Irvine Welsh has married actress Emma Currie, sharing the news with a sweet post on his Instagram.

The 63-year-old Scottish author revealed he had married his partner, former Taggart actress Currie, in a short post on Instagram.

Currie also shared two of images of the occasion to her own Instagram page, simply captioned: "Today I married the love of my life."

In a post on his Instagram earlier this year, Welsh revealed he had proposed to Currie. He captioned an image of Currie smiling and showing her ring to the camera: "My god. She said yes. Pissing wet day in Scotland but she said yes. So f*** everything else. Never been so happy in my life."

The author gained recognition for his depictions of raw Scottish experiences and his most famous novel Trainspotting was made into a film, directed by Danny Boyle and starring Ewan McGregor and Robert Carlyle.

The film, released in 1996, follows a group of friends suffering from heroin addiction in a deprived area of Edinburgh.

Its sequel, T2 Trainspotting, was released more than two decades later in 2017.
