Cat Deeley recalls BTS moment with Mariah Carey during iconic SM:TV wedding

Cat Deeley has reunited with Ant and Dec for a one-off documentary looking back at their time on SM:TV.

And while it’s not know when the much-anticipated special will air, the presenter appeared on The One Show tonight, where she promoted the news.

When catching up with hosts Alex Jones and Ronan Keating, the trio found themselves reminiscing over the iconic episode where Mariah Carey walked Cat down the aisle on her faux wedding day.

‘She was absolutely lovely,’ Cat said of the diva before recalling an adorable behind-the-scenes moment.

‘She actually went to Virgin Brides herself to pick that monstrosity of a dress but she wanted to be lavender satin,’ the star laughed.

‘But, she proceeds to talk to Ant [McPartlin] about throwing shoes on top of bus stops – and that’s the thing that brought them together and connected them.’

Addressing what Mariah was like ‘off camera’, the 43-year-old said: ‘As I was standing waiting to go on set, she fluffed my dress.

‘I said, “Mariah what are you doing? What you doing Mariah?” And she said, “You’ve got to look beautiful, it’s your wedding day!”‘

Cat beamed: ‘She’s nuts and brilliant!’

Declan Donnelly recently confirmed a reunion had been filmed when talking on Zoe Ball’s Radio 2 breakfast show.

Here he said: ‘There’s definitely an SM:TV reunion. We’ve filmed a show looking back at the story of SM:TV and how it came about. That’s going to be on later in the year. We’ve recorded that already.

‘We said, “We should just do another one time. Just do it. But do it 9.25 on a Saturday morning for three hours, get bands on.”

‘I don’t know, let’s see. We’d love to do it but I don’t know if we can.’

The One Show continues weekdays at 7pm on BBC One.
