Ant McPartlin has been forking out the cash when it comes to making sure his wedding with fiancée Anne-Marie Corbett is perfect.

The TV presenter has been getting ready to marry his other half after the two got engaged on Christmas Eve last year.

Anne-Marie and Ant were reportedly initially meant to marry abroad but Covid restrictions meant they had to keep it in the UK.

The 45-year-old is thought to have spent £100,000 so his close pals can stay at a lavish hotel after the upcoming wedding.

Around 100 guests will be attending the wedding now that restrictions have been lifted around the country.

Guests are being spoiled rotten

Insiders spoke to MailOnline and said Ant has told friends to send their spa bill to his £5,000-a-night honeymoon suite.

The hotel the guests will stay at is reportedly in Hampshire.

Ant and Anne-Marie are tying the knot in a few days on Friday, August 6.

The report from the publication also states that the accommodation for the big event is "more expensive than The Ritz."

The other half of Ant's comedy duo, Declan Donnelly, is thought to be his best man on the special day.

Speaking to The Sun, an insider recently said: "Neither of them wants the razzmatazz of a showbiz wedding. They just want their nearest and dearest with them.

“It will be a simple but beautiful ceremony, without the glare of the spotlight. They’re both extremely excited and can’t wait to tie the knot.

"But they’re desperate to keep a lid on things. Those who know have been told it’s top secret."

A previous report claimed that the loved-up couple was hoping to keep the wedding low-key.

It was suggested the pair were keeping the guest list to their closest friends and family members.

Ant was previously married to make-up artist Lisa Armstrong, with the two getting married in 2006.

Their event was at Cliveden House Hotel in Buckinghamshire, with 150 guests in attendance.

The two were married for 11 years before announcing in January 2018 that they were getting divorced.

Meanwhile, Anne-Marie and Ant were first spotted together in March that same year.

After the two got engaged, Ant revealed to Digital Spy it was "a lovely way to end the year".

He said: "You know, there were flowers and afternoon tea in front of the Christmas tree. Lovely. It was lovely."
