Dawn French has married her partner Mark Bignell in a hotel ceremony in the Cornish seaside town of Fowey, it has been reported.

The wedding is said to have taken place in Fowey Hall, which is described on its website as "one of the most impressive family hotels in Cornwall" and "sophisticated yet uncomplicated, luxurious yet laid back, grand yet comfy".

It claims to be "perfect" for weddings and provides an "idyllic setting".

French, who won millions of viewers in the 13 years she played the title character in Richard Curtis's hit sitcom, married Lenny Henry in 1984, but they divorced in 2010.

They have an adopted daughter called Billie.

A representative of Fowey Hall declined to comment
