Fry, the host of TV quiz QI — the title stands for Quite Interesting — has generously told former make-up and vitamin salesman Daniel, who is 12 years his junior, that he can keep the proceeds of the sale, but friends say their break-up includes a binding confidentiality agreement.
According to pals, Fry has made no secret of the collapse of their romance and has, I gather, been spending a lot of time with aspiring young actor Steven Webb, 26, who appeared in Alan Bennett’s acclaimed play The History Boys at the National Theatre. They are often out and about together at premieres and parties and such things.
Stephen Fry has warned we should prepare for the internet of the future to avoid a 'nightmare' dystopian existence.
The actor and comedian criticised 'technophobes' who have been too slow to adapt to what he described as the greatest change in the history of mankind.
Fry's personal assistant said it was a private matter, adding: "Stephen Fry is very happy and proud to say that he has set the wheels in motion for a wedding sometime in the future but no date has been set due to a busy work schedule." Fans have now rushed to congratulate the comedian on the news, inundating his Twitter feed with messages of support.
The QI star, wearing a green blazer and red cardigan, said: 'We are off now to celebrate our engagement.
Fry was in California for a number of months at the time to write his memoirs, which are due to be published in September. Their friendship, will, of course have been hard for Daniel, who had devoted his life to Stephen.He has been spotted regularly with Elliott, a writer, in recent months, as they enjoyed themselves at Ascot racecourse, the Savoy hotel and in Fry's home town.A source told the Sun the younger man had given Fry a "new lust for life" after suffering from depression and loneliness, adding: "He has found new hope in Elliott and they thrive off one another." Documents seen by the newspaper show the couple made a formal application to marry at a register office in Dereham, Norfolk on December 23.Only last year, a top-hatted Fry gave away Daniel’s mother, flamboyant Gertrude, Baroness Von Posch, 68, at her wedding to businessman Roger Kember.While Yasmin Le Bon does not share the view of some of her fellow mannequins that the age of the supermodel is dead, she does feel that catwalk stars are losing their grasp on the industry as actresses encroach on to their territory. I’m not moaning about actresses taking my job, but . .’The mother-of-three, whose daughter Amber followed her into the profession, adds: ‘They [models] are not like actresses.We won't be going abroad until after the Baftas.' Mr Fry will host the awards for the tenth time next month.
