Vicky Balch – who had amputated her leg after the horrific Alton Towers Smiler accident – revealed that she now had to postpone her dream wedding.

Vicky, 24, from Preston, Lancashire, was due to marry fighter Dino Manciocchi, 25, in Italy in September.

However, today she took to Instagram to reveal that the nuptials were being released, which & # 39; she & # 39; absolutely ditched & # 39; used to be.

They are the last couple to cancel or move their big day in the light of & # 39; the coronavirus pandemic.

Beautician Vicky was one of 16 injured when the Smiler roller coaster in June 2015 hit a low carriage on its tracks.

Alton Towers, in Staffordshire, which is owned by Merlin Entertainments, was fined £ 5 million for the incident.

Vicky revealed in November that she had received a multi-million pound payout after she had lost her right leg in a crash.

She used the money to fund her dream wedding.

The bride said getting a payout was a relief, but made her serious about what had happened.

& # 39; I had to face that this was something I had to live with for the rest of my life. What normal 24-year-old should think about one of these? & # 39 ;, she said.

& # 39; I don't think I'll ever get real closure. I have to move my whole life to the same physio, the same appointments my whole life. But at least I can live my life.

Vicky also told how she was excited to get engaged, has already received her wedding location and is planning a fairytale nuptials with close friends and family.

& # 39; I couldn't believe he asked. I cried for five minutes. I didn't click what it was until I saw the ring, & # 39; she said.

The compensation money is primarily earmarked for physio, treatments and prosthetic limbs for the rest of their lives.
