Newscaster Aengus Mac Grianna has revealed that his former colleague Anne Doyle will be giving him away during his upcoming UK wedding.

Speaking to host Ryan Tubridy on last night's The Late Late Show (May 9), 49-year-old Mac Grianna said: "The lovely Anne Doyle [is giving him away]. A true legend, but she is absolutely fabulous and I am delighted."

When asked about going to the UK to marry, he added: "Civil Partnership has been a huge step forwards but it’s not marriage. It’s a lesser form of marriage. Now I am free to marry, but I can only marry a women so being gay, clearly that’s not going to work. So I am not free here to marry the person I love, the person I want to marry and commit to and spend the rest of my life with."
