Rapper and singer Example has married former Neighbours actress Erin McNaught in a ceremony in her native Australia.

The couple, who became engaged last November, have been congratulated by friends and fans on Twitter.

Speaking about his impending nuptials, Example, whose real name is Elliot Gleave, tweeted: "Thanks for all your lovely wedding wishes guys. The big day is tomorrow. By 3pm Aussie time @Erin_McNaught will be Mrs Gleave."

When a follower joked that McNaught would be coming down the aisle to one of his dance hits, and that Example would be rapping his own vows, the 30-year-old musician replied: "Hopefully not...."

On Saturday morning local time in Australia, Example posted: "It's 7.30am. Just going for a little 6 mile jog. Ceremony starts in 6 hours. Not sure if this is normal protocol for your wedding day... ?"

While the rapper and his new wife have not updated their feeds since their nuptials, Calvin Harris retweeted a message from producer Skream, saying: "Huge congratulations to @example + @Erin_McNaught !!! Massive Love to you both, hope you're having an amazing day!"
