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!
"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!
