Paul Sinha has revealed he’s married his partner, Olly, with a post on Twitter.
Alluding to the nuptials, that took place yesterday (Saturday December 14), the Chaser said: “24 hours as a married man and I’ve already written fifteen minutes on scented candles and joint bank accounts.”

The tweet was possibly suggesting he’s using his newfound married status as a source of comedy material as the quizzer also operates as a stand-up comedian.
24 hours as a married man.
Fans rushed to congratulate him, with one saying: “Congratulations, I hope you had a fantastic day.”
Another added: “Huge congratulations to you both, happy times ahead.”
The star had said back in October that he and his fiancé didn’t want guests to buy them any gifts.
Instead, he asked for a donation to a Go Fund Me he’s set up in aid of his nephew’s school.

On the page, the quizzer, who announced earlier this year he is battling Parkinson’s, said: “I’m getting married on December 14th. I don’t want gifts. My flat is tiny and I don’t have room.
“My nephew Leo is severely autistic and is receiving superb care at St Nicholas School in Croydon.”
He went on to reveal that the specialist school, which works with “children with learning difficulties, autism, Down syndrome and communication difficulties” had increased in popularity and therefore needed a “major rebuild.”
He added that they are looking to “create a sensory garden” to “stimulate and inspire pupils through touch, smell, sight, taste and hearing, as well as providing a space for calming, learning and enjoyment.”
The star concluded the story by asking: “No sandwich toasters, crockery, or box sets of Mad Men for Olly and me, thanks.
“Please can we raise as much money as humanly possible to improve the lives of children with learning difficulties.”
Paul announced his engagement in January this year, revealing the happy news on Twitter.
Last month he told in a blog post how he’d wept for hours after winning the title of British Quiz Champion as he knows he may not be capable of winning such an accolade again.
