Little Britain's Matt Lucas Weds Partner in London

Lb1 Lb2

Little Britain's Matt Lucas got legally hitched to his partner Kevin McGee over the weekend in a civil partnership ceremony in central London, followed by a reception at The Banqueting House.

The photo above shows Lucas and McGee just after the ceremony and following at a pantomime-themed reception.

It must be the season for fashion faux-pas. Last week it was red dresses at the White House. This week it was Captain Hook costumes at London's most high-profile celebrity wedding reception: "Sir Elton John, Queen's Roger Taylor, Paul O'Grady, Neil Tennant from the Pet Shop Boys and hypnotist Paul McKenna all arrived to celebrate his civil partnership dressed as the villainous pirate."

Below: O'Grady, McKenna, Tennant, John. I've a feeling nobody went home to change outfits, but perhaps they clawed each other's eyes out with the multitude of hooks.

  1. It looks like he married his own teenage son!

  2. Most gay weddings are pretty gay. Some gay weddings, however, are VERY gay.

  7. The proper thing to say when someone gets married is: "Best wishes." I hope they have a wonderful life together.

  8. Good thing he's not the only gay in the vill-age after all. :)

  9. Looking at the pictures I was so impressed with the costumes and the attention to detail and then remembered that it is an English tradition to dress up at Christmas Tide. Mummers and pantomimes. Shame on the Log Cabin conservatives and nay sayers. Get out, be gay, don we now our gay apparel, t'is the season to be jolly, fa la la la la la la la la.

  11. I didn't even know he was gay!

    Is the other guy from show gay too?

  12. Hear hear Homer, what a nasty vibe this thread got off to for such a truly lovely and genuinely gifted comedienne - one that 'we' can call our own. The press coverage here in the UK concentrated simply on the couple's big day and the unbelievable reception party with nary an unnecessary 'us versus them' same sex marriage diatribe that is so ever present in the US press.

    No, Steve, David Walliams is not gay and is actually quite the ladies man around town (though oft mistaken for being gay simply because his professional partner is).

    I hope that David and Matt collaborate for many more years to come and more over that Matt experiences marital bliss with Kevin. Bless!

  13. Scugly. Way beyond fugly. Although Courtney Love appears to be cleaning up her act, yet still not quite ready for the road.

  14. Are we sure he married a man? Sure doesn't look like one.

  15. The Brits: Bad teeth, dirty hair, and ugly shoes. Thank heaven for their delicious cuisine! Nevertheless, really good parties.

  16. Llanddewi Brefi may allow same sex unions but just how did Daffyd find his husband if he is the only gay in the vilage?

  17. Looks like it was a lot of fun. I wish them the best!
