Former Newtown and Northern Ireland footballer Mark Williams and glamour girl wife Lyndsey Dawn MacKenzie starred on Living TV’s Four Weddings tonight.
This week's Celebrity Four Weddings featured magician Paul Daniels renewing his vows with wife Debbie McGee in a circus-themed day, Big Brother’s Spencer Smith marrying his fiancé Jo Ellison at a golf club, Shameless actress Tina Malone remarrying husband Paul and Lyndsey Dawn MacKenzie marrying Williams on a Marbella beach.
Malone and husband Paul won most votes and won a cash donation to two charities of their choice.
Williams started his career at Crewe but moved to Latham Park to bolster the team then competing in the Northern Premier League. He later moved to Shrewsbury Town, where in 1993/94 season he picked up a Football League Division 3 (4th tier) championship medal.

After three seasons with the Shrews he moved to Chesterfield. In the 1996–97 season, he was part of Chesterfield's historic run to the FA Cup semi final, playing in both the semi final and semi final replay against Middlesbrough.
In 1999, he was signed by newly-promoted Premier League side Watford. However, at the end of the season the Hornets were relegated in bottom place with just 24 points and Williams moved to another relegated side Wilmbledon.
Although an integral part of the team in his first season, he lost his place and was loaned out to Stoke City for the 2002-03 season. After Wimbledon's relocation to Milton Keynes he stayed with the new team and spent his last season of football with Rushden & Diamonds. 
He also had a spell with Major League Soccer team Columbus Crew  in 2003, playing five games. Williams played for Northern Ireland between 1999 and 2005 and won 36 caps, scoring once.

He has recently got back into the game acting as a football agent.
