He told Hello! Magazine that the "traditional" wedding was the best day of his life.

"Chloe and I are both traditional in our views and our values," he said.

"For me, marriage is the union of a man and a woman before God, so it meant a lot to us to have a proper church service with hymns."

JLS first appeared on The X Factor in 2008 finishing second to Alexandra Burke.

They had five number one singles, released four studio albums but broke up after a series of farewell concerts at the end of 2013.

Gill is interested in farming and featured on the BBC's Countryfile last year.

He also won the Strictly Come Dancing Christmas special in 2012.
