"What a sad world we live in where people tear strips off each other for no reason. I also had no say over what any guest wore to my wedding, I don't know who does have a say but considering my brother's girlfriend is one of the most beautiful women in the world she can wear anything and still look stunning as she did at my wedding."

"There's enough hate in the world without people writing nasty stuff about people they don't know.” Ruth also defended her own wedding dress, saying she had lost three stone for her big day. "I loved my wedding dress, I felt like a princess,” she wrote.

“I also lost 3st to feel as beautiful as I did in it, that was hard work when I'm a naturally chunky girl, not everyone needs to be a size 10 to get married.” Liam and Cheryl have been dating since December, but according to reports Cheryl’s appearance at Ruth’s wedding won over doubters in the Payne family about their romance.
