Says Lembit: “My fellow parliamentarians have always been very warm towards me and Gabriela. When she joined me in the Commons one evening, a queue of MPs formed to give her a hug and wish her well.”

You can picture the scene as John Prescott warms his hard on his tray of sweet and sour prawn balls and moves in for the interfratisulated clinch, asking her if there any more like her at ‘ome.

Hello! wants to know what the response has been like to the impending nuptials in Gabi’s native Romania?

“Everybody in Romania has followed every single step of our relationship,” says she,” and Lembit is popular there so the news has been well–received there too.”

Lembit Opik, Liberal Democrat MP for Montgomeryshire, is a hit in Romania? Anorak recalls how Norman Wisdom was big in communist Albania, and how David Hasselhoff achieved pop music success in irony free Germany. Is Opik the Tom Jones of the Carpathians?

It’s “primarily a relationship of intellect, a meeting of minds,” says Opik. And we wonder if Opik thinks with his head? And if he marries Gabi cheeky can he become president of Romania?

“This relationship is not about my political ambitions,” says Opik. But Hello! notes that Opik will not marry Gabi until 2009 or 2010, after the next General Election.

If Opik loses his seat, will he pursue political career elsewhere?

If so, what’s the Romanian for “touch my bum?”
