‘Simon and I stood outside the door and my song started playing. I was already crying, and Simon definitely had a tear in his eye,” she said.

‘I linked my arms with him, but then I realized I was holding his arm. He kept saying, “You’re fine.” When Emilia came in with her father, I just cried.”

Discussing the moment she first saw Lucy walk down the aisle, Emilia said, “When I saw Lucy, it was everything I ever imagined and more.

When I got to the top of the aisle, Simon looked at both of us and he looked so proud, and so did my dad.”

Simon was joined for the occasion by his fiancée Lauren Silverman, along with actor Tom Turgoose, RuPaul’s Drag Race winner Bimini Bon Boulash and Love Island star Adam Collard.

Other Sides Of The Moon is a beautiful tribute to Lucy and tells the story of how the pair, friends for more than 10 years, began their relationship and the butterflies they both felt when, out of the blue, they reported a dream.

Speaking about the song, Lucy added: ‘I wrote Other Sides Of The Moon because now that we’re together, it feels like we’ve both always looked at the same moon, just from different sides of it.

‘Now that we’re on the same side, I finally realize what healthy love should feel like. I feel so happy every day.’

Lucy previously revealed that Simon Cowell will walk her down the aisle after the pair mended their relationship following her time on X Factor in 2012.

The singer revealed last year that she left the show after being raped by a hotel porter in the room she was staying in after partying with Rylan Clark during the show’s production.

Lucy explained that Simon was the first to apologise, previously admitting that his call ‘made things so much better for me’.

The star revealed she popped the question to Emilia again March after their friendship blossomed into a romance, despite meeting more than a decade ago in 2013.

Speaking about the My dirty laundry podcast Last month, Lucy opened up about her relationship as she explained: ‘It was a surprise for both of us because we’ve been friends for ten years and it wasn’t until last year, late last year, that we both kind of turned to each other and we were like, wait…’

‘We’ve been really good friends. We’ve known each other for over ten years, and we’ve been really good friends for four or five years.

‘[The realisation for us happened] exactly at the same time, without saying anything to each other. She had a dream about me and she woke up and said, ‘Oh, my God, I think that’s how I feel about Lucy.’

“And she sent me a text saying she was coming to my show and I got butterflies and I was just like, ‘What was that?’ And that was two days after her dream.

Confirming that Simon will walk her down the aisle, Lucy said: ‘It’s actually true. WWe have bonded so much over the years.

“I actually asked him when we were in Barbados around Christmas. We were all at the beach and loved hanging out and it’s just really beautiful.

We talked about the wedding. We weren’t even properly engaged yet. And I was like, ‘Do you want to give me away?’ And he went swimming in the sea.

“And he came back and it was just said, ‘It would be me, I would be honored.’

Lucy revealed that Simon’s role won’t end there. She said: ‘He’s giving a speech and it’s funny because a lot of people feel like they know people who are on television.

“But there are different depths for different people. People give away different vulnerabilities to different things. And I feel truly privileged to know Simon in the same way I do.”

She joked, “His speech will probably go something like this [mimics Simon on X Factor,] ‘I don’t like this wedding. I love this wedding.’

Lucy didn’t give much away when it came to the theme of her wedding. I’m just saying it will be ‘quirky’ and ‘last minute’, although she did admit to having a spreadsheet with twelve tabs.

And despite raising 12 children when she married her first wife Georgina Gordon (they were together for six years but split in 2019), Lucy said she and Emilia don’t want children of their own.

She said: ‘I definitely have a nurturing side, but I know I don’t have a motherly side. I don’t want children and neither does Emilia.

‘And that’s something we’re both very happy with. And we’re really looking forward to enjoying this life where we can do whatever we want, but we both have a niece and a nephew who we would take a bullet for.”
