Rachel Riley marries Strictly Pasha Kovalev is secret Vegas wedding
According to The Sun, Countdown star Rachel Riley married Strictly Come Dancing star Pasha Kovalev in a secret Las Vegas ceremony.
It’s claimed pregnant Rachel, 33, and Pasha, 39, who met BBC’s Strictly, kept friends and family in the dark over the ceremony.
The couple reportedly eloped to Las Vegas on Friday after previously insisting they had no plans to get married.
Despite the secrecy, sources insist their relatives are “delighted” over the wedding.
An insider told the publication: “They wanted to ensure it was just the two of them and everything was kept as quiet as possible.
“They did it in complete secrecy — even most of their friends and family had no idea they were going there to get married.
“By keeping everything a closely guarded secret, they pulled it off and surprised their loved ones. Naturally, everyone is delighted.”
Rachel was partnered with professional dancer Pasha during series 11 of Strictly in 2013.
However, the pair were eliminated in week five.
Weeks after the show, Rachel announced she was splitting from husband Jamie Gilbert after 16 months of marriage.
Rachel announced last month that her and Pasha were expecting their first child.
Russian Pasha quit Strictly in February after eight series to focus on his relationship and look for “new challenges”.
We can’t wait to see their wedding pictures!
