Shamed ex-Kasabian frontman Tom Meighan has tied the knot with girlfriend Vikki Ager, less than two years after he pleaded guilty to attacking her.

The singer was kicked out of the Leicester-based group after admitting the booze-fuelled assault on his partner last year.

He later claimed he can't remember parts of the brutal attack and was suffering from alcohol addiction at the time.

During the assault, CCTV showed him hitting Ms Ager and then dragging her by the ankles in the back garden of their home.

He also threw her across a room and into a cage, as well as threatening her with a wooden pallet.

But the couple have put aside their incident, with Meighan previously stating how the court appearance was the "lowest point" of her life.

A spokesperson for the couple said that Meighan has "worked hard on himself" and the pair are "very much in love".

A spokesperson for the couple said: “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 Vicki over the past year.

"They are very much in love and looking forward to sharing the rest of their lives together."

The musician sat down with CornwallLive and admitted he 'regretted everything' that happened that night.

He said: He said: “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 at a boiling point in my life – I didn’t know where things were heading. I was drowning myself with drink because of my problems and things going on around me.

“We had a fight and I took the brunt for it. I was fully responsible for what happened but we love each other and we’re getting over it.”

Meighan avoided jail and was handed 200 hours of unpaid work and an 18-month community order, and checked into rehab for his alcohol addiction after the hearing.

He later said he "felt like he'd died on the day" of the case.

After sentencing last July, the band issued a statement saying: “As soon as we found out about the charges against Tom, we as a band made the decision we could no longer work with him.”

He was also booted out of lucrative companies and won't profit from the band, ticket, or merchandise sales.
