Konnie Huq and Charlie Brooker elope in Las Vegas

In order to avoid the attention of a celebrity wedding, seeming odd couple Konnie Huq of TV's X Factor and acerbic TV critic Charlie Brooker eloped in Las Vegas on Monday, July 26th.

A friend told the Mirror, “They wanted to marry as soon as possible and managed to squeeze a few days out of their schedules. It was simple and ­elegant. Konnie wore a white dress and Charlie wore a suit. They’re ­blissfully happy and are thrilled to be married.”

They had reportedly intended to wed earlier this year after secretly dating for nine months, but pushed it back when Huq signed on to host The Xtra Factor. Of their percieved differences, Huq told in a recent interview,
“We’re not ‘opposites ­attract’ as people think. I’ve got an evil sense of humour and Charlie’s more of a softie than you’d think.”
