Emmerdale star Liam Fox weds university girlfriend Joanna Hudson surrounded by famous pals

Emmerdale actor Liam Fox, 49, and Joanna Hudson, 44, have become husband and wife.

The soap star – who plays Dan Spencer in the Yorkshire based show – wed Joanna at Peckforton Castle in Cheshire surrounded by their famous pals – including Denise Van Outen and a number of the Emmerdale castmembers.

And it sounds like it was a night to remember for all involved as Dan shared to OK! magazine: “We got carried away!”

“It was everything I’d hoped for an more, so I’m chuffed. Me and JoJo were the last ones on the dance floor at 2.50am”, the newlywed explained.

Gushing over his bride, the cheeky chap shared that she looked “well fit” as she walked down the aisle and Joanne shared that their vows were emotional as she added: “He was looking at me crying so I was trying so hard to hold back the tears too.”

The smitten pair met at Salford university 27 years ago and Dan bent the knee ten-months ago.

The wedding comes after Joanna defeated a rare autoimmune disease, which meant she “didn’t care about the expense” of the nuptials after she nearly died from a tumor in 2015.

Last year, the actress revealed: “I was seriously ill in 2015 and nearly lost my life, which makes me appreciate what I have with Liam even more.

“I nearly died from a tumour; when it was discovered, I was weeks away from death.

“I realised something was wrong when I started getting double vision so I went to Specsavers who gave me glasses, but that didn’t help.

“I was eventually referred to a consultant and was diagnosed with myasthenia gravis [a rare autoimmune disease that causes muscle weakness].”

Joanna went on to explain how a consultant gave her a scan and discovered that the tumor was growing near her heart.

Luckily, after having it removed she made a full recovery three months later.
