Kaiser Chiefs' Ricky Wilson will marry fiancée Grace in post-lockdown September wedding – but can only have 30 guests

KAISER Chiefs frontman Ricky Wilson isn’t letting anything get in the way of his wedding this autumn – even if half of his mates can’t come.

He has revealed he had already booked to tie the knot with fiancée Grace Zito in September and is determined it will go ahead, even though lockdown means they may be limited to 30 guests.

In an exclusive chat, Ricky said: “We’re doing it in Bath at The Pig, because we love the hotel. My friend Robin owns it and he said we could use it.

“We’re still booked in for three days and at the moment we’re allowed 30 people.

“Let’s hope there’s not a second wave from people at the beach because I want to get married, folks.”

Ricky met stylist Grace when they both worked on TV ­talent contest The Voice, and he proposed to her in ­Cornwall two years ago.

Now the I Predict A Riot singer says their enforced time together has proved to him that he made the right decision.

He added: “Being in lockdown with someone is a bit like what it will be like when you’re retired.

"And now I know we’re safe, we can cope with each other, and it’s actually really good.

“You realise that what you need and what you want is very different.

"And I only really need Grace and the dog.”

The lockdown has led the band to re­schedule gigs throughout the summer but they will be playing on Thursday as part of the Barclaycard-backed Share The Stage virtual festival, which you can watch on YouTube and at barclaycard.co.uk.

Ricky said: “It’s becoming clear that people are getting more and more desperate to be with people.

“I think the live experience, the gig, is the ultimate form of that.

“But saying that, you get it where you can, and this is a really good way to do so.

“It was pulling us out of our comfort zone as well because we didn’t have a rehearsal together.

"We learned a cover of a song by Gracey called Don’t Need Love ­without seeing each other.”

Despite all their musical success, Ricky’s career ­highlight is making No 14 on Attitude mag’s Hot 100 list in 2014 — but now he is determined to beat it.

He said: “I was No 14 without even taking my top off.

“I want to crack the Top Ten, though it will be a lot of work.”
