07 Aug Ant McPartlin poses for photos with Declan Donnelly ahead of wedding to Anne-Marie Corbett | UK News
Celebrity guests have been pictured arriving at a church for Ant McPartlin’s wedding.
McPartlin, 45, is marrying Anne-Marie Corbett at St Michael’s Church in Heckfield, Hampshire, today.
He posed for photos with his TV partner and friend Declan Donnelly, 45, outside the building before the ceremony.
The pair, known as Ant and Dec, wore matching dinner suits and smiled as they stood outside the venue and greeted fans gathered outside.
A reception after the wedding is due to take place at a nearby luxury hotel, where guests will be staying.
Among the stars seen arriving were This Morning host Phillip Schofield, married TV presenters Patrick Kielty and Cat Deeley, and comedian David Walliams.
TV presenter Dermot O’Leary, singer Alesha Dixon, former Chelsea footballer Frank Lampard and his wife Christine, a Loose Women co-host, also posed for photographs entering the church.
Guests arrived at the venue in minibuses before heading inside through a specially constructed arch made of flowers.
The sun was shining as they made their way into the church, following heavy downpours earlier in the day.
More than a dozen fans headed to the venue to stand outside in order to catch a glimpse of the stars.
Britain’s Got Talent presenter McPartlin has been with his fiancée since 2018, with the pair getting engaged on Christmas Eve in 2020.
They got together after he separated from make-up artist Lisa Armstrong, his wife of 11 years, earlier in 2018.
According to reports, McPartlin and Corbett had initially been planning to marry abroad.
However, they eventually decided to host the ceremony in the UK because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Corbett, who previously worked as McPartlin’s personal assistant, has two daughters from her relationship with ex-husband Scott Corbett.
McPartlin, from Newcastle-upon-Tyne, has described her as his “rock” after she supported him following his 2018 drink-driving arrest and stint in rehab.
