French 'married in seaside town'

Dawn French has reportedly married her partner Mark Bignell

Dawn French has married her partner Mark Bignell in a Cornish seaside town, it was reported.

The Vicar of Dibley star is believed to have had a hotel wedding with celebrity guests in Fowey, near St Austell.

The nuptials are 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.

Speaking on Radio 4's Desert Islands Discs last year, she talked about the end of her marriage to fellow comic Lenny Henry, saying: "Those last few months were pretty much like the first few months, we were good friends."

She added: "It was a tribute to the way we'd been married the way we accomplished it."

French's spokesman could not be contacted. A representative of Fowey Hall declined to comment
