Bob Mortimer Reveals He Got Married To His Long-Term Girlfriend Before Heart Operation


Bob Mortimer Vic Reeves

British comedy icon Bob Mortimer, one half of the legendary Vic & Bob partnership, has revealed that he got married just before the triple heart bypass operation he underwent at the end of last year.

Mortimer’s health problems, and the lengthy recovery time he needed afterwards, meant that he was forced to cancel the first leg of his and Vic Reeves’ 25th anniversary tour around the UK last October.

Speaking to a press conference ahead of the re-launched tour on Wednesday (January 13th), he revealed that his severe health situation prompted him to get married to Lisa Matthews, his partner of 22 years, before he went under the knife.

Bob Mortimer Vic Reeves

British comedy performer Bob Mortimer has been forced to cancel a significant part of his upcoming UK tour alongside his long-term professional partner Vic Reeves, after he underwent a triple bypass heart operation earlier this week.

56 year old Mortimer, one half of ‘Vic and Bob’, had been due to perform in Glasgow in early November to kick off the ’25 Years of Reeves & Mortimer: the Poignant Moments’ tour. However, the initial run of engagements from November 8th to December 4th have been cancelled, with no news yet as to any potential rearrangements.

The performer’s spokesman, Neil Reading, gave a statement on Wednesday (October 28th) alongside the news of the operation. “Bob would like to thank his consultant and all the nursing staff at the hospital for looking after him so well. He now needs several weeks to fully recover, so unfortunately the first leg of the UK tour will be cancelled.”

Twenty Twelve Snubbed At The British Comedy Awards, But Jack Whitehall Wins The Crown

The British Comedy Awards were held last night, presented once again by Jonathan Ross. It saw a room of the country's funniest people come under one roof to celebrate and ridicule one another, as is the British tradition. 

Twenty Twelve and The Thick of It have been compared since the former hit screens in 2011. It satirises the shambolic organization of this year's the Olympic games, while The Thick of It satirises the inner workings of the British government. However, despite audiences loving Twenty Twelve and it receiving four nominations in the three categories that it's eligible for, it failed to take home anything. Both Olivia Colman and Jessica Hynes from the show were nominated for Best Actress, but they lost out to The Thick of It's Rebecca Front. It seems an odd snub given that everyone has been celebrating all things Olympic since it was revealed that London got the deal.

Another surprise was Jack Whitehall's voted win of King of Comedy for 2012. He was up against some serious comedy heavy weights that have done the circuit for years: Alan Carr, Lee Mack, David Mitchell, Graham Norton and last year's Queen of Comedy, Sarah Millican. Initial speculation had assumed David Mitchell would get the prize, for his many panel show appearances, Peep Show and That Mitchell and Webb Look. However, Whitehall has really broken through this year, with popular shows Bad Education and Fresh Meat, which are a lot better than they sound.
