And Strictly’s Amy Dowden also posted her congratulations.
Aston previously told The Sun: ‘Our date’s in there. I sit down on a regular basis now in the evening. That’s why my Instagram and Twitter have probably been a little bit quieter than usual cos planning is in full swing.
‘I’m enjoying the process of planning – my missus is a trooper, she’s brilliant, so I just have to be like “yes” or “no” and then turn up on the day. She’s a hero.’
‘If I’d had it my way I’d be ‘let’s do it, registry office, go somewhere, get it done’. She was like “no, we’re holding out. We’re doing this properly”.’
