Matt marries Prince Charming

Panto party on wedding day

Matt Lucas has married his long-term boyfriend Kevin McGee in a civil ceremony in London.

The low-key wedding was followed by an extravagant reception, where guests including Elton John and Dale Winton donned panto outfits.

The 32-year-old Little Britain star and his 30-year-old producer partner married quietly in Homes House, a private members club in central London, and posed for photographers as they emerged.

Lucas looked nervous and said the ceremony had gone 'very well, thank you'.

They then went on to the party, Lucas changing into an Aladdin outfit and McGee dressing up as Adam Ant.

Walliams came in Tweedledum-style pinstriped suit, blonde wig and a name tag claiming he was Christopher Biggins. Sir Elton came as Captain Hook, Will Young as one of Cinderella's Ugly Sisters and Barbara Windsor as a fairy godmother outfit

Others at the reception in Whitehall included Rob Brydon, Vic Reeves, Courtney Love, Paul O'Grady and Louis Walsh.

Lucas said: ‘I like dressing up. I'm a dull dresser, so it's a chance for me to be a bit more outrageous.

Lucas and McGee, who live together in a £1.5 million house in St John's Wood, got engaged in May, three years after meeting at a London club. They to go on honeymoon for a few weeks before the Little Britain Live tour to Australia in January.
