Rachel and Jamie met while studying at Oxford and were together for four years before splitting in late 2009 – soon after she landed the Countdown job as Carol Vorderman's replacement.
However, they soon got back together, with Jamie proposing on her 25th birthday in January 2011.

Although their wedding seemed to go swimmingly, Rachel admitted her father Chris did fall over after tripping on her dress.
She tells Hello! magazine: 'It was only when we were walking down the stairs to the
ceremony that I got a bit nervous.
'We were getting in position, ready to make our entrance when my dad stood on my dress. So he kind of fell over.'
Former Apprentice star Hewer, who posed for a photo with the happy couple, praised Rachel as a beautiful bride.
He said: 'Of course, Rachel is one of the most
beautiful women in England. When you've got brains and beauty combined,
then you've hit the jackpot – at least Mr Gilbert has.'
Proud father Chris told the magazine: 'I've watched every Countdown numbers game since Rachel started on the show, that's 2,448.
'Rachel has solved the numbers game when contestants have failed and she's done this over 700 times.'
