Glenda Gilson nearly COLLAPSED going up the aisle

Xpose star Glenda Gilson has told how she nearly collapsed as she walked down the aisle last week.

The TV3 presenter wed Rob McNaughton in a star-studded fairytale ceremony in Co Clare last weekend.

But the 33-year-old left her father Noel shocked as he delivered her to the aisle – when she “went into a shake” and her face spasmed.

She told VIP Magazine: “We got to the front of the church, kept moving and then when the doors opened and we started down the aisle, he asked if I was alright, if I was ready to do this.

“I told him I was and then, halfway down, something got me and I went into a shake. He unlinked me, and put an arm around me and said, ‘Are you okay Glenda, are you okay?’

“And I said, ‘Yeah, I’m fine.’ But he said to me afterwards that my whole body just went into a shake. I don’t know why.

“And I remember one side of my cheek went into a spasm too, and I remember thinking, ‘Oh my God, everyone can see this.'”

However Glenda immediately became a “giddy goat” when she joined “emotional” Rob at the alter.

She added: “The minute we got up to the alter, we were like two giddy goats – we couldn’t stop laughing.

“And, as everyone told me, we kept kissing each other and we weren’t even married yet… I never enjoyed mass so much in my life.”

Jubilant Glenda and her new husband then partied away the night until 6am at Donald Trump’s Doonbeg Lodge – having their first dance to Elton John’s Your Song.

However the Dubliner revealed it was “weird” when she first woke up as a married woman the next morning.

And Glenda – who said the actual nuptials were “magical from start to finish” – found it hard to believe she was officially Mrs McNaughton.

She said: “It was weird! I can’t over his hand and the ring on his finger; that’s the biggest thing for me. It’s a great feeling.

“It’s like, wow, we’re here and we did it. This is the way we wanted to be and it’s just a gorgeous feeling. We’re so thrilled – we can’t stop smiling.”

She is now living in up in Las Vegas for her honeymoon – before touring the US.
