to be able to celebrate with them both.’

Luke’s mum Ann, said: ‘I’m feeling well over the moon because this is my last baby, I’m not having anymore! And he’s finally made me happy by getting married but you know what? The best thing is Gav.’

Speaking about her future son-in-law, she said: ‘Gav is, he’s just another son. That’s all I can say to you and I’m so happy. At this moment in my life, it’s the best thing that’s ever happened. I just can’t tell you, I’ve been so excited but at the same time, trying to hold back because I want to be strong for them you know. I want to be there, I want to be their backbone basically.’

Trained celebrant Aled Jones, also told Lorraine that being a celebrant is ‘the most joyful thing you can do’ as he shared his advice with her, live from his Classic FM studio.

After being helped by stylist Mark Heyes to pick out their suits for the big day, Lorraine told viewers: ‘Without further ado, let’s welcome our grooms Luke and Gavin!’ as they entered the studio on the arms of their mothers.

Opening the ceremony, Lorraine said: ‘Luke and Gavin, we’ve done all of the legal paperwork and now we’re ready to begin our blessing. We’ve all gathered here today, with your friends and family to witness your commitment to one another and to celebrate the beautiful love that you hold in your hearts both of you. It’s a real privilege for me to be a witness to your wedding and to show people across the country that love is love.’
