Ant McPartlin and fiancée Anne-Marie 'to wed this August in small ceremony'

Ant McPartlin is reportedly set to wed fiancee Anne-Marie Corbett in an inimate ceremony this summer after they got engaged on Christmas Eve last year.

The couple are said to be keen to avoid ‘the razzmatazz of a showbiz wedding’ and hope to say ‘I do’ in front of a small gathering of 30 friends and family.

A source told The Sun: ‘Neither of them want the razzmatazz of a showbiz wedding. They just want their nearest and dearest with them.

‘It will be a simple but beautiful ceremony, without the glare of the spotlight.’

They added that Ant and Anne-Marie are ‘extremely excited’ but ‘want to keep a lid’ on the details, and those who have been told about their plans have been sworn to secrecy.

Anne-Marie has also apparently been for her dress fitting.


It will be the second marriage for the I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! presenter who was previously married to Lisa Armstrong for 11 years. They split in January 2018.

Ant and Anne-Marie struck up a romance a few months after and his rep confirmed the engagement at the start of the year.

They told Metro.co.uk: ‘Ant and Amzie are delighted to announce their engagement. The proposal took place on Christmas Eve at home in a very romantic setting.’

A friend of the couple also told The Sun: ‘Both Amzie and Ant adore Christmas, and get really into it every year, so Ant decided to pop the question on Christmas Eve.

‘He’s a traditionalist, so got down on one knee after first checking with Anne Marie’s family that he had their blessing. It was super-romantic, and obviously Anne-Marie said ‘yes’ straight away.

However they added that a summer ceremony was ‘looking unlikely’ due to the ongoing pandemic, and the wedding ‘may well be a 2022 affair’. It seems the loved up pair may have changed their minds…

The Britain’s Got Talent presenter popped the question on Christmas Eve 2020 after two years of dating.

The TV star told Digital Spy it was ‘a lovely way to end the year’.

‘You know, there were flowers, and afternoon tea in front of the Christmas tree. Lovely. It was lovely,’ he added.

Metro.co.uk has contacted Ant’s rep for comment.
