Fleur East has tied the knot with her long-term partner Marcel Badiane-Robin.

The former X-Factor star, 31, who gave a special performance to celebrate 75 years of BFBS at the Army v Navy rugby match at Twickenham in May, wed fashion designer Badiane-Robin at a glamorous ceremony in Morocco.

The couple, who have been together for nine years, tied the knot at a secluded venue in the Atlas Mountains surrounded by some of their famous friends, including 'I'm A Celeb' campmate Harry Redknapp and former JLS singer JB Gill.

One of Fleur's final gigs before getting married was to more than 80,000 military fans at Twickenham, where she performed ‘Uptown Funk’ before treating the audience to a rendition of ‘Sax’ - the track that made her a household name.

The performance marked the special anniversary for the British Forces Broadcasting Service (BFBS) which has been providing radio, television programmes and, more recently, digital services for Her Majesty's Armed Forces, and their dependents worldwide for the past 75 years.

 

Just before the Twickenham match began, the I'm A Celebrity star sang the national anthem. Following her rendition, Fleur said: 

“The minute I sang the national anthem at the end it was like everyone was holding their breath before I started.

“I felt a real responsibility to lead the crowd. It was an incredible feeling.”

Fleur said that performing at Twickenham was a special experience, adding:

“I felt real privilege and an honour to be here. It’s such a special occasion – 75 years of BFBS.”
