Huge congratulations are in order for Rachel Riley and Pasha Kovalev, who eloped to Las Vegas at the end of June for a secret wedding ceremony. Rachel shared the news on her Instagram account, posting a sweet picture of the pair posing by the floral carousel at the Wynn hotel. "Introducing the new Mr and Mrs Kovalev. We both said yes!" She captioned the sweet picture, in which she wears an embroidered minidress and holds a cream and red bouquet, while Pasha sports a navy jacket and cream trousers.
Countdown presenter and mathematician Rachel met professional ballroom dancer Pasha in 2013, when they were coupled up for series 11 of Strictly Come Dancing. They began dating soon after the show, following Rachel's split from her first husband, Jamie Gilbert. In May of this year, the couple announced that they are expecting their first child, due at the end of the year. It's definitely proving to be a very exciting 2019 for the Kovalevs.
