LITTLE BRITAIN comic Matt Lucas insists he is "marrying" his gay partner for love - but also to ensure the loved-up twosome share the same rights as straight couples. The British funnyman is due to wed long-term partner, TV researcher KEVIN MCGEE, in a civil partnership ceremony later this year (06). He says, "We're going to have a civil partnership, or marriage, or whatever you like to call it. "We are very much in love, but also it's important that gay couples have the same rights as straight couples."
