Cat Deeley and Patrick Kielty are now husband and wife

Cat Deeley and new husband Patrick Kielty jetted off to Venice for their honeymoon after getting hitched in Rome at the end of September.

The couple have been snapped enjoying a scenic boat ride, which took them under the historic Bridge Of Sighs.

‘It was really lovely to see two people who are so obviously madly in love. When they’d finished the trip, Patrick leaped out and offered his hand to help her ashore,’ says a source.

‘There aren’t many more romantic places than Venice in the autumn.’

Cat, 35, and Patrick, 41, met when they presented BBC show Fame Academy together in 2002 and stayed close friends for a number of years.

They married at St Isidore’s College Church in Rome in front of 60 of their loved ones.

‘It was a beautiful ceremony, just close friends and family,’ the insider tells the Daily Mirror. 

‘We only found out at the last minute. It was a really perfect day.’
