Freuds man irked by celeb coverage

Memorably named one of the 40 most eligible bachelors in Britain by the Daily Mail (which last year described him as proud owner of a Chelsea townhouse 'renowned' for its 'gigantic four-poster bed'), Freud Communications director Oliver Wheeler is finally giving up the single life to wed Holby City star Tina Hobley.

Diary wonders if the couple will be taking on their own personal cuttings service, as they seem to have become a semi-permanent fixture of the tabloid gossip columns and celeb mags since meeting last summer.

But far from courting publicity, Wheeler tells us he's rather peeved at the attention on his private life.

Asked how the tabloids knew of his impending nuptials, he tells us: 'We didn't tell anybody - The Sun and Daily Mirror came to me. Publicity has never been an advantage for me. This is a private matter and we are keeping it to ourselves.'

For the record, the Freuds man confirms we will not see the wedding in Hello! or OK!, and Jordan-style pink swans and white suits are also out of the question. And a personal cuttings service? That'll be a firm no, then.
