Stephen Fry's marriage shows the irrelevance of age gaps - Watch

Stephen Fry, the British actor and comedian, 57, married boyfriend Elliott Spencer at a private ceremony in the English county of Norfolk.

He shared a picture of the happy couple signing marriage documents.

“Gosh. ElliottGSpencer and I go into a room as two people, sign a book and leave as one. Amazing.”

The marriage comes on the back of a whirlwind romance after Fry began dating Spencer, 27, last year.

Spencer wore a sharp black suit for the occasion alongside Fry who looked the picture of happiness in a grey suit and stripped tie.

Spencer, a writer and comedian, who is 30 years Fry’s junior, was caught speeding in the presenter’s Aston Martin supercar last month.

Fry, who has been open about suffering from loneliness and depression and has admitted to trying to kill himself in the past, is said by pals to be his old self again in the company of his younger lover.

He has called his relationship with Spencer “wonderful”.
