Billie PiperAfter postponing their wedding from last weekend, Billie Piper is now expected to marry boyfriend Laurence Fox at Christmas instead.

Billie is said to have postponed the nuptials to make sure she wasn’t just rushing into the marriage after just six months with Laurence - and moving the big day until Christmas Eve will allow the event to be a big family affair.

A source close to the couple told the Sun: “Billie and Laurence had discussed getting married this summer but a lot of members of Laurence’s family wouldn’t have been able to come because of work commitments in America.”

The source added that Billie is now exploring potential venues around the Cotswolds for the ceremony and will hire classic cars to chauffeur the wedding party around.

Billie and Lawrence met last year while starring opposite each other the play Treats in the West End.
