Johnny Vegas, who starred in ITV show Benidorm, tied the knot during a small ceremony at a ranch in Spain. The comic, 39, whisked PR consultant Maia, 34, to the picturesque country estate outside Seville for the nuptials in front of 120 family and friends.

Maia, who invited her priest from her native Dublin to preside over the marriage, is rarely seen in public with Johnny but he has described her as his soulmate. An insider revealed: “It was a beautiful and very romantic ceremony in a gorgeous setting. Maia looked stunning.

“Johnny is clearly besotted with her and they never stop smiling when they’re together. It was very touching.

“It meant a lot to Maia that her own priest from Ireland could carry out the service and both families seemed to be delighted with the ceremony.” Johnny, who is famed for drinking escapades, made sure everyone had a good time.

The source said: “Unsurprisingly, there were a lot of sore heads next morning.”


Guests were treated to a traditional Mediterranean menu including gazpacho, cured meats and salad.

While enjoying gallons of refreshments, guests danced the night away to Johnny and Maia’s favourite songs, which were played on the groom’s iPod.

The couple have now flown off on honeymoon.

Johnny, who is from St Helens in Merseyside and whose real name is Michael Pennington, began his relationship with Maia a year after his divorce from first wife Catherine came through in 2008.

Catherine, known as Kitty, and Johnny married in San Francisco in 2002 after a whirlwind romance.

But the relationship was reported to have broken down a year later.

Johnny, who was in comedy Benidorm until 2009, said her drinking had become excessive. She denied the claims.
