Thanks for your question.
If you are getting married in Jamaica he will have to apply for a spouse visa from Jamaica. He will not be allowed to re-enter the UK without gaining entry clearance which which he should get following his application. If his application is refused he should be granted leave to appeal under Article 8 of European Convention of Human Rights.
You cannot marry in the UK without first obtaining a certificate of approval from UKBA and this is highly unlikely to be granted at this time because he is here illegally.
Sorry it could not be better news.

What is the likely hood of him being refused. We are aware that he would have to apply from Jamaica , many thanks
He is likely to be able to obtain the spouses visa given that he can rely on his Article 8 right to a family and private life. I'd put it at around 70% probability of getting it on first application, be sure to make it easy for them by ensuring his application and paperwork are all in order.
I hope this clarifies, if so please kindly click accept.
