Ant McPartlin Arrives At Church With Best Man Dec To Marry Anne-Marie Corbett

Ant McPartlin has arrived at the church for his wedding with Anne-Marie Corbett.

The couple are tying the knot at St Michael's Church in the small village of Heckfield, Hampshire, in front of some of the TV presenter's famous faces.

Among those gathered this afternoon is comedy partner Declan Donnelly, who is the 45-year-old's best man.

The pair were pictured in their black tuxedos standing outside the wedding venue earlier today.

Ahead of the ceremony, she told the Mirror that she was excited to be part of the couple's big day.

She said: "I'm looking forward to sharing in their joy, and I'm looking forward to the blessings for their future.

"That's all I can say right now, but God bless, it's going to be a wonderful time."

The couple got together following McPartlin's separation from Lisa Armstrong, his wife of 11 years, earlier in 2018.

They were reportedly planning to marry abroad but opted to host the ceremony in the UK because of the pandemic.

Corbett, who was formerly McPartlin's personal assistant, has two daughters from her relationship with ex-husband Scott Corbett.

Britain's Got Talent star McPartlin, from Newcastle-upon-Tyne, has described Corbett as his "rock" after she supported him following his 2018 drink-driving arrest and stint in rehab.

Speaking back in 2019, Ant said his dark times tested his friendship with his best man.

He said: It's been a tough couple of years, it's really tested the bond we've shared since we were 13 years old.

"I was incredibly angry at the start, so angry and disappointed in him that he didn't ever come to me and say I'm struggling, I need you because I thought if the shoe was on the other foot I would have gone to him, said 'I'm in trouble', and he never came to me and that hurt me a lot."

Adding: "The last few years have been quite emotional, hard. They've been testing, I would say - how strong your love is, friendship is."

He then went on: "I knew he was angry and understandably so because my action not only affected home but him.

"There was a point where I thought that was it. There were times I wasn't sure it was gonna survive, times that you didn't know it needed to survive, you wanted it to survive.

"Focusing on me and repairing relationships and being a better person; working out what was important."
