Lineker marries model girlfriend

Lineker marries model girlfriend

Footballer turned pundit Gary Lineker married his model girlfriend Danielle Bux today.

A spokeswoman for Bux said the couple wed in Ravello, Italy, but refused to give any further details.

The bride wore a full-length white gown and veil and the groom a dark suit with a red rose buttonhole.

Bux, a former Virgin Atlantic air stewardess who has become a successful lingerie model, has been dating the 'Match Of The Day' host for two years.

She came third in the latest series of television cooking show 'Hell's Kitchen' and has also appeared as a panellist on lunchtime chat show 'Loose Women'.

It is Lineker's second marriage. He was divorced in 2006 from Michelle, the mother of his four sons, after 20 years of marriage.

Bux, 30, who has a daughter from a previous relationship, has not been married before.

Lineker, 48, was never booked, sent off or made the subject of any FA disciplinary proceedings during his 17-year stint at clubs including Leicester City, Everton, Barcelona and Tottenham.

He now stars in advertisements for Walkers crisps which poke fun at his nice-guy image.
