Actor Sir Patrick Stewart has revealed on Twitter that he has tied the knot with his girlfriend Sunny Ozell.

The 73-year-old Mirfield-born star, who starred as Captain Jean-Luc Picard in Star Trek: The Next Generation, posted a bizarre picture of him and his new wife in a colourful ball pit with the caption: "Yes, married."

 

And it appears that his long-time friend and X-Men co-star Sir Ian McKellen officiated the ceremony.

Sir Ian, who played Gandalf in the Lord Of The Rings, posted a photo on his official Facebook page showing him holding up a black T-shirt with "Minister" written on it.
