Showing off her sun-kissed arms, the bronzed beauty kept her face out of the sun with a Red Bull baseball cap.

The Heart FM presenter kept her eyes protected with a pair of oversized gold-rimmed shades, which sat upon her makeup-free face.

Meanwhile, last-minute preparations are being made to the outside of the church where Ant and Anne-Marie will marry, as rainy conditions threaten to put a dampener on the day.

Flower walls and arches around the site in the sleepy Hampshire village where the ‘simple and beautiful’ nuptials are taking place were being perfected in the morning as the drizzle set in.

It comes after insiders told The Sun: ‘Neither of them want the razzmatazz of a showbiz wedding’, and insisted the day will be ‘simple and beautiful’. 

Around 100 guests, including Holly Willoughby, Phillip Schofield, Stephen Mulhern and Ant’s Best Man Dec have been reported to be attending.

Ant is reportedly spending £100,000 on hotel bills to ensure the couple’s guests enjoy the wedding, which will take place over two days – starting this Friday.

The Mail on Sunday reported the TV veteran has told them to send him their spa bills, which include £100 manicures, to his £5,000 per night honeymoon suite.

The couple’s choice of reception venue appeals to celebrities due to its walled gardens offering privacy to guests.

The spacious grounds also boast ancient woodlands, tranquil gardens and a beautiful lake, offering the perfect backdrop to wedding pictures.

Ant proposed to Anne-Marie on Christmas Eve, having dated since March 2018.

During the last series of I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here last December, the Geordie gushed over his fiancée, saying his perfect night in was with Anne-Marie and her two children from her previous marriage. 

Anne-Marie, who split with ex-husband Scott in October that year, helped Ant recover from his ‘lowest depths’ after a spate of personal problems, culminating with a drink-driving charge in 2018.

Dec was also Ant’s Best Man at Ant’s first marriage to former wife Lisa Armstrong in 2006.

Ant and Lisa finalised their divorce in 2018 after ending their 11-year marriage in 2017. Ant worked with Anne-Marie for several years before they started dating.

The former PA was employed for the same London-based management company as Ali Astall, Dec’s wife, for a decade, however she only began working closely with Ant since 2017.
