Bob Geldof confirms marriage

Bob Geldof has confirmed he has got married again.

The Boomtown Rats singer was reported to have wed Jeanne Marine - his partner of 19 years - in France last month and he says he had a "good day" celebrating his nuptials with friends and family, including his daughters Pixie and Fifi, and Fifi's fiance Andrew Robertson.

He confirmed to The Sun newspaper: "I'm really happy. It was a good day. It was great fun."

The 63-year-old musician - who proposed to Jeanne shortly after his daughter Peaches died from a heroin overdose last year - was seen with his gold wedding band on Tuesday (05.05.15) evening, his first public appearance after his big day.

Bob - who was previously married to late presenter Paula Yates - has admitted in the past he never expected to find love again after splitting from his first wife.

He said: "Why did she like me? It is a late realisation for the ageing Geldof that all humans are loveable. I love her. I thought I would never get this again.

"It was an improbable encounter between a woman who doesn't speak English and a boy who doesn't speak French, between a stunning, beautiful woman and a ruined, ruined man.
