Elliott Spencer, the partner of actor and broadcaster Stephen Fry, has been banned from driving.
Spencer, whose engagement to Fry was announced on Tuesday, was spotted by a speed camera driving at more than 100mph in a 70mph zone in an effort to get his fiancé to the Hay-on-Wye literature festival.
In a court appearance at Cwmbran Magistrates' Court yesterday, Spencer was banned from driving for seven days and fined a total of £205 including costs.
The court was told that the couple were running late for the literature festival and that Fry has urged his partner to "get a move on".
Fry, who accompanied his partner to court, said that he assumed all responsibility as it was he who had urged Spencer to put his foot down "in a moment of indiscretion".
The couple have yet to set a date for their wedding.
