  • Bob Geldof Marries Jeanne Marine After Nineteen Years Together

    The Geldof family had something to smile about this weekend after 63-year-old Bob Geldof got hitched to his long-term partner Jeanne Marine.

Fi was seen to be getting into a panic about not having her passport in back in time for the family's trip across the English channel and then raised eyebrows when she described herself and her fiancé, Andrew Robertson, as 'wedding w*nkers' before clarifying that it wasn't them who were tying the knot.
