Jodie Marsh's love life has gone through the roof this year, it's safe to say.

After a whirlwind romance with scrap dealer James Placido, Jodie and her man tied the knot in a secret, beachside ceremony. We hadn't even realised she had a boyfriend when Jodie announced the news in August.

Now, 36-year-old Jodie opens up to Reveal about just how loved up she is.

Look at that loved-up smile! Jodie Marsh is super happy right now.

"I am loving every second of being a wife. All those sh*t cheesy things that make you think: 'Oh f**k off'…. Like the phrase 'he completes me.' I've become that person!" Gushes Jodie.

"James is the best man in the entire world. I can't praise him enough. He's just heaven."

Jodie gets all coy when talking about her new hubby James.

Prior to meeting her man, Jodie had slapped a sex ban on herself and was celibate for four years.

And though we'd assumed she and James had waited until their wedding night to… ahem… do the deed, Jodie reveals that isn't the case.

"It's so embarrassing. It was after he proposed, put it that way. It was his idea to wait until he proposed because he wanted it to be right for me. We were cuddling on the sofa and he said: 'Wouldn't it be cool if we waited to have sex until I've proposed?'" Explains Jodie.

"I didn't even know that he was going to ask me to marry him at that time!"
