GARY LINEKERS new father-in-law today claimed he was heartbroken after missing his daughters wedding to the former soccer ace because of a family rift. Roy Bux said he only found out about the event in Italy when he read about it in the newspapers yesterday. Match Of The Day host Lineker, 48, married Danielle Bux, 30, on Tuesday in a secret low-key 400 service, followed by a night at a luxury hotel on the Amalfi coast. They tied the knot with just two witnesses and celebrated last night with a reception for family and friends. But Mr Bux, 54, a shopworker from Cardiff, today reportedly claimed he was left off the guest list after falling out with his daughter. The lingerie model is said to have been furious after her father let slip to the media she was engaged to Lineker, who is said to be worth about 30m. Mr Bux, who is divorced from Danielles mother, said: I love Danielle to bits and would do anything for her. A daughters wedding is one of the most important days in any fathers life. I am heartbroken. If I had gone Danielle would have been unhappy. I wish her and Gary all the very best. The pair met on a blind date in 2007, a year after the former Spurs star had got divorced from Michelle, his wife of nearly 20 years. The new couple looked thrilled in their official wedding photograph, which was taken in Ravello after their blessing.
