TV's Alan and beau Karl name the day for huge wedding bash
Ireland AM's Alan Hughes has revealed how he and fiance Karl Broderick are planning a massive bash in Dublin to mark their forthcoming nuptials.
Last April saw the popular TV presenter becoming engaged to his partner of 17 years after songwriter Karl popped the question at their Malahide home.
And they have earmarked Friday, September 30, as the big day, as it marks their 18th anniversary.
"We are going to have a big wedding. We haven't confirmed everything so I don't want to pre-empt things but but it will be in Dublin at the end of September," he said.
Earlier this week on Celebrity Salon, viewers watched him express his desire to marry his long-term partner -- but that he wanted Karl to ask him.
He revealed how shortly after that episode was filmed last April, his other half duly obliged after show producers let him leave the reality house for a quick visit back to his northside home.
"I went back to the house and the night that Karl proposed, all you could hear was screams around Malahide!" said Alan.
Karl explained: "I had two hours to get ready so I was running around the house trying to sort everything out.
"It was so funny because he walked in the door before I was even ready and when I asked him, he was like 'Oh my God, I've got to go back to Celebrity Salon now.'"
Meanwhile, Alan said that Celebrity Salon has had an "amazing" reaction from viewers .
