HAPPY Mondays star Bez has tied the knot in a Herefordshire ceremony.

The star, real name Mark Berry, who lives in Herefordshire, is understood by the Hereford Times to have been married to Firouzeh Razavi in Kentchurch on Saturday.

The news was broken on Instagram and Twitter by Happy Mondays singer Rowetta, who posted a picture of herself with Bez's mum online, tagging the post as being in Herefordshire. 

"Me & Bez’s gorgeous Mum yesterday at the best wedding ever," Rowetta wrote.

"Love you both so much @bezmondays & @firouzehsings"

Bez won Celebrity Big Brother in 2005 and stood unsuccessfully as a candidate in the 2015 general election – he now appears regularly on Channel 4's Gogglebox.

He has also appeared on Celebrity Masterchef and Dancing on Ice.


In 2016, it was reported that he was involved in a permaculture community in south Herefordshire, and has been spotted around the county, but keeps a relatively low profile.

The aims of permaculture include "living lightly on the planet" and "making sure that we can sustain human activities for generations to come, in harmony with nature".
