Little Britain star Matt Lucas has split from the partner he tied the knot with in a civil partnership ceremony in 2006.
Lucas and Kevin McGee said in a joint statement that their separation was "amicable."
They celebrated their partnership with a lavish, pantomime-themed reception, which Elton attended.
The men's statement said:
"It is with sadness that Matt and Kevin announce that their relationship has come to an end.
"Their separation is amicable. They ask the press to respect their privacy at this time and to exercise restraint in any reporting of this matter."
