A PAIR of newly-weds from Kirkintilloch were the toast of telly on Tuesday night as hundreds of thousands tuned in to see them tie the knot.

John and Jackie Clark have been hailed as one of the best ever couples to star in BBC Three’s Don’t Tell the Bride.

The series sees the groom choose every detail of his wedding, including the venue, cake and wedding dress.

John had his head in the clouds for his bride’s big day and wanted to parachute Jackie out of a plane at 10,000ft on the morning of her wedding, followed by a reception at Kirkintilloch Miners’ Welfare Club.

Viewers watched in a mixture of horror and hilarity as John laid the foundations for a wedding with a twist – including a nose-shaped cake, a hen night on the Subway and a crackers Christmas theme.
