Sir Rod Stewart has surprised a couple whose destination wedding was almost ruined by the collapse of Thomas Cook.

Sharon Cook and Andrew Aitchison from Liverpool were due to get married in Vegas and had booked their flights with the airline, when it collapsed nine days before their nuptials.

But plans for the pair to marry on Wednesday went ahead after Caesars Palace, Nevada stepped in, booking new flights for the couple and their party and even arranging a surprise guest to serenade the bride, Sir Rod Stewart.

"Rod Stewart just turned up at our wedding and sang to my wife," the groom wrote on Twitter.

"I can't believe what has happened in the last week and this has just topped it off."

Mr Aitchison went on to thank Sir Rod who had made our dream wedding calling him an absolute legend."

After his performance of Have I Told You Lately, Sir Rod invited the couple to watch his show.

Ahead of their flight to Vegas, Mr Aitchison, who along with his wife had spent 9,000 on flights with Thomas Cook posted on Twitter: "Five days ago travel and wedding plans in tatters. In 12 hours there will be 18 of us heading to Heathrow for our Delta flight on our way to Caesars Palace."

Ms Cook and Mr Aitchison flew first class on Delta Air Lines and were picked up in limousines, with their hotel accommodation upgraded to penthouse suites.
