Britain's Former Top Cop Brian Paddick Marries Partner in Norway


The UK's former top cop, London mayoral candidate, and I'm a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here contestant Brian Paddick married his Norwegian partner Petter Belsvick in his home country over the weekend. Norway's marriage laws went into effect on January 1 after being legalized last June. Norway has offered same-sex civil unions since 1993, but the recent law made gender marriage neutral.

The Daily Mail reports: "They were joined by friends from Paddick’s stint on I’m A Celebrity, Get Me Out Of Here, at a party held in their honour in London last night. Guests at the bash at the Hempel Hotel in Paddington included Simon Webbe, Nicola McLean and George Takei."

  5. Typo Alert: Shouldn't the wording be "the recent law made marriage gender neutral"?

  8. We'd love him to have been our "top cop" (well, maybe), but he wasn't - he was Deputy Assistant Commissioner of London's Metropolitan Police Service - several rungs from the top in the capital's (not the country's) police force. He was the UK's most senior openly gay police officer though.

    Still, excellent!
