British actor-tv personality Stephen Fry and fiance Elliott Spencer have married.

“Gosh, @ElliottGSpencer and I go into a room as two people, sign a book and leave as one. Amazing,” Fry tweeted to his more than 8 million Twitter followers along with a photo of the couple signing a marriage register in Dereham, Norfolk.

Fry, 57, and Spencer, a 27-year-old stand-up comic, reportedly started dating last year.

Two weeks ago, Fry confirmed reports that the couple was preparing to marry.

“Oh, it looks as though a certain cat is out of a certain bag,” he messaged. “I'm very very happy of course but had hoped for a private wedding. Fat chance!”

Fry is thought to have separated from a long-term partner five years ago, though he's not revealed many details of his love life.
