London: British actor Stephen Fry, who was most recently seen in 'Hobbit: The Battle of Five Armies', is set to marry his 27-year-old partner Elliot Spencer. The comedian let the cat out of the bag via Twitter. "Oh. It looks as though a certain cat is out of a certain bag," Fry, 57, tweeted.

"I'm very very happy of course but had hoped for a private wedding. Fat chance!" He later tweeted: "Thank you all SO much for your kind congratulations. Deeply touched xxx."

Spencer is a comedian and writer. The duo have made a formal application to marry at a register office in Fry's home county of Norfolk and now have a year to tie to knot.

The legislation allowing same-sex marriages in England came into force in March 2014. Gay couples who were already in civil partnerships could convert this to a marriage from December 10. Elton John and David Furnish were one of the first couples to marry following the legislation.
