Stephen Gately's Love Contract

Stephen Gately's husband signed a contract promising to love the late pop star forever.

Andrew Cowles is still coming to terms with the loss of the Boyzone singer - who died of natural causes in October last year whilst holidaying with his spouse in Majorca - because they were "meant to be" together until they were old men.

He said: "We were meant to grow old together. He made me promise, he made me email him a contract five years ago that I would love him when he was old and I was actually looking forward to sitting in the bay water's edge, holding hands and drinking coffee like two podgy old men, so I do feel cheated that I'm not going to get that opportunity."

Stephen and Andrew united at a commitment ceremony in Las Vegas in 2003 and wed at a star-studded civil partnership ceremony in London in March 2006.

Although Andrew misses the pop star terribly, he doesn't have any regrets about their romance because Stephen "touched his life dramatically".

He added in an interview with Britain's OK! magazine: "Stephen was an angel who was sent here for a while. He was a very special boy, he overcame his demons and when he'd found his peace, he moved on. He touched my life dramatically and I'm pleased to have had him in my life, even though it has caused me so much pain. I miss him dreadfully but I'd never miss out on any of it."
