Alisha Ryder-Jones will be getting married to fiancee Lee in Gorleston on Saturday, and says she finds the situation “so funny”.

The 34-year-old said: “I just decided to bring a TV into the room when we sit down. Everyone’s going to be looking at their phones anyway so we might as well watch it together!”

Miss Ryder-Jones is mum to Dexter, who is nine-months-old, she said: “My Dad isn’t a massive football fan, but I know he’ll be absolutely fine with is. If I’m happy, he’ll be happy, plus he’ll be looking after the little man!”

The soon-to-be Mrs Burrell continued: “I don’t know if some of our evening guests will make it, if they’re still enjoying the game where they’re watching it! But I’ve put a message on Facebook to tell everyone to drink some man-up juice and make sure they make it through for the evening do!”
