Tony Robinson, 64, married his 30-year-old girlfriend Louise Hobbs yesterday (24.06.11)
Tony Robinson has got married.
The 'Time Team' star tied the knot with Louise Hobbs - who at 30 is 34 years the former 'Blackadder' star's junior - in a private ceremony on Italy's Amalfi coast yesterday (24.06.11).
The couple - who have been dating for six years - switched the timing of the ceremony at the last minute, bringing it forward in a bid to keep their nuptials as private as possible.
Tony and Louise arrived separately to the Palazzo Tolla in Ravello - and broke with tradition by not leaving together once they were wed.
The ceremony was blighted by building work as the venue is currently subject to renovations, meaning recent wedding have been conducted in a nearby park overlooking the sea, but Tony insisted their nuptials were carried out indoors.
In 1992, Tony ended his 20-year marriage to Mary Shepherd - with who he has two children - to embark on a relationship with singer-songwriter Teri Bramah.
Two years later, he vowed never to marry again, branding the institution a "nonsense", but announced his engagement to Louise in April this year.
