Anthony McPartlin, of the popular TV presenting duo Ant and Dec, has married his girlfriend Lisa Armstrong at a ceremony in Buckinghamshire.

Long-term professional partner Declan Donnelly was best man at the wedding in St Nicolas Church, Taplow, with the reception at Cliveden House hotel.

The duo have co-hosted a series of ITV1 shows including I'm A Celebrity..., Pop Idol and Saturday Night Takeaway.

Make-up artist Lisa, 29, was a singer in pop band Deuce in the 1990s.

She met Ant at a roadshow in Newcastle in the mid 1990s while she was in the band. He proposed in April last year.

TV presenter Phillip Schofield and former weather girl Sally Meen were among the guests at the wedding.

About 150 members of the public gathered outside the church, sheltering under trees and umbrellas from heavy rain.

Ant and Dec, who appeared together as teenagers in BBC children's show Byker Grove and went on to have a brief pop career, have been named in a list of the UK's 50 greatest TV stars, for a programme due to be shown later this year.

They had their first major film roles in a movie earlier this year in Alien Autopsy, to mixed reviews.
