Former Blackadder star TONY ROBINSON is to wed his girlfriend - despite their 35-year age gap.
The 62-year-old actor-turned-TV-presenter proposed to Louise Hobbs, 27, during a three-week holiday in Malaysia last month (Dec08).
A source tells British newspaper the Daily Mail, "Despite the age difference they're very happy together. It's fair to say not everyone thought it would last. Tony proposed on the day after they arrived on holiday on 28 December. Of course they are both over the moon."
Robinson, who has been dating Hobbs since 2005, split from his wife of 18 years, Mary Shepherd, in 1990. They have two children, Laura, 31, and Luke 29.
