GRIEF-STRICKEN Matt Lucas was being comforted today by David Walliams over the suicide of his ex-partner. Kevin McGee, 32, was found hanged yesterday, 10 months after the couple split up. Lucas, 35, was said to be utterly destroyed. Walliams was one of several friends with the comedy star at his Marylebone home. Lucas was too devastated to com- ment today and did not attend an awards ceremony where he and Little Britain co-star Walliams were due to appear. Lucas also pulled out of last nights performance of the West End play in which he is starring, Prick Up Your Ears, a story which climaxes as his character bludgeons his lover to death and prepares to take his own life. He will not be appearing until Tuesday, 6 OcTOber 2009 *Terms & conditions apply.
