Marriage By Numbers

‘ONE can only assume camp TV presenter Dale Winton’s marriage to glamour model Nell McAndrew is some kind of grotesque made-for-TV stunt.

”Not bad for a transvestite,” says Dale

Or possibly a comment on the shallowness of our celebrity-obsessed age.

Whatever the motivation, the whole thing is like an identikit C-list wedding, except that the bride and groom have been accidentally drawn from the same box.

As for the guests, they have all been picked at random from Les Dennis’ address book.

In attendance were the likes of Kym Marsh and her beau Jack Ryder; Blue’s Antony Costa and fiancee Lucy Bolster; Toby Anstis, Mystic Meg, Gina G, Esther Rantzen, David Seaman, Nicholas Parsons, Tony Blackburn…

Dale’s best man was footballer Graeme Souness, while his best woman was Cilla Black. Nell, meanwhile, was given away by TV home improvements expert Phil Turner.

Kerry Katona, the pneumatically-chested former Atomic Kitten, said the occasion brought back memories of her wedding to Westlife fatty Brian McPudding.

Presumably, that was because all the canapes had disappeared within five minutes of the start of the reception.

”I think a few people found it hard to take seriously,” she told OK!, ”but if two people are in love it’s nice.”

And if two people are doing it only to boost their profile and pick up a bit fat cheque, that’s nice as well.
