Got To Dance judge and Diversity frontman Ashley Banjo married his girlfriend of 6 years Francesca  in Essex this weekend.

The pair got engaged last October after Ashley apparently popped the question on Twitter. The 26-year old choreographer and his new bride shared a photo on the dance group Diversity’s Facebook page with fans.

The celebrity dancer looked very proud in the photo he shared as they newlyweds stood side-by-side. Ashley wore a three-piece grey suit with a dusty pink tie.

Francesca, who is also a dancer, chose a beautiful white lace gown for their sun-soaked wedding day.

Ashley wrote after the big day:  "The first step into the rest of our lives. The first step into forever… Yesterday I married my soulmate."
