He told her: "I bottled it. I'm scared of flying. I thought I'll take [the sleeping tablet] quickly while I was going through customs.


"I would have swam here for you," he continued.

"There's only going to be one person to walk you down the aisle, and that's me."

He then added: "It's going to kill me, emotionally, to see you get married.

"I'm so proud to have you on my arm. I can't wait."
