British artistic gymnast Kelly Simm said: “Massive congratulations to you all.”

Beth and her husband Andy tied the knot in 2018 after the first meeting at the Rio Olympics in 2016, where Beth was presenting for the BBC.

The ceremony came two years after Beth broke two bones in her back while starring on Channel 4’s reality show The Jump.

Just two weeks into the show, Beth crashed into a barrier and was forced to pull out of the competition when she underwent medical treatment.

Beth had surgery on her neck and spinal chord and said after the incident: “I’m not sure I’ll ever be 100 per cent again.

“The effects of my accident still interrupt my daily life and, aside from the severe physical injuries at the start, the hardest part of the recovery process has been the psychological element – dealing with and processing the whole accident and the aftermath of what happened. “

Before that, Beth appeared in ITV’s Dancing On Ice, where she saw off competition from boxer Luke Campbell and actor Matt Lapinskas to win the eighth series of the show in 2013.

The sportswoman grew up in Cheshire but was born in Johannesburg.

After announcing her retirement in 2013, Beth continued a career in the spotlight with a series of presenting jobs.
