Tom Hardy secretly married his partner Charlotte Riley in a private ceremony several months ago, it's been revealed today.

The British actor, who was previously married to Sarah Ward, had been seeing actress Charlotte Riley since 2009.

The ceremony, which was held in July, was attended by close friends and family and took place in an 18th-century castle in France.

Riley previously mentioned that they were both "desperate to do it", but would not have a huge celebrity wedding, instead making it about them and their friends and family.

So, there you have it. Tom Hardy off the market.

Begin your wailing now.
