Happy Tuesday all! The week is slowly moving on, it will be the weekend soon, and remember, it’s nearly Christmas! I do accept presents 😉
Anyway some proper news, apparently Vanessa is going to stop partying *shock*
Vanessa told the HELLO magazine: “I’d been partying way too much, not taking care of myself and I felt rubbish. We’re all very honest with one another and we will sit each other down and say, ‘This is getting out of control’.
“If I hadn’t had them, it would have been so easy to have gone off the rails and kept up the partying until it became a problem. You need people around you to say, ‘Right, this is too much now,’ and fortunately, I have that.”
The brunette beauty said she started eating more healthily, reining in the nights out and working with a personal trainer three times a week. Vanessa has now dropped a dress size in five months.
She added: “I have a trainer who gets me running, doing squats, lifting weights, and sometimes I feel like I can’t breathe, it’s so hard.
“Afterwards, though, I feel amazing and it’s great when you start seeing the results. I’m never going to have a small bum, but it’s toned now and that makes me happy.”
This is the moment that beaming JLS heart throb Marvin Humes married Saturdays beautyRochelle Wiseman – in the showbiz wedding of the year.
Their much talked about wedding took place at Oxfordshire’s grand and historic Blenheim Palace and HELLO! was the only publication invited to the star-studded ceremony and reception.
As a special surprise for the newlyweds, guests including Olly Murs, Alexandra Burke and Marvin and Rochelle’s band mates took to the stage to perform some of the couple’s favourite songs.
The JLS boys and The Saturdays girls joined the 400 guests for the wedding which had a classy ‘black and white’ dress code.
Celebrities at the fairytale affair on Friday, July 27 included Tulisa Contostavlos, Pixie Lott, Girls Aloud’s Nicola Roberts, Harry Styles, Liam Payne and Niall Horan from One Direction, rapper Chipmunk and Blue’s Simon Webbe.
They all partied until 2.30am in a specially erected marquee that had been transformed into a glittering nightclub.
In a world exclusive interview Marvin, 27, relives the moment he first set eyes on his 23-year-old bride in her stunning Vera Wang gown as she walked up the aisle.
“When the music started up and I knew Rochelle had arrived, I was desperate to turn around and look at her. We hadn’t spoken all day and had spent the previous night apart. I’d missed her and I couldn’t wait to see her.
“But so many people had said to me that I shouldn’t turn around – that it was unlucky.
“Then, when I looked to my left and she was there, oh man, she looked unbelievable; more beautiful than I’ve ever seen her look. Her face, her smile, the dress, everything … She was absolutely stunning,” he tells HELLO!
Rochelle, who was given away by football legend Paul Ince, whom she calls her ‘uncle’ in the absence of her natural dad with whom she’s had little contact, changed for the evening’s celebrations into a short Oscar de la Renta design.
And whilst the bride had two dresses, Marvin reveals how he had opted to have two rings – a plain platinum band and a “blinged up” diamond baguette for special occasions.
Rochelle said she was overcome with emotions on her big day telling HELLO!:
“It just hit me, what we were saying to each other. It was all so overwhelming, I couldn’t stop myself from crying.
“I looked at Marvin and his eyes were glassy. I kept thinking he might go too, but he held it down.”

Last Friday was not only the special day for the dazzling London 2012 Olympic opening ceremony.
Some 70 miles north of London’s Stratford district, at Oxfordshire’s grand stately home Blenheim Palace, pop princess Rochelle Wiseman of hit girlband The Saturdays married JLS star Marvin Humes in a fairytale ceremony and HELLO! was there to capture every magical moment.
Months of secret planning had gone into ensuring all the intricate details of the celebrations remained a surprise for all but the closest of the 250 family members and friends who joined the couple during the day and the further 150 glamorous guests who arrived for the fun-packed evening festivities.
Among the famous faces to attend the stylish black-tie wedding were The X Factor‘s Tulisa Contostavlos, singers Olly Murs, Pixie Lott, Alexandra Burke and Diana Vickers, DJ Reggie Yates.
Also wishing the couple well were Girls Aloud’s Nicola Roberts, Blue star Simon Webbe, Harry Styles, Liam Payne and Niall Horan of boyband One Direction and rappers Chipmunk and Wretch 32.
The gorgeous bride and groom – who got engaged on New Year’s Eve while in the Maldives, where Marvin presented Rochelle with a heart-shaped diamond ring – had been adamant that their nuptials should reflect their personalities.
“One of the things I love most about Marvin is that he is so traditional, because so am I,” Rochelle, 23, told HELLO!, when we caught up with her “backstage” at Blenheim on the morning of the wedding.
Rochelle told HELLO! that the moment Marvin popped the question, she knew there was only one place she would be heading to buy her wedding dress.
“It had to be Vera Wang. Marvin proposed two days into a ten-day holiday and I was itching to get back so I could go and find my dress. To me, Vera Wang’s designs are the ultimate. I knew I’d find my dream dress in her collection and I did.”
Speaking of her bridesmaids, who included her fellow The Saturdays band members Una Healy, Mollie King, Frankie Sandford and Vanessa White, Rochelle revealed:
“I feel so close to these girls. We’ve been on such a high – I’m so lucky to have them in my life.”
Across the glorious courtyards of Blenheim, husband-to-be Marvin and his groomsmen were getting ready.
Like Rochelle, they revealed to HELLO!, there was a story regarding the undergarments they wore beneath their wedding attire.
“We’ve had monogrammed boxer shorts made with my and Rochelle’s ‘R&M’ logo on,” confided Marvin, 27.
Marvin’s party consisted of 11 friends including his JLS bandmates Aston Merrygold, Jonathan “JB” Gill and Oritsé Williams.
“All my groomsmen are very special to me and I know they’re looking out for me today and want me and Rochelle to have the best day ever,” said Marvin.
A string quartet was playing as guests took their seats in an elegant room filled with fragrance, courtesy of the arrangements of cream roses and summer foliage from celebrity florist Rob Van Helden, a favourite with stars such as Sir Elton John.
Meanwhile, the beautiful bride was putting the finishing touches to her outfit, with her matron of honour Laura adjusting the full-length veil that trailed so beautifully behind her stunning designer dress.
“I feel so blessed to have Rochelle in my life. She is such a gorgeous person, inside and out, but I have never seen her look more beautiful or serene than she does today,” Laura told us.

Sorry for the delay in posting this, been in Bournemouth for Wave 105 – Live! I’m sure those on our twitter/facebook accounts have seen a couple of pictures that I posted from the event!
Una and Ben and of course baby Aoife appeared in the magazine this week, for an exclusive Interview and adorable pictures of the new family! The magazine is out now to buy in shops, but Hello have published a few pictures and snippets from the article.
The Saturdays star Una Healy and her England rugby star fiancé Ben Foden have given an exclusive interview and photos to HELLO! magazine following the birth of their first child, daughter Aoife Belle Foden.
Speaking for the first time since Aoife’s arrival on March 13, they reveal all about the birth and how the baby has transformed their lives.
And they talk for the first time about a health scare endured when the baby was just 24 hours old.
Besotted new mum Una tells HELLO!: “There hasn’t been a dull moment since she was born, what with the feeding and the changing and the visitors and the hours we spend just gazing at her, taking in every little expression.
“During the night, I’ll wake up, even when she’s sound asleep, and sneak a peek.
“She’ll be lying there, with her tiny hands up by her face – she’s so ladylike – and my heart could burst with love for her.”
In the interview, Ben reveals that he cried when he met his daughter for the first time.
“I’m not one to blub, but I did well up the first time I set eyes on her,” he says. “Mainly, though, I just felt really, really excited.”
“I’m usually really laid back, but when Aoife was being lifted out, I really couldn’t contain myself.
“I couldn’t wait to hold her. I felt a bit bad because I just kind of abandoned Una and went rushing over. I cut the umbilical cord and that was really special.”
But the couple also revealed that their tiny daughter had a health scare just 24 hours after being born.
“Aoife had some fluid stuck in her lungs and when we fed her, she kept bringing it up, but on this occasion it was forcefully. Then she started choking and was holding her breath,” explains Ben.
“We went into panic and pushed the emergency button and the next thing we knew, our baby was whisked away and there were alarm bells ringing and staff running around.”
“I was screaming,” adds Una. “It was the worst moment of my life. There’s this precious little person who you would die for and you just can’t bear to think of anything happening to her.”
Thankfully, the fluid was released and Aoife was fine.
To read more of the interview, including what Una’s bandmates bought for the baby, her thoughts on losing the pregnancy weight and the inspiration behind Aoife’s traditional Irish name, pick up the latest copy of HELLO!, out now.
