Stephen Fry to marry comedian Elliot Spencer

Stephen Fry admits he is to wed 27 year old Elliot Spencer

This is a lovely story to wake up to! Stephen Fry has always been a prolific Twitter user so it doesn't come as much as a surprise he has confirmed there he is to wed his partner, the comedian Elliot Spencer. Now I'm sure there will be plenty said about the age gap (Fry is 57) but I myself know nothing of their relationship so I've no comment on that.

I was surprised though that he did acknowledge the rumour having tweeted

" Oh. It looks as though a certain cat is out of a certain bag. I’m very very happy of course but had hoped for a private wedding. Fat chance!"

This is surprising as Fry is actually a rather private person.

All the best to both of them!

I hope it makes him happy as he is bipolar and gets really down at times . I do like him and he is brilliantly clever and funny too

I met Stephen Fry at a book reading and signing session - he shared the event with Gore Vidal - both wonderful writers - hope the wedding goes well for him

He really is one of a kind. So sad to read some of what he has been through. Never heard of his partner though!

I think the closest I've got to him is he once followed me on Twitter. This was back in the day where he'd follow anyone lol

Good luck to them both, I like Stephen Fry, a funny but sad man.

As long as they are happy together, that's all that's important. People who judge them about the age difference and say they can't have anything in common don't know anything, I hate it when people judge like that without knowing anything.

It's good news. The wedding should be quite an occasion and I bet he'll make a wonderful wedding day speech.

One of my all-time comedy/writing heroes. I hope they are both very happy.

That is quite a big age gap but as long as they are happy that's the main thing.

I agree with your reference to the age gap. If it does not matter to Stephen Fry or Elliot Spencer, then it should not matter to anyone.

Stephen Fry is a talented man. He was terrific teamed with Hugh Laurie on Jeeves and Wooster.
