Stephen Fry has been vocal about his "bliss" following his wedding to Elliott Spencer in January, and now his husband has spoken out about their relationship for the first time. Talking at the BAFTAs, Elliott insisted that he couldn't be happier with Stephen despite some criticism about the 30-year age gap between them.

"I don't care what people think, Stephen is the love of my life, the light of my life," the 27-year-old told The Mirror.

Elliott revealed that the pair met three years ago after being introduced by friends and said that laughter had brought them together.

The aspiring comedian joined his husband at the BAFTA awards on Sunday night, where Stephen was on hosting duty. Elliot explained that he is currently taking a break from stand-up to concentrate on his photography.

"I'm just really happy and enjoying being married. It's all been really exciting and new. I'm not really doing anything else.

The 57-year-old also revealed that he and Elliott postponed their honeymoon until after the BAFTAs, and they are planning to go to a "secret location".

"We're planning a huge adventure. We start in Cuba, where we've booked a romantic hideaway, and then go to about three or four more countries."
