David Gest to be Matt Willis' best man

24 Apr 2007

Former Busted star Matt Willis has revealed that he has asked fellow I'm A Celebrity contestant David Gest to be his best man.

The American music producer and Matt became friends during the filming of the reality show and have since become the closest of friends.

Gest is currently on a long holiday in the UK as he gets to work promoting a TV show of his own.

Now he has been given a fantastic honour by has pal Matt who wants him to be best man at his wedding to TV presenter Emma Griffiths next August.

'David is probably my best mate right now. I speak to him every day on the phone and hang out with him about three times a week,' Matt told the Mirror.

'I sound like I'm having an affair with him but I really care about him. We're completely different and there is a 30-year age gap but it doesn't ever come into play.

'He's a really great, funny guy,' he added.

Matt also revealed that the wedding is likely to take place somewhere 'between London and Birmingham', where his wife-to-be is from.
