  • Billie Piper set to wed on New Year's Eve - and have the engagement at Chris Evans' pub

    Billie Piper is set to marry her boyfriend, Laurence Fox, on New Year’s Eve – and will hold the reception at ex-husband Chris Evans’s pub.

    The Doctor Who star, 25, met 29-year-old Laurence – the son of actor James Fox – when they co-starred in a play.

    The pair are said to be marrying in St Mary’s church in Midhurst, a short walk from the £750,000 cottage they bought in the village this summer. They are then expected to move the wedding party on to the Lickfold Inn, the third pub recently bought by Chris, who will join them for the celebrations.

    Billie and Chris were divorced in June after five years of marriage but, obviously, remain on excellent terms.

    In fact, Billie and Laurence even attended Chris’s August wedding to new love, professional golfer, Natasha Shishmanian, and the foursome are often seen out in the pubs of Midhurst enjoying burgers and beers together.

    The couple are said to be in talks with a celebrity magazine to cover the wedding.
