Comedian Alan Carr And Husband Paul Drayton Announce Split

Comedian Alan Carr and his husband Paul Drayton are separating after three years of marriage, a spokesperson for Carr has said. 

The couple, who have been in a relationship for 13 years, said they have made the decision 'jointly and amicably'. 

In a statement to the PA news agency, the spokesperson said: “After 13 years as a couple and three years of marriage, Alan Carr and Paul Drayton would like to announce they are separating. 

“They have jointly and amicably made the difficult decision to divorce and go their separate ways. 


“We request that their privacy is respected at this sensitive time.”

The couple got engaged in 2016 when they were on holiday in Indonesia, where Drayton proposed.

In a previous interview with The Sun, recalled: "He asked me to marry him in Lombok.


"There were nine couples in this boutique hotel and a man playing the organ. I went to the toilet and came out to eat dessert, and then I was like, 'Oh my God, a filling's come out, just my luck on holiday.'

"I pull it out and it's this ring and then the man on the organ starts singing 'Can You Feel The Love Tonight?'

"Then the chef and all the staff came out - and the manager - and sang 'Can You Feel The Love Tonight?', but they didn't know the next lyric, so they just sang, 'Can You Feel The Love Tonight? Can you feel the love tonight?'

"So it was my idea of hell, but of course I said yes.


"My life is a roller coaster - like Ronan Keating says."

He added, simply: "It's really nice."

Carr and Drayton then married in a small private ceremony in LA back in January 2018, with singer Adele officiating the big day after getting ordained specially.


Remembering the happy day in an interview on This Morning Carr said: "She said I want to do your special day, let me do everything. So, she got ordained and she married us."

He continued: "She is the kindest, most sweetest, loveliest person ever. She flew us to Vegas to see Celine Dion sing. She sang my first dance. It was the best day of my life."

Adele confirmed her role in the wedding a couple of months after, having shared a photo of herself dressed in cream robes, posing in front of a flower wall.


"Seeing as the cat's out the bag," she wrote on social media.

"I married two of my best friends in January. You know me any excuse to dress up."
