THIS loved-up Wigan couple are set to spook millions of viewers in BBC’s Don’t Tell the Bride.
Every bride dreams of the perfect wedding to her prince charming from being old enough to watch Disney’s ‘happily ever after’.
But Highfield’s Sophie Fowler was forced to forget any fantasies of planning the fairytale day as husband Alex took charge.
Airing tonight (Wednesday), the show follows the Fowlers as they prepare for their “spooky” themed big day.
Alex, 26, was handed thousands of pounds to fund the wedding and plan it in just three weeks - with Sophie having no idea of what was to happen on the biggest day of her life.
And it definitely didn’t go down well with the bride-to-be.
I was absolutely over the moon when we got picked for the show, it was just so surreal, it still is to think I’m going to be on TV tonightSophie Fowler
The 23-year-old explained: “I was absolutely over the moon when we got picked for the show, it was just so surreal, it still is to think I’m going to be on TV tonight.
“But I don’t think I realised the enormity of what was in store.
“My initial thought was that we would be fine as Alex has great taste and I always love what he picks.
“However I’m the organised one out of us both and so I did worry he would miss out on the little touches such as favours.
“And I didn’t anticipate how difficult it would be living apart for three weeks. I was literally clueless about what was happening with the wedding and that was the scary thing.
“Because Alex is really healthy, active and outgoing, he loves the gym, and I’m just the complete opposite so I kept having nightmares that it would be something like that.”
But despite the stress of it all, Sophie says she can’t wait to see the finished result on TV.
She added: “I’m so excited and a little nervous to watch it and to go back and relive the day but it will definitely be a weird one.
“I just couldn’t pinpoint what would happen. There were quite a few tears throughout, both happy tears and sad tears but overall the day was literally the best day of my life and I wouldn’t change that for the world.”
