LONDON — Actor-comedian Stephen Fry has married partner Elliott G. Spencer in eastern England.

The 57-year-old Fry sent a tweet to his 8 million followers on Saturday, announcing that he had tied the knot.

“Gosh. @ElliottGSpencer and I go into a room as two people, sign a book and leave as one,” Fry says on his Twitter feed. “Amazing.”

Well-wishers tweeted their congratulations on Sunday.

Fry announced his plans earlier this month to wed 27-year-old Spencer at the register office in Dereham, eastern England.

One of Britain’s best-known presenters, Fry first gained fame in the 1980s in a comedy duo with Hugh Laurie. He also written novels and appeared in the film, “The Hobbit.”
