He swore he'd never settle down, but then Steve Jones met Phylicia Jackson
He’s dated some of Hollywood’s hottest ladies, but now Steve Jones has taken his Grade A loins off the market by secretly, gasp, marrying his girlfriend.
That’s right, the Welsh TV presenter – who previously worked his charms on a host of famous ladies including Halle Berry, Fearne Cotton and Hayden Panettiere – tied the knot with model Phylicia Jackson on Monday.
So that means no hope of a reconciliation with Pamela Anderson then, after the Baywatch babe couldn’t get enough of his charms when they famously used to date on and off in the swinging, well, 2000s.
Steve, 37, stunned his fans, as well as his exes, no doubt, when he wed Phylicia in a low-key ceremony at the Mayfair Library in London and held a reception near Tower Bridge, just one month after he popped the question.
He has famously always rejected the idea of settling down. In 2009 he said: ‘I don’t want a relationship. On a basic level, I just like girls. It’s insane to believe there is one person for you. There’s, like, three billion out there.’
So, at the risk of sounding like Big Brother’s Nikki Grahame, who IS Phylicia Jackson?
The Las Vegas-born stunner who made an honest man of Steve, has done modelling campaigns for Levi Strauss as well as being a regular in magazines including wedding theme and bikini shoots. A source told The Mirror: ‘It might seem to have happened incredibly quickly to outsiders given that they only had a few weeks to plan the entire day but they couldn’t be happier. They spent two months on a road trip around Europe over the summer which is when Steve decided she really was the one.’
Steve proposed in front of Phylicia’s family in Italy one month ago.
The bride looked stunning in a flowing cream dress while Steve, who shot to fame on Channel 4 weekend music show T4, looked hot to trot in a grey suit.
Forget about throwing confetti. The blushing bride gave the game away by posting a picture of herself on Instagram with the caption ‘Mrs Jackson-Jones’.
Earlier she had posted a picture of them both with her wearing her engagement ring and wrote: ‘Well, it’s been a perfect summer and even more perfect…WE’RE ENGAGED!!!! Surrounded by our dearest friends and family he popped the question at dinner last night and there wasn’t a dry eye in the house. I’m living a real dream.’
Congrats to the happy couple from Team Now. How soon until we hear the pitter-patter of tiny feet? Gosh, they’d be cute!
