Brent Zillwood thought he'd never find love due to his Tourette's syndrome - until he went on The Undateables.
Despite his first words to Challis Orme across a bar being "S***head!" and "F*** you, man!", the model knew she had found her Mr Right.
And now the couple have tied the knot in the first Undateables wedding.
Film maker Brent told the Daily Mirror: "I thought I’d be searching for The One for quite a long time. And when I first saw Challis I thought she was out of my league.
“On our first date I was terrified, but she wanted to be with me.
“I loved the fact she enjoyed the whole Tourette’s thing which means I can let it out. If I did twitch she just laughed and it kind of worked for me this time.
“She’s someone who I can say absolutely anything out loud to and it will go over her head. So my Tourette’s is less worked up."
Challis said Brent's disorder was a "bit shocking at first" but she "fancied him straight away".
She said: "I’ve never been self-conscious about it. I love him for lots of reasons. We have exactly the same sense of humour.
“There is nothing I could say which would upset him and we can talk about anything.
"I wasn't really looking for love...but then I saw Brent's profile online and I thought he looked really nice."
Within six months the couple had moved in together and Brent proposed by giving her a scrapbook of memories of their relationship in it.
Challis said: "It was such a lovely present when I got to the final page and halfway down he’d written: ‘What happens next depends on how you answer my next question’.
"And then when he came back to the table he asked me to marry him. I said ‘yes’.”
Challis, 26, from Teignmouth in Devon, and Brent, 23, from Plymouth, didn't want a long engagement and eloped just before Christmas.
Challis, 26, and Brent, 23, now live in a rented flat in Hertfordshire and hope to start a family soon.
Model Challis said: "Married life is great. It cemented our relationship and we are rock solid."
The Undateables: Two Weddings and a Baby will be aired on Channel 4 on February 2 at 9pm
