SAS Who Dares Wins Ollie Ollerton ties the knot with fiancée in secret wedding

SAS: Who Dares Wins star Ollie Ollerton has tied to knot with his fiancée Laura Gander after they eloped in December 2020.

The Channel 4 star married Laura, 40, on his 50th birthday after the smitten couple decided to marry in secret.

They had planned to have a James Bond-themed ceremony in July 2020, but their wedding was cancelled due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

Not wanting to wait any longer, Ollie and Laura decided to travel to Scotland and get married at a secret wedding ceremony.

Military veteran Ollie spoke about their decision to elope to Gretna Green on December 27, as he admitted it was an "absolute mission" to pull off.

Speaking to Hello magazine, he said: "We defied all the odds and it was an absolute mission to pull it off. It was the year when it looked like we wouldn't be able to marry, and then we did.

"We did it on that day so I'll never forget our anniversary."

The lovebirds explained that their wedding could go ahead despite lockdown travel restrictions because government guidelines allowed them to travel across the border from England to Scotland.

Laura, who looked sensational in a dress by Ghost, said it was "quite surreal and stressful in the lead up" to the big day due to the ongoing changes caused by the pandemic.

She said she was "straight on to the Scottish government website checking out the restrictions", and discovered that they "could cross the border into Scotland if you were going there for a wedding".

After tying the knot at the stunning secret ceremony, the couple enjoyed their honeymoon at Lake Windermere.

In August 2020, it was revealed Ollie would not be returning for the next series of SAS: Who Dares Wins.

He decided to step away from the programme after being one of the instructors on the toughest show on telly show for five years.
