There's nothing quite like a celebrity wedding.

Katie Price in her pink princess dress when she tied the knot with Peter Andre springs to mind.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's wedding was absolutely iconic and we're still devo that we didn't get an invite.

And Holly Willoughby and Dan Baldwin's big day looked like an absolute dream too.

However not all celebs make it up the aisle. While one of them is still together but they're in no rush to actually exchange their "I dos", the rest of them split before they could even go dress shopping.

Whether they're reality TV stars who got engaged on the show or A-list celebs who moved incredibly fast in their relationship - the majority of them were engaged for a short stint... meaning you've probably forgotten all about it.

Check out: the celebs you've probably forgotten were engaged

Gemma Collins and Rami Hawash

Back in 2013 Gemma Collins got engaged to Rami Hawash after he proposed by sticking her ring in a Christmas pudding. The perfect kind of proposal, tbh. It's pretty obvious that things didn't last because The GC has been in an on/off relationship with James Argent ever since.

Spice Girl Emma Bunton - aka Baby Spice - spoke out about her wedding and admitted they're in no rush because they want it to be a private affair.

"We would love to actually [get married] and we have talked about it. We try to, but we want it to be private, every time we try it's out there. We want to do it privately on our own," she told Zoe Ball on BBC Radio 2.

The radio presenter went on to add, "We should elope, but we can't organise anything Jade and me, we've been together 21 years in this business."

Although Emma and Jade are yet to walk down the aisle they've been together since 1998. Although they split a year later, before reuniting for good in 2004.

They're both parents to their sons Beau, 13, and Tate, nine.
