star Kieron Richardson has married his long-term boyfriend Carl Hyland.

The pair tied the knot yesterday (April 26) in a ceremony at Buxton Dome in the Peak District.


Richardson’s fellow castmembers Stephanie Davis, Jennifer Metcalfe, Jorgie Porter, Jazmine Franks, ­Gemma Merna and ­Bronagh Waugh all served as honorary bridesmaids, alongside his former Dancing on Ice co-star, Emily Atack.

Other Hollyoaks stars in attendance included Stephanie Waring, Fabrizio Santino, Anna Passey and Kirsty-Leigh Porter.

Emmett Scanlan, who previously starred as Richardson’s on-screen boyfriend, took the opportunity to call on Ireland to vote ‘Yes’ in the upcoming marriage equality referendum.

“My brother @MrkieronR is marrying his best mate Carl this week. It takes balls to marry, 4 in their case. Vote “yes” IRELAND #Love #Equality” he wrote on Twitter.

The couple first confirmed plans to marry last year, with the actor later promising a lavish affair including their dozen bridesmaids wearing bridal gowns and a performance from The Drifters.

Actress Jessica Ellis wrote on social media: “Just so happy that I live in a place that let’s two PEOPLE who love each other marry! Congratulation @MrkieronR and @carl_hyland”
