Strictly dancer Flavia Cacace weds Jimi Mistry

Former Strictly Come Dancing pro Flavia Cacace has married Coronation Street actor Jimi Mistry at London’s St Pancras Renaissance Hotel.

The 34-year-old, who quit the main series following her victory with Louis Smith in 2012, posted a photo of herself and Jimi in their wedding gear sitting on the hotel stairs.

She told her followers: “Had the most amazing day with family & friends @StPancrasRen xxx” – as well as changing her name on the social networking site to Flavia Cacace-Mistry.

The dancer received messages of congratulation from former partners and other show pros, including her 2011 partner Russell Grant, who said:  “Just to let you know I’m in tears of happiness in my dressing room @lighthousepanto.”

Jimi and Flavia met after they were paired on the 2010 series of the show, making it to the seventh week of the competition before being eliminated.

She previously dated fellow Strictly professional Vincent Simone – seen more recently on I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here – as well as her 2007 partner Matt Di Angelo.

It is the second marriage for Jimi – currently starring as fitness coach Khalid Nazir in Corrie.

The actor split from first wife Meg Leonard – with whom he has a 12-year-old daughter, Elin – in 2010 after being married for nine years.

Flavia did not take part in the most recent series of Strictly but recently returned to the dancefloor for the Christmas special, which she won with partner Rufus Hound.
