    With the Royal Wedding just hours away, and speculation over the designer of Kate Middleton’s all-important bridal gown reaching fever pitch, Brit designer Bruce Oldfield has ruled himself out of the running, revealing he has not designed Kate’s big day dress.


    Earlier this month, bookmaker Paddy Power has received so many wagers on Bruce Oldfield to design the royal dress, that it suspended betting – suspecting that the surge in bets originated from an insider leak.

    But today the British designer – who has previously created bridal gowns for Samantha Cameron and Jemima Khan, as well as red carpet pieces for Rihanna and Sienna Miller – has confirmed he has definitely not created Kate’s wedding dress.

    ‘It has been such a subject of rumour and speculation over the past months, but I am not designing it,’ the London-based couturier said in a statement released today.

    ‘Catherine will undoubtedly look spectacular – she has a fantastic figure and knows well what suits her. I shall be intrigued to see her choice of design.’

    Last week little-known Libélula designer, Sophie Cranston – who was tipped as another favourite – also ruled herself out, revealing Kate definitely won’t be wearing one of her dresses as she walks down the aisle.

    ‘For the purpose of clarification we are not designing Kate Middleton’s wedding dress,’ a spokesman for the designer said in a statement. ‘We, like everyone else, can’t wait to find out who is.’
