Olympic gold medal-winning boxer Luke Campbell showed his romantic side by sorting a surprise musical performance for his bride at their wedding.

Campbell, 27, arranged for pop group McBusted to play a 45-minute set at their wedding reception, much to the surprise, and delight, of wife Lynsey.

"It was hard work to keep it a secret - Lynsey was blown away," Campbell, who is friends with McBusted member Danny Jones, told Hello! magazine.external-link

"It was such an honour," added Lynsey.

The pair, who have been together for nine years, took their vows in a pavilion next to Princess Castle at Disneyland in Florida.

They then headed back to Hull for the reception, where McBusted entertained the crowd by playing seven songs.

Campbell, who has won all 12 professional fights at lightweight after winning bantamweight gold at the London 2012 Olympics, admitted he had a few tears at the wedding "but then manned up".

"I saw a couple of people laughing at me out of the corner of my eye and pulled myself together," he added.
