Liam Fray wants to treat the couple who are holding their wedding reception at their Emirates Old Trafford show.

Liam Fray has revealed that Courteeners are planning "something special" and "private" for the couple spending their wedding day at their upcoming Manchester gig. 

Last week, we reported that Pete Richards and Abby Clare, along with their 65 guests, booked tickets to the band's huge gig at Emirates Old Trafford next  May.

And, after tweeting the band about the plans for their upcoming nuptials, it looks like bride and groom to be can expect their big day at the cricket ground to get even bigger.

“We’re definitely gonna do something special, we’re not sure yet," frontman Liam Fray told NME.

 “We’re definitely gonna do something privately for them, not draw attention to them in a middle of a cricket ground field or whatever – that might not be ideal at 8pm on a Bank Holiday weekend."

He added: "I’m not sure if they’d appreciate that; 50,000 people staring at them – maybe they would, I don’t know. But we are gonna sort something. It’s such a great story.”

When Liam Fray first spotted the news on Twitter, he joked that they'd "be a few wedding crashers": 

The band are set to play their biggest show to-date at Emirates Old Trafford on 27 May 2016, and whatever they choose to do for the happy couple, something tells us they'd have no problem with a very public surprise in front of 50,000 fans.
