I know, given the competition, it was never going to be wedding of the year, but Ed Miliband's wedding has generated its fair share of interest already.
A source close to the Labour leader told me last night that after the story was broken by the Doncaster Free Press yesterday, one of the first phone calls the team fielded was from OK! magazine. Apparently a sum wasn't discussed, but they were told that there won't be a 'happy Miliband couple' spread going in there.
By announcing a date, Ed has generated a certain amount of speculation that he's doing this for political reasons. But he's strongly denied this, saying:
"For me, it's a way of of expressing my love and commitment to Justine ... When we had children, we decided it was right to formalise and make that public commitment. But different people make different choices ... I think marriage is a good institution. But in the end stable families come in different forms."
He also insisted that he did not feel under political pressure to marry. "If I had, I would have got married earlier," he said.
Roll on May 27...
