Stephen Fry has married his fiance, Elliott Spencer

Comedian and broadcaster Stephen Fry has married his fiancé, stand-up comic and writer Elliott Spencer.

Fry shared a picture on Twitter of him and his new husband signing the wedding registry today at the register office in Dereham, Norfolk.

He tweeted: "Gosh, @ElliottGSpencer and I go into a room as two people, sign a book and leave as one. Amazing."

Fry announced his engagement to Spencer two weeks ago and joked that he had hoped to keep the wedding a private affair.

Friends close to the couple have said that Spencer has given Fry, who has suffered from depression in the past, a "new lust for life".
