Tina Turner and her partner of 26 years, music executive Erwin Bach, are believed to have wed last week in a civil ceremony in Switzerland.

According to reports, a Swiss municipal official confirmed to Reuters on Wednesday (17th July) that the pair married ''a few days ago'' in the Swiss city during a civil service ceremony.

The 75-year-old star is rumoured to be planning an intimate Buddhist wedding with Erwin at their home this Sunday (July 20th)with around 120 guests to celebrate their union.

The couple met in Germany in 1986, when Erwin managed EMI, Tina's record label.

Turner was previously married to Ike Turner, who she divorced in 1976 due to his abusive behaviour. He died in 2007.
