Take That's Gary Barlow stuns happy couple at Formby wedding

Gary stunned bride Chelsee Cousins and groom Dean Siadankay at Formby Hall with a rendition of A Million Love Songs.

A friend told Granada reports: "They are a beautiful couple inside and out with two fabulous children Marcus, 5 and Layla 2."
