The Daily Mail goes for the age gap, too:

The BBC goes with “partner”:

The Guardian opts for “comedian”:

Stephen Fry has told fans he is “very, very happy” to announce his engagement to the comedian Elliot Spencer despite having hoped for a private wedding.

The Indy agrees:

Stephen Fry confirms he’s set to marry comedian Elliot Spencer: ‘It looks as though a certain cat is out of a certain bag’

Not a single newsreport in any of the mainstream papers mentions the words “gay” or “homosexual”.

Is this progress?
