They married in a whirlwind Las Vegas ceremony at the beginning of the month, and now Sophie Turner has revealed she and Joe Jonas actually got cold feet and split before they said ‘I do’.

"It was the worst day of our lives. For a second we both had cold feet, then 24 hours later we were both, like, 'Never mind,'" she told the Sunday Times.

The Game of Thrones actress was "very mentally unwell" when she first met the 'Sucker' singer, and said a turning point for her was the moment he said she needed to "love herself" before they could be together.

"I was going through this phase of being very mentally unwell,” she said.

"He was, like, 'I can't be with you until you love yourself, I can't see you love me more than you love yourself.'

"That was something, him doing that. I think he kind of saved my life, in a way."

Last month the couple tied the knot straight after the Billboard Music Awards.

The pair headed to a Las Vegas wedding chapel after obtaining a marriage license earlier in the day.

News of the nuptials first surfaced on Diplo’s Instagram story when the US-based DJ began posting footage from the impromptu ceremony.

In the clips, the couple were seen entering the chapel with Sophie in a white gown while Joe and his brothers were dressed in suits.

"Gonna hit up this wedding real quick," Diplo captioned the clip.

The union was confirmed by Entertainment Tonight who obtained a copy of the couple's marriage license.

Joe and Sophie first began dating in late 2016 and were engaged the following October.
