ig Brother's first ever winner Craig Phillips has got married.

The 46-year-old builder - who was crowned the champion of the civilian version of the reality TV show back in 2000 - tied the knot with Laura Sherriff today (09.02.18) at Cheshire's Peckforton Castle in front of 200 of the couple's friends and family.

The DIY expert and his new wife asked their guests not to buy them any presents in celebration of their new relationship status and, instead, donate money to Helen and Douglas House, a hospice that provided care to Laura's brother when he was diagnosed with a brain tumour shortly after birth and offered support to her family.

Laura will also be auctioning her wedding dress to raise funds for the hospice.

Their Just Giving page has already surpassed the target and has raised £3,080.00 for the cause https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/inlovingmemoryofdanny.

This isn't the first time Craig has done his bit for charity as he famously gave away his "Big Brother" winnings to help a family friend pay for her medical treatment.

The couple will now jet off to Colorado to enjoy a snowboarding break before they'll return to Liverpool to continue their dream property build in Prescot.

They're also working towards the launch of their latest project, Mr and Mrs DIY, which will see the couple share their tips and hacks on household and garden jobs.

The pair are hoping to encourage more people - men and women - to pick up the tools.
