Elliott Spencer drove at over 100mph in order to get fiancé Stephen Fry to the Hay Book Festival in Hay-on-Wye, a court heard today.

Spencer, 27, was accompanied by Fry, 57, to Cwmbran Magistrates' Court on Wednesday afternoon, where he was given a seven-day driving ban.

He was caught out driving at 101mph in Fry's £130,000 Aston Martin after Fry told him to "get a move on" as they were going to be late for his inaugural address at president of the festival on the Welsh borders.

This comes after he was photographed scraping the side of Fry's £150,000 Bentley the same morning.
