We often read about whirlwind celebrity marriages taking place in Hollywood, Pamela Anderson’s nuptials to Rick Salomon being a recent example, one that has already come close to breakdown.
This sort of thing doesn’t happen quite as often in the UK, so the news that ITV weather presenter Sian Lloyd has got hitched so quickly is a slight shock.
For those of who don’t keep up with Heat, OK or The Sun’s Bizarre column, Sian has just married racing-car boss and entrepreneur Jonathan Ashman after a relationship of just a few months.
You may remember that Sian stepped out with Lib Dem oddity Lembit Opik for a while, before they split and he transferred his allegiance to Cheeky Girl Gabriela Irmia – you couldn’t make it up.
Now I’m sure Sian and Jonathan are very much in love and they will have a long and happy life together, but one wonders what the haste to get spliced is.
Fortunately, given that there were only 7 people at the ceremony, we may be spared the technicolour glory of the marriage in the pages of OK or Hello.
