Little Britain Star Opens Up About Ex-Husband's Suicide

| Filed under: AnglophiliaSad Sad


So unbelievably sad.

British comedian Matt Lucas, who lost his ex-husband, Kevin McGee, to suicide five months ago, is opening up about the horrific tragedy for the first time, and admitted that his Little Britain co-star, David Williams, has been instrumental is his recovery!

He says:

"For a long time it was amazing. We were just so stupid. I am stupid. If I was ever going to end up with anyone they would have to be stupid. I will pull my pants up to my nipples. If I'm attractive, it's a by-product of stupidity. And I don't care. I don't give a fuck. I'm not looking for a partner right now. People will understand if they're aware of some of the things that have been going on in my life. I'm not necessarily looking for a serious relationship but I like meeting new friends. Someone nice. If I was looking, I would look for someone who can just tolerate. Someone who can just walk in when I've got a slice of cake on my head."

"David's my soul mate. He's my brother, honestly. He's been there every step of the way. He's never, ever let me down, and I hope I've never him. This isn't public knowledge but I'm going be his best man at his wedding. That extends beyond being someone's professional partner. We've known each other 20 years this year. We're doing a new series and it's not Little Britain. It's something brand new, with all new characters, and we're going to film it in August and September. We felt it was time to do something else completely different, with completely new characters - a whole new idea."

We're so glad he has friends supporting him during this difficult time and keeping busy with new projects. Those sort of distractions can be so instrumental in dealing with grief!

Keep your chin up, Matt! We're thinking of you!

    Kevin is extremely talented (hilarious!) and he's fortunate to have David as a good friend as he goes through this difficult time. His humor and new projects will help him heal.

    Well now perhaps he can switch sides, get a taste of the straight life…..then on second thought maybe not due to Rickee outing himself….such is life

    Little Britain USA was great. I wish they would have done a second season. I didn't know any of this about him. Poor guy.

    Lucas & Walliams are the most brilliant comic geniuses of our age. We are beyond privileged to have them entertain us! Good for you, Matt, to prevail in the face of despair, you will find the one who will love you as you are, and be happy. Congrats to David! His gf's make Leonardo's look like cafeteria lunch-ladies!

    how is this at all opening up about the tragedy? he's just gushing about david and talking about wearing cake on his head.

  12. 12

    who cares? who is he?

  13. 13

    It's David WALLIAMS you stupid yanks!!! Get the name right.

  14. 14

    Walliams. the most brilliant comedy duo of our time! love to them both!

  15. 15

    Ewww. this guy gives me the creeps. Who the hell is he anyway?

  16. 16

    It's WALLIAMS!!!

  17. 17

    Bless her heart. It must be sad. Plus to look like he does. Has he never seen the sun? poor old thang. She needs to get a tan, grow some hair or get a unit, and lose about 100 lbs, then he may be cute.

    Re: vodcal – fuck you, you stupid limey. If you don't like the US, then stay off our sites. We don't need your shit. Saying stuff like that will get your ass kicked in this country

    So sad. His costar's name is David Walliams though. Not Williams.

    Re: scandal1
    Scandal1, you sound like one hell of a redneck hillbilly fuckcase.
    Life must be hard on you.

    Poor Daffyd, the only gay in the village.

  22. 22

    WHO THE FUCK IS THIS GUY?!?! I live in Liverpool and have never heard of the lad!!

  23. 23

    Nothing terribly sad here — just positive goodness from both Matt and Mr. Walliams! ADORE them both — Little Britain & their team rules!!

    Pretty funny how when Brittany Murphy's husband talks about his WIFE'S death that's not ok and he's just looking for attention, but when a gay talks about his boyfriends death it gets put into a good light and you feel sorry for him. haha 'HIGHlarious'

  25. 25

    Ugh! If he loved his boy so much than why the divorce. Don't gay's use the words "for better and for worse"? Get over it. News Flash…everything has a beginning and an end. You'll die, I'll die, everyone and everything will pass on. This is the way it works. Like drugs or a bad habit Matt should drop the whole gay thing. If he was in a normal natural relationship with a female his life might actually make sense.

    Re: Brittdale – i like where your heads at

    Awful. :( He is great.

    All my love to him … he has made me laugh for years and years now. I am a huge fan and he is the last person that deserves to go through something like this.
    I wish him all the love in the world and I hope that he heals fast. Time will only tell. Keep your chin up my friend and thank you for always making us laugh!!

    Wow .. it is always amazing to see how people write about stuff like this. You people need to learn the emotion of mercy. Heaven forbid you are ever treated the way you are responding to this! I am disgusted with people lately… gay or straight they are human and go through the same things.. compassion people!

  31. 31

    Re: Low – Let me guess, you think my post is stupid because it's correct. Logic is just too difficult for you to deal with. Broke wedding vows, Everything dies, Being gay is not natural…all is true.

    Now concerning you, on another post you stated that Elisabeth Hasselbeck baths her daughter with a swimsuit on. That statement by you is not just stupid, it's a flat out lie. Simply post the link to prove your statement. You don't have to agree with others but when you lie your true character is reveled.

    Re: SnowBoarder4LIFE – What, you live in England and you've never heard of Little Britain? Or shooting Stars with Vic reeves and Bob Mortimer? He's "the baby" George Dawes. If you've never heard of either of those you must have been living under a rock!
