Hugh Grant Co-Hosts Liz Hurley’s Wedding

hugh-grant-co-hosts-liz-hurleys-wedding.jpgHUGH Grant is to be the best man’s “co-host” at Liz Hurley wedding to Arun Nayer.

Of course, Grant has a history of weddings, it being the film Four Weddings & Funeral that made his name.

This time there is only one wedding. Plans for Grant to marry Jemima Khan have been shelved.

That’s one wedding. And it will go ahead. In spite of Grant’s presence at the do – he dated Hurley for 13 years – there will be no upset.

So why then does the Mail lead with: “How Hugh’s making a monkey out of Liz”?

The Mail says that as well as co-hosting the event, Grant will be making a speech. Doubtless, something like this: “I would just like to say this. I am, as ever, in bewildered awe of anyone who makes this kind of commitment that Liz and Arun have made today. I know I couldn’t do it and I think it’s wonderful they can.”

Indeed. But a source says the speech will be funnier than that. “It will be a comedy turn,” says a source, “but there will be no little asides or innuendoes about the relationship they had all those years.”

Which makes us wonder what Grant will be saying. What does an ex-boyfriend talk about in public at an ex-girlfriend’s wedding?

And is this Grant’s chance to make a monkey out of Liz, to make her look a fool?

No. The source says Hurley will be going through Grant’s speech, telling him what he is allowed to say.

Anorak has seen the following menu of speech subjects:

1. Grant says Hurley acted like a “right little Hitler” when she produced him on the straight-to-bargain-bin movie Mickey Blue Eyes. APPROVED!

2. Grant says Liz is no Divine Brown. Now there was a real woman! VERBOTEN!

3. Grant says he is delighted Hurley has found a man who makes her “fantastically happy”. APPROVED!

4. Grant says Hurley is the girl for him. And since he is no longer with Khan he is free to be with Hurley – his destiny. VERBOTEN!

So no monkey, unless you include the chimpanzee at a British zoo Grant has sponsored and named Elizabeth.

Says Grant in his monkey jacket…
