Hours before she tied the knot, she shared a video of herself performing with Foster, writing: “Exactly 13 years ago today my very first single, Somewhere Over The Rainbow, was released right after Idol.

“Today… I’m marrying the man who produced it. Life is full of beautiful coincidences, isn’t it? Thank you for taking me over the rainbow, David.”

The couple married in London after McPhee finished a run in the West End in the lead role in the musical Waitress.
