Ant McPartlin’s wedding to Anne-Marie Corbett is taking place today, Saturday 7 August.

The TV star and his fiancee will tie the knot at St Michael's Church in the sleepy Hampshire village of Heckfield.

It’s reported that around 100 people will be attending the nuptials, including some of Ant’s famous pals.

His longtime best pal and presenting partner Declan Donnelly will be on hand to celebrate.

Britain's Got Talent judge Amanda Holden, This Morning presenters Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield and Saturday Night Takeaway's Stephen Mulhern are other celebs who are expected to be on the guest list.

However, according to The Sun, Simon Cowell won't be attending.

OK! has contacted a representative for Ant for comment.

Ant and Dec work with music mogul Simon on Britain’s Got Talent and have opened up in the past about a showdown they had with him over "editing" of the show back in 2012.

Ant and Dec flew out to LA to talk to Simon – writing about it in their book, Once Upon A Tyne.

"The audition days had been long, which in itself we don't mind, but after filming interviews and interacting with every single act, as well as making jokes, giving reactions and everything else we always do, we found that when the show went out on TV, we hardly seemed to feature in it at all," they wrote in their book.

"We began to feel we were wasting our time doing the auditions because all the work we were doing was ending up on the cutting room floor."

Dec wrote that Simon promised things would change and he kept his word when they returned to filming.

The trio have now moved on and enjoy a good relationship.

The day before Ant’s wedding, preparations were underway with trucks of flowers seen arriving to the church.

The couple will say their “I dos” in the stunning historic church that dates back to the 13th Century and has a striking stained glass window and the church itself is surrounded by an ancient burial site.

A loading truck was seen and workers were spotted unloading metal fences that will be used to cordon off the area to give the couple and their guests some privacy for the special day.

The trucks carrying the wedding flowers to the church soon followed once the fences were erected to get the stunning venue ready for the lavish but intimate wedding.

It has been claimed that Ant and Anne-Marie's guests will stay in a grand stately home, which has been converted into a hotel in Hampshire this weekend.

Ant is also said to have told his guests to send their spa bills to his and Anne-Marie's honeymoon suite.

Ant began dating Anne-Marie Corbett in 2018 following his split from Lisa Armstrong, and the pair got engaged on Christmas Eve 2020.
