Comic Sarah Millican revealed she tied the knot with husband Gary Delaney to the tune of Paul McCartney’s Frog Chorus - and she is so fond of the novelty tune she chose it as one of her Desert Island Discs.
McCartney had a number three hit with the song, with features animal noises alongside the vocals and is also known as We All Stand Together, in 1984.
The north-east born entertainer told the host of the BBC Radio 4 show, Kirsty Young, she got the idea from listening to the actress Kathy Burke when she appeared on it.
She said:”There was a Frank Sinatra song and it was in the order of service of a wedding she was at and it said everybody just sing with gusto and I remember listening to that and had no plans to get married.
“I’m not religious so I wouldn’t really necessarily want to sing a hymn, though how lovely to just go ‘We love this song, we want all of our friends and family to sing it how awesome’ and when I married my husband Gary, when we were planning our wedding and thinking what could we pick that everybody would sing he started playing this so I started to laugh and he said ‘listen to the lyrics’ and I started to cry so we played this at our wedding and the whole congregation sang including all the noises.
“We made sure all the noises were in the order of service as well and this is what we walked out of the wedding to”.
McCartney, whose back catalogue includes Eleanor Rigby, Hey Jude and Penny Lane, wrote the song for a cartoon version of Rupert the Bear.
Her other songs choices included the themes to hit films Superman and Thelma And Louise.
Millican also said that if she is ever nominated for another Bafta she would wear the same dress she wore in 2013 which saw her attacked on social media and described in the press as “frumpy”.
She said:”To be pulled apart for something that is so unimportant seems really odd. Say for example I saw somebody and thought ‘Oh that’s brave’, I don’t go up to her and tell here which is exactly what Twitter and Facebook are. It’s just tapping somebody on the shoulder and saying you look rubbish, you shouldn’t be wearing that, you’re too fat for that, you’re too ugly for that.
“If I’m nominated again I will wear exactly the same dress again because the public generally, fans and nice people, realise how unimportant it is. Am I funny? Yes. Do you care what I have on? No. As long as I’m covered, as long as nothing’s hanging out unless I want it to hang out. I think that’s enough”.
