Billie Piper set to wed at Easebourne

ACTRESS Billie Piper has named the day and is planning to marry actor Laurence Fox in Easebourne parish church on New Year's Eve.

The celebrity, previously married to Radio Two DJ Chris Evans, lives in Easebourne with Laurence, who is the son of renowned actor James Fox, veteran of more than 50 films and TV roles. Laurence’s uncle is Edward Fox, star of such greats as A Bridge Too Far and Edward and Mrs Simpson.

The news has delighted neighbours. One villager told the Observer this week: “They are a lovely couple and very much part of villlage life.”

Billie is making a return to Dr Who in March as his companion Rose Tyler and Laurence is starring alongside Kevin Whately in the sequel to Morse.

Meanwhile, former husband Chris Evans is also in the news this week with the announcement that he has bought the Lickfold Inn.
