Stephen Fry and Elliott Spencer get marriedThe 57-year-old-actor and presenter posted a picture on Twitter of him and partner Spencer, 27, signing a marriage register – thought to be in a register office in Dereham, Norfolk – with the accompanying caption: “Gosh. @ElliotGSpencer and I go into a room as two people, sign a book and leave as one. Stephen Fry and his husband Elliott Spencer managed to get married in secret today, and now The Hobbit star has revealed how Oscar Wilde played a part in their wedding. Amazing.” In the photograph, Fry and Spencer wore matching green carnations, a reference to the writer Oscar Wilde, whose 19th Century followers would wear a green carnation on their lapel. Earlier in the day, Fry had sent out a Tweet that suggested that he might have been planning to watch his football team, Norwich, take on Cardiff City and going to a “banquet”.

Fry had taken to Twitter earlier this month to reveal his wedding plans with Spencer in order to respond to recent tabloid reports about his love life. “Oh. The British funnyman, whose engagement made front page news just days ago, shared a photo of the couple signing the registry – with a small toy of Oscar Wilde in the shot on the desk. Wilde, who was imprisoned for gross indecency due to an affair with the son of the Marquis of Queensberry in 1895, was one of Fry’s most famous acting roles.

The QI host had previously dropped a hint about the couple’s nuptials, revealing that he was going to attend a banquet before watching Norwich City play Cardiff City. Illusionist Derren Brown was among the first stars to congratulate the newly weds once Stephen broke the new, commenting on the photo: “Gor.geous xxx”. And then @NorwichCityFC v @CardiffCityFC – good things… #BBCSnooker.” Fry’s former comedy partner, House star Hugh Laurie, tweeted his congratulations to the couple. “Bloody hell it’s happened! @ElliottGSpencer has made an honest man of m’col. The couple were in a loaned Aston Martin DB9 when Fry told Spencer to hurry because they were running late for his inaugural address as President of the Hay Festival in Mid Wales. Fry appeared in court to support his fiance during the 30-minute hearing and the court heard he was prepared to take to the witness box to provide a testimony.
