British actor Leslie Phillips has married for the third time at the age of 89.

The former Carry On funnyman tied the knot with his fiancee, social worker Zara Carr, at a registry office in Mayfair, London on Friday (20Dec13), in front of just two witnesses.

The bride and groom, who appeared to have a growth on his nose, then celebrated the union with 40 friends and family for a blessing at a church near the star's home.

The ceremony took place less than a week after becoming engaged - Phillips proposed to Carr, 50, following the death of his friend Peter O'Toole last Saturday (14Dec13).

He said, "I realised I don't have much time and want to make the most of it. Zara is a wonderful woman, who not only looks good but has an amazing brain. I love her very much."

Phillips was previously married to Bond girl Angela Scoular, who committed suicide, aged 65, in April, 2011. He originally met Carr over 10 years ago, but they bonded as she helped him overcome Scoular's death.

The star split from his first wife, Penny Bartley, in 1965.
