STEPHEN Fry’s fiancé has been banned from driving after being caught speeding at 101mph in a 70mph zone.

Elliott Spencer, 27, originally from Locks Heath, appeared at Cwmbran Magistrates’ Court in South Wales on Wednesday.

The court heard that Spencer was driving an Aston Martin when the QI presenter told his boyfriend to ‘get a move on’ so he would not be late for a literary festival in May after they were caught in traffic.

Spencer pleaded guilty to speeding. He was banned from driving for seven days and fined a total of £205.
