We spoke to Sascha on what happened to be the pair's ten year wedding anniversary (she said Miguel had somehow arranged roses to be delivered to her doorstep in his absence) to get all the details on how the Crazy Bull managed to sweep her off her feet.

"My friend and I had been travelling and we went to Scotland for Christmas to see my family, and my cousins told me I just had to visit Edinburgh," she told 10 daily over the phone.

"I got a job in a bar as a waitress and Miguel had just started as the doorman, at the time [he] couldn't speak one word of English."

She continued, "The guy he was working with basically told him that all you need to say is 'you've got beautiful eyes' so, of course, he would walk around to all the girls going, 'Beautiful, beautiful!' and all the girls were getting so excited."
