Big Brother Break-Ups

 

Lately has been a sad time of Big Brother break-ups. Celebrity Big Brother runner-up Austin Armacost and his husband Jake Lees have separated while Andy West, who came fourth in the most recent series, has split from his fiance Ed Hutton who he got engaged to on the show.

Austin spoke to GuysLikeU about his split from Jake. The full piece can be read at the link below:

Writing on Twitter Austin said,

Jake also took to Twitter and said,

Following his split from Ed, Andy tweeted,

Very sad news. Best of luck to them all in their futures.

Keeping Up With Jaktin!

So it’s been just over a week since Austin Armacost existed the Big Brother house as this year’s runner up in CBB and I’ve been keeping up with what’s been happening with one of my new favourite celeb couples Austin and his adorable husband Jake Lees or Jaktin as I’ve christened them. I think they probably should have their own reality show and their sweet little Chihuahua who is in Jake’s twitter profile pic with them could be running around the place and James Hill could visit.

So just what’s been happening since in Jaktin world?

Well a good place to start might be the CBB afterparty where we got some lovely pics of the happy couple kissing and holding hands. We also had some pics of Austin and James as the CBB bromance goes from strength to strength.

Following the afterparty Austin and James settled back into married bliss with Jake tweeting,

By Friday, the couple were partying in Stroke where Austin was making an appearance in Gossip Stroke with Blue’s Duncan James and Jake tweeting,

And Austin tweeted about his belated letter from home from Jake,

By the 26th the busy couple were on Irish shores in Belfast at Boombox Belfast and still on Celtic shores in Polo Lounge Glasgow on the 27th. On Sunday Austin will be playing in the Sellebrity soccer match as will James.

Celebrity Wedding Fever!

Wedding fever has been in full swing over the last while with three fabulous celebrity weddings happening in showbiz land! I was meant to do a blog for each but unfortunately didn’t get to so I decided to do this blog with the four wonderful weddings for you to “awwwww” over like me!

The Front Lounge. 10 years ago. The scene was set for Aengus Mac Grianna to meet the love of his life Terry Gill while he was having a “liquid lunch” with some of his colleagues. The pair immediately got on, fell in love and the rest is history as they say.

The wedding of RTE newsreader Aengus Mac Grianna and his long-term boyfriend of 10 years Terry Gill in Ballymacgarvey village, Co. Meath. Mac Grianna and friend and colleague Anne Doyle, who Mac Grianna admitted previously on The Late Late Show would be giving him away, arrived in a black Rolls-Royce to the venue where Mac Grianna and Gill said their vows and became husband and husband in front of 150 members of their family as well as close friends which included Maia Dunphy, Yvonne Keating and Tracy Piggott who all appeared on Celebrity Masterchef with Mac Grianna as well as many colleagues of Mac Grianna’s from the newsroom at RTE such as Kate Egan, Michael Murphy, Eileen Dunne and Teresa Mannion.

Gill, from Westwind Alpacas, was walked up the aisle with his mother Eva Gill for his and Aengus’ big day.

Also Moya Brennan and Cormac De Barra played many traditional Irish ballads at the humanist ceremony.

In the run-up to the big day, Doyle joked that she felt like she was Mrs Bennett ‘Pride and Prejudice’ at the moment saying,

“It’s weddings, weddings, weddings at the moment. All I seem to be talking and thinking about are weddings these days,” in reference to Mac Grianna’s wedding and also the wedding of her boyfriend Dan McGrattan’s son which took place the week before.

Mac Grianna said of choosing Doyle for the major honour that it was because he has known her for years and added,

“From the very beginning Anne always looked out for me. She has watched and guided me along the way and at key junctions in my life – she has always been there. She has been a major influence on me. She’s a one-off.”

Everyone broke into applause when the marriage ceremony ended and congratulated the happy couple.

Mac Grianna and Gill will go to the UK in the next few weeks to legally marry and Mac Grianna has spoken about marriage equality previously saying,

“It’s simply a question of equality. All of my brothers and sisters are married and I don’t see any difference as to why I shouldn’t be allowed that too. I’m not prepared to take a lesser status.”

Well said Aengus.

The couple went on honeymoon in the days after the wedding.

The style was amazing with Aengus donning a wonderful blue suit and Terry looking dapper in a grey suit while Eva and Anne went for floral, white and blue combinations. The colour co-ordination was fabulous with blue been a theme which ran through all four of their outfits. Terry’s ode to blue was the least visible but was still there on his tie.

Model and former Miss Ireland Sarah Morrissey married her long-term boyfriend of 8 years St Patrick’s Athletic coach Pat Jennings Jr in Buggiano in Italy.

Morrissey looked amazing in a custom dress designed by Irish designer Peter O’Brien and paired the stunning dress with metallic sandals and understated stud earrings while Jennings Jr looked dapper in a navy suit.

The ceremony was attended by close friends which included Morrissey’s fellow models Nadia Forde and Yomiko Chen.

Next up stylist and TV presenter Angela Scanlon and eco-entrepreneur Roy Horgan whose wedding took place in Wicklow.

Scanlan wore an understated and beautiful dress which was in a vintage style by Irish designer Sorcha O’Raghallaigh. The dress had gold embroidery on top and was floor length and Horgan wore a navy suit and looked amazing.

Congratulations to the three couples on their big days! May you all have a lifetime of happiness in your married bliss! 🙂

Attitude Magazine’s Attitude Love & Marriage issue On Sale Now!

Attitude Magazine’s Attitude Love & Marriage issue is currently on shelves and features Union J star Jaymi Hensley and his fiancé Olly Marmon who have become the first same sex couple to feature in advertising for popular wedding tailor Moss Bros. The couple, who will marry at the end of the year, feature in pictures wearing looks from the brand’s spring collection.

The happy couple, who have been together for over four years are seen in a touching clinch smiling at each other.

Jaymi previously said,

‘I’m getting married in December. It’s going to be a big day… Management have been trying to say the next tour is in December so maybe we’ll get married during the interval.’

The advert is a big departure for men’s formal-wear firm Moss Bros which was founded in 1851 and the national campaign aims to celebrate the historic change in British law which will, from 29th March, let same sex couples marry in England and Wales.

Chief Executive Officer Brian Brick said,

“Moss Bros are proud to welcome all couples in store and help dress them for the most important day of their lives – as we have done for the last eight generations.” 

In order to realise this, Moss Bros joined forces with the magazine Attitude, as the fashion sponsor for its special issue ‘Attitude Love & Marriage’. 

It is the first wedding magazine in the UK exclusively targeting the gay market. The collection is exclusively featured in “Attitude Love & Marriage” and 70 Moss Bros store windows nationwide.

Attitude Managing Director Mike Buckley said:

“This is history in the making and we are truly humbled that a British high street institution such as Moss Bros have shown their commitment to equal marriage by supporting our Love & Marriage special issue and dressing their windows to mark the partnership.”

Also featured in the issue of Attitude is Sir Elton John and David Furnish who are planning their wedding after gay marriage was legalised.

The couple were one of the first couples to enter into a civil partnership in December 2005 and eight years on the singer and filmmaker who have been together for more than 20 years and they have two sons, Zachary, three, and one-year-old Elijah, are planning their wedding day.

David Furnish wrote in Attitude magazine’s Love & Marriage special:

“Elton and I will marry – as a high-profile couple, we feel it is our duty to do it, to make sure that everyone knows that this is something that many gay men living in this country never dreamed would happen. When it was announced that gay couples were able to obtain a civil partnership, Elton and I did so on the day it came into law. As something of a showman, [Elton] is aware that whatever he says and does, people will sit up and take notice -so what better way to celebrate that historic moment in time. Our big day made the news, it was all over the internet within minutes of happening and front page news the next day. Elton and I both think there is a massive difference between calling someone your ‘partner’ and calling them your ‘husband’. Partner’ is such an impersonal word and doesn’t adequately describe the love we have for each other. When Zachary and Elijah are grown up and having children of their own, they will – hopefully – be living in a world where everyone can be equal, when being married isn’t about whether you’re straight or gay, but simply about being human.”

Also featuring is John Whaite and his boyfriend Paul Atkins who are the cover stars. They are discussing their country wedding.

Also featuring is Corrie actor Charlie Condou and his fiancé Cameron Laux.

Attitude Love & Marriage is out now.

Union J’s Jaymi Hensley Speaks About How Meeting Fiancé Olly Marmon Stopped His Seven Week Dating Curse And Talks About Their Upcoming Wedding!

Jaymi has spoke about his relationship with Olly.

Jaymi has spoke about his relationship with Olly.

Union J’s Jaymi Hensley has revealed that meeting his fiancé Olly Marmon stopped his seven week dating curse after the pair met when they were both 18. He admits that he didn’t have the greatest luck with dating before they met saying to Guilty Pleasures at the London Lesbian and Gay Switchboard 40th anniversary gala at The Waldorf Hilton, London’s Palm Court, supported by Patron Tequila, “All my relationships ended after seven weeks before I met Olly. So it was like a seven week curse! But then I met the one and now it’s hundreds of weeks later. I think we were really lucky and we found each other. We understand each other and like the same things. Our personalities really match. We are really lucky to have found this relationship.”

Admitting that he is a bit of a perfectionist, he says he will be on alert on their wedding day to make sure no relatives show up wearing garishly coloured outfits.

‘I am a perfectionist and my worst thing is colour schemes. I’m really worried my aunt will turn up in lime green and my cousin will turn up in orange and everyone will look like a living sweet shop,’ he laughed.

‘There are certain colours I can’t let people wear! There’s nothing worse than you’ve got your wedding photo and everyone looks lush and then there’s someone in an awful coloured hat or dress.’
