    Stephen Fry Is To Marry His Partner Elliot Spencer

    A date has not yet been set for the wedding.

    The Press Association reported that 57-year-old comedian-actor Stephen Fry will marry stand-up comic Elliott Spencer, 27, at a register office in Dereham, Norfolk, near to where he grew up.

    A friend of Fry's told The Sun, which broke the story: "We’ve got the old Stephen back."

    And a friend of Fry's also told The Mirror:

    Stephen and Elliot get on brilliantly together. It's fantastic to see Stephen with a smile on his face again. He has been very, very open about his battles with drugs and depression. Elliot seems to have given him the confidence to live his life again. It's great to have the old Stephen back.

    Fry confirmed the news on Twitter.

    Oh. It looks as though a certain cat is out of a certain bag. I’m very very happy of course but had hoped for a private wedding. Fat chance!

    Thank you all SO much for your kind congratulations. Deeply touched xxx

    Previously, Spencer said this about Fry.
