Lucas Still Grieving Ex-husband
LITTLE BRITAIN star MATT LUCAS is still struggling to come to terms with the sudden death of his ex-husband - insisting he can't bear to start dating again following the tragedy.
The Alice in Wonderland actor was devastated when his former partner Kevin MCGee was found hanged at his Edinburgh, Scotland apartment in October (09). The couple tied the knot in a civil partnership in 2006 before parting ways in 2008.
Lucas pulled out of his role in West End play Prick Up Your Ears after the sad news, and cancelled all of his public engagements.
And the comic admits he is still finding it difficult to move on following MCGee's death.
He says, "I am 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 haven't spoken about Kevin MCGee for a long time, but I will say that for a long time it was amazing. I would lie in bed with him, and say, 'Can you turn out my bedside light?' And he would roll over me, squashing me, and turn it out, and roll back. And I would do the same to him.
"If I was ever going to end up with anyone they'd have to be stupid. I pull my pants up to my nipples."
