Ant McPartlin's wedding: Best man, venue, and celebrity guests

Ant McPartlin and Anne-Marie Corbett are rumoured to be getting married on Friday, after the presenter popped the question at Christmas. 

The pair’s wedding has been a highly anticipated day but is likely to be a more low-key affair than his first wedding to Strictly Come Dancing make-up artist Lisa Armstrong.

Nonetheless, what the couple is said to have planned looks set to be pretty spectacular, with reports suggesting the big day is costing around £100,000. 

There is guaranteed to be a sprinkle of famous faces among the guests too – with Ant’s long-time best friend and co-host Dec Donnelly guaranteed to have a role in the big day. 

Here’s what we know about Ant McPartlin and Anne-Marie Corbett’s big day so far: 

Who is Ant McPartlin’s best man?

Ant’s best man is expected to be his sidekick Dec, though they have previously joked that he might be ousted in favour of the dog instead. 

Where is the wedding venue?

Details of the venue are a closely guarded secret, but the pair are said to be marrying in a ‘lavish countryside estate’.

According to reports from The Sun, the couple has erected a marquee in the grounds and tight security is in place. 

The couple is said to have invited 100 guests, who are expected to stay overnight at the venue, with Ant reportedly telling the guests to send their spa bills to the £5,000 a night honeymoon suite he and Anne-Marie are staying in.

Ant and Anne-Marie are said to have considered getting married abroad, but decided to do it in the UK after all due to the ever-changing travel rules amid the coronavirus pandemic. 

What wedding dress is Anne-Marie Corbett wearing?

No details have yet been revealed about Anne-Marie’s dress, with fans eagerly awaiting the first photos of the bride. 

Which celebrity guests could be attending the wedding?

Dec Donnelly is guaranteed to be on the guestlist and a few other famous faces may well make up some of the 100 spaces too.

Some close friends who may have got an invite could include Holly Willoughby, Stephen Mulhern and even boss Simon Cowell. 

Despite a few stars being in attendance, the couple are said to want a low-key day, with a source telling 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’re both extremely excited and can’t wait to tie the knot.

‘But they’re desperate to keep a lid on things. Those who know have been told it’s top secret.’
