Jon Snow warms to married life

LONDON – He once complained about the ­claustrophobia of matrimony, but broadcaster Jon Snow was all smiles as he made a rare public appearance with his wife, Zimbabwe-born epidemiologist Precious Lunga.\r\n

It was the first time the couple have been seen side-by-side since I revealed news of their Caribbean ­wedding earlier this year.

And judging by the cheery ­disposition of the Channel 4 News anchor at the screening of a new ­documentary, ­Mandelson: The Real PM?, clergyman’s son Snow, 63, is ­settling into married life rather well, despite the 27-year age gap.

As I disclosed, the couple married in a beachside ceremony in ritzy Mustique by special licence, staying at an £800-a-night hotel, where past guests have included Mick Jagger and Hugh Grant.

They were joined for their outing to the British Film Institute on London’s South Bank on Sunday by the ­documentary’s director, Hannah ­Rothschild, and the star of the film ­himself, Lord Mandelson.

Friends couldn’t help noticing that Precious seems to have exercised some influence over her husband. There was no sign of one of his frightful vivid ties — but what about the scarf? – Daily Mail
