James Sutton will get married this weekend.

The former "Hollyoaks" star - who played John Paul McQueen in the Channel 4 soap - and his fiancée Rachael Collin will tie the knot near the town of Gillingham in Dorset, and while the couple are "excited" about their upcoming nuptials, the ex-"Emmerdale" actor is expecting their big day to be a wash out.

He wrote on Twitter: "We've managed to pick the wettest weekend of the last 12 months to get married on. So that's nice. And good luck too, apparently.

"Thanks for the kind words, @RachaelCollin1 and I are the most excited humans right now (sic)"

James" former "Hollyoaks" co-star Bronagh Waugh (Cheryl Brady) jokingly apologised for her namesake Storm Bronagh, which has brought flash flooding and strong winds to parts of the UK, but offered to supply his guests with some big umbrellas to protect them from the elements.

James confirmed in February 2017 that he was to marry Rachael, after the pair met at Glastonbury when he lent her his electric pump.

He said: "I was watching this girl pumping up an air bed with a foot pump for about half an hour and I thought, "I've got an ­electric pump in my bag, I could be a hero here","

he laughed.

"So, I went over and said, "Excuse me, do you want to borrow my pump?"

"And we have been pretty much inseparable ever since."

James previously popped the question to ex Kit Williams in Barbados in 2015, but they split just two months after she accepted his proposal.

He previously said: "I got engaged the first time I think for the wrong reasons, not because I was so in love.

"Kit is an amazing girl and there was no one else involved. We got back from our holiday and I had a nagging feeling it wasn't right. We split up soon after."
