Nick Lord, co-owner of Aardman Animations, tweeted: “I’m in Lancashire. Fortunately. Because this is where the wonderful Nick Park is about to marry the lovely Mags Connolly. Aaaaah!”

The 57-year-old was born and grew up in Preston, and his family still live in the area.

He has won four Oscars for the adventures of the Wensleydale-obsessed Wallace and his faithful sidekick Gromit.
