Michelle McManus has officially tied the knot with partner Jeff Nimmo in a beautiful wedding in her native Scotland.

The Pop Idol winner, who finished first in the popular reality show in 2003, wed fiancé Jeff Nimmo in a beautiful ceremony in the Scottish Highlands.

Glaswegian Michelle stunned in a long sleeved a-line gown, while husband Jeff donned a traditional Scottish kilt.

According to reports the couple, who have been an item for two years, tied the knot in front of family and friends in Mallaig, Lochaber, after getting engaged while on holiday in Tenerife in May 2016.

"Jeff is my first proper ­boyfriend" she told The Daily Record at the time. "Up until I met him, I had gone my entire life having never met the right guy. I ­suppose the only upshot of this is I’ve never had my heart broken."

"I’ve never been happier."

Michelle held her hen party in Kilkenny, where she was joined by 16 friends for a day set to be similar to the goings on in the movie The Hangover.

"It had been in the planning for months," she told the Evening Times.

"Sixteen hens all in a whatsapp chat which, I had been banned from, plotting together to come up with the ultimate 24hour party in Ireland where the single aim was for me to wake up with a baby in my wardrobe and a tiger in my bathroom."

"After my own weekend away I'm going to stick to the strict code of silence and say what goes on hen do tour, stays on hen do tour," she concluded.

Announcing the news of her marriage on Twitter, Michelle said "Well I guess it's true....All you need is love after all".
