Who is Bella Mackie?

In the piece she reveals that she was married before to a man she met when she was 28 – but was divorced within two years.

When did Bella Mackie marry Greg James

In a change from tradition, Bella asked Greg to marry her in February 2018.

Their engagement was a secret until June 2018, when Greg revealed they were getting married.

Taking to Instagram he shared: “Oh while we’re doing announcements, here’s something else…I’m having the time of my life and enjoying my work more than ever.

“I feel really content and it’s nice to have my shit together before I undertake a huge new work challenge.

“One of the main reasons for this happiness is because I met this person.

“This is Bella and in February she asked me to marry her.

“I said yes immediately because she is the smartest, funniest and most beautiful person I’ve ever met.

“The only problem is she loves staying up into the early hours drinking as much as I do and this is not conducive with 5am alarms. That said, it’s been quite a year.”

The couple got married in September 2018, with Greg announcing the happy news on social media.

Sharing four pictures of their big day, he said: “Bella and I got married and it was the most incredible day of my life.

“I think it was up there for her too.

“She is the best thing ever and I feel like I might actually burst with happiness.”

Bella wore a floor-length yellow gown, while husband Greg chose a navy suit for his wedding day.
