“It’s been incredible,” Elliott told The Mirror. “We met at a house party three years ago after we were introduced by friends. The rest is history.”

He added: “Humour is the key to everything. We laugh all the time.

“Humour is the binding thing in our life. I think that’s what brought us together.

“Stephen is the love of my life, the light of my life.”

The 27-year-old writer and comedian, who is 30 years Stephen’s junior, insisted that there wasn’t a problem with their differences in age.

He told The Sun: “I am aware of what’s been said, but all that matters is how much we love each other. We really do – and we’re really happy.

“It’s been nice that we’ve been treated like any other couple. That’s important to us.”

Following their low-key wedding at a register office in Dereham, Norfolk, the loved-up pair are now planning a big bash to celebrate with family and friends.
