Gay TV Team Gets Hitched

It’s a blessed day for gay twosome Colin McAllister and Justin Ryan. The Scottish homosexuals and their public relations team announced today that the men sealed the nuptial deal. From the very excited press release:

Colin McAllister and Justin Ryan confirmed today that, after 22 years together, they have married. The dynamic Scottish design duo were secretly betrothed at the Chelsea Registry office in central London, England.

It was only after experiencing life in Canada that the couple decided to make their long standing relationship official.

“I’m not sure if we would have decided to get married if we hadn’t moved to, and fallen in love with Canada. After a year of living in Toronto, filming Home Heist, it became clear to us that it was time to tie the knot. Canada is such a progressive nation, so welcoming and open-mindedly liberal about gay marriage, that we felt thoroughly inspired,” says Ryan.

McAllister added, “Previously every time someone asked us about getting married, I’d joke that even after such a long time I still wasn’t sure if Justin was the right man! Let’s just say that this year, I’m SURE.”

The service was kept a closely guarded secret, and while the couple’s mothers were both aware of the impending nuptials and gave their blessings, the ceremony was attended by just two close friends, Elaine and George Ponte, who acted as witnesses. Afterward the happy couple and their two witnesses celebrated at The Wolseley on Piccadilly, a favourite London celebrity hangout.

Well, congratulations to you both, gents, even though we’ve never, ever heard of you…

      Just because their show doesn’t air in these United States of America doesn’t mean they are not famous to millions throughout the UK, Canada and countless other countries in worldwide syndication.

      How old are they, they have been together for 22 years…

      @ mrmansonx :

      Colin is 38 and Justin is 39. It might be the other way round though. They’ve been together since they were like 17 after meeting in a club and catching each other’s attention by laughing at a fat woman’s breasts.

      I’m not a stalker, I swear. *shifty eyes*

      Hey Queerty, if you were not so obsessed with some 2nd rate Russian porn star you might notice that there is a great big gay world out there with lots of really cool people doing really cool things! These two are amazing and we love them here in Canada!

      Tune into the Lifestyle Channel in Oz to see them – we’ve been watching them in Melbourne all this month. They’re pretty popular over here too. When did they get hitched? And what do great designers wear to their own wedding?

      Thanks Dick. I was wondering why they weren’t on BBCA, which is one of the channels I watch most often on DirecTV.
