Reality TV star Jade Goody has married her fiancé Jack Tweed at Down Hall country house in Essex today.

Her publicist Max Clifford said the couple received a standing ovation after they exchanged vows.

Jade arrived 45 minutes late for the ceremony and was in tears during the event, Clifford told waiting reporters.

He confirmed the Big Brother star had been in "a lot of pain" on Saturday night after "overdoing it", but he confirmed she had been like "a little one that's just woken up on Christmas Day" on the day of her wedding.

"It was lovely. The chapel was absolutely beautiful and I imagine there must be close to 200 people there," he added.

"When they came out having signed the register they got a standing ovation from everybody there. It was just a very heart-rending, happy ceremony with lots of tears and lots of smiles and lots of laughter."

The 27-year-old is suffering from terminal cancer and was told recently she may only have a few months to live.

Earlier in the week the Ministry of Justice agreed to relax the terms of her husband's curfew so he can spend his wedding night with the Big Brother star.

Tweed, 21, was released early from Wayland prison in Norfolk last month.
