Alan and Paul tied the knot in 2018 in Los Angeles after 10 years together.

At the time of their nuptials, a spokesperson for Alan said in a statement: “Alan Carr married his long-term partner Paul Drayton at a small private ceremony in LA last week.

“The couple are currently on honeymoon in Mexico and are planning a big celebration with all their family and friends back in the UK later this summer.

“They are both extremely happy.”

Last month, Paul revealed to his Instagram followers that he was undergoing an operation on his skull.

At the time, he reportedly said: “I have a chronic subdural hematoma.

“They have to drill two small holes to drain it. Hopefully in the next few days.

“I won’t be on here for a while but will read all your messages as it gives me comfort and peace.”

Last August, Alan spoke out to say he was supporting Paul after he had ‘fallen off the wagon‘.

Paul was freed on unconditional bail until January 26, 2022, as well as being disqualified from driving.
