Cher Lloyd has secretly tied the knot with her fiancé.

The 'X Factor' star, who got engaged to hair stylist Craig Monk in January 2012, has revealed she is now a married woman.

The 20-year-old singer shared a wedding photo on her Instagram account along with the date of the big day - Monday, November 18.

Cher and Craig, who also worked on 'The X Factor', got engaged after less than a year of dating on her 18th birthday and the singer originally wanted to get married sooner.

She said at the time: "I'm engaged and want to get married as soon as possible. I can't wait.

"People might think I am too young because I'm 18 but they can say what they want.

"I am from a gypsy background and you are meant to get married at 18.

"I love Craig and he makes me happy. I know I am going to spend the rest of my life with him. I have been through a lot over the past few years and I deserve to have some happiness.

"He asked me on my birthday. I'm not going to say how he did it but it was very romantic."

The 'Swagger Jagger' singer, who is now a big star in America, insisted her wedding dress would not be as extravagant as the huge gowns shown on reality TV show 'Big Fat Gypsy Weddings' and eventually chose an stunning white gown with delicate beading.
