Matt Lucas has dissolved his civil partnership with Kevin McGee at a family court in London.

The Little Britain star and McGee sealed their partnership in December 2006 but announced their separation in June this year, just 18 months later.

And in an uncontested case, Lucas, 34, was granted a dissolution on the grounds of unreasonable behaviour by McGee, a TV researcher.

The Little Britain actor and Kevin McGee were married at Home House, a London private members' club, in 2006, with many celebrities in attendance.

Guests such as comedian Paul O'Grady and Eastenders actors Barbara Windsor and Steve McFadden attended Lucas and McGee's pantomime-themed civil partnership ceremony.

The couple held their reception at Banqueting House in Whitehall before a party at the Soho Revue Bar.

However, they announced they had split "amicably" earlier this year, after four-and-a-half years together.

The court was not told of the nature of McGee's behaviour but heard it was continuing.
