In it, he was seen in a black suit, a red rose on his lapel, hand-in-hand with new wife Bianca, who stepped out in a gold dress and bridal veil. 

She held a rose bouquet and grinned in the sun-drenched snap, as they walked among fluttering confetti.  

Bianca’s own Instagram page featured a snap – which was uploaded earlier in the week – of her wearing a sash which read ‘Bride To Be’, gold trousers, a cowgirl hat and sipping champagne.

She captioned the photo ‘M@rriag3 tingZ’ before tagging her then-husband-to-be asking him ‘how’s those feeeeet??’ in what appeared to be a joke referring to Frankie’s stag do.

The star previously dated Ex On The Beach star Charlotte Dawson, after the pair met while filming Celebs Go Dating, but the relationship fizzled out soon after the series ended.

At the end of January, Bianca uploaded a photo of her sitting on a motorbike with Frankie. The caption read: ‘We’re getting hitched!!!! Cannot wait to spend the rest of my life with you, you AMAZING beautiful human, I LOVE you unconditionally & Eternally #biankie.’

This means Frankie must have met Bianca somewhere between October and the new year – unless they were acquainted before he appeared on Celebs Go Dating.

Frankie was a contestant on The X Factor in 2011 with Gary Barlow as his mentor, and famously announced he had the names of six girls tattooed on his bum.

Frankie was then kicked off The X Factor following an incident that was later blamed on ‘boasting about cocaine-fuelled sex sessions’.
