Former Kasabian star Tom Meighan marries Vikki Ager a year after conviction for assault

·1-min read

Former Kasabian frontman Tom Meighan has married his partner Vikki Ager, a year after he pleaded guilty to attacking her in a booze-fuelled assault.

Pictures obtained by Daily Mail Online show the happy couple and their wedding party posing for photos after tying the knot at Harborough Registry Office in Leicester on Tuesday.

Meighan was convicted of assaulting Vikki in July 2020 after pleading guilty at Leicester Magistrates' Court. He received 200 hours of unpaid work as well as a 18-month community order, after a judge heard his "girlfriend wanted him back".

A statement given to the Mail read: "We are pleased to share the news that on Tuesday the 13th July 2021, Tom Meighan and Vikki Ager were married at Market Harborough Registry Office, Leicester.

"It was an intimate affair, in accordance with the latest Covid-19 guidelines, with the couple becoming husband and wife surrounded by their children, family and a few close friends.

"Tom has worked so hard on himself, his health, family unit and his relationship with Vikki over the past year. They are very much in love and looking forward to sharing the rest of their lives together."

Opening up on the incident for the first time last December, Tom told Cornwall Live: "We had too much to drink. I regret everything that happened that night - what I can remember of it. I don't condone it - it's horrific. I love my partner to pieces... I was fully responsible for what happened but we love each other and we're getting over it."

Kasabian kicked Meighan out of the band as the truth of the fight came out and he accepted it must have been "heartbreaking" for his former bandmates.
