"I played my part," he wrote, attaching to Sir Patrick's Twitter announcement.

During an appearance on The Jonathan Ross Show earlier this year, Sir Ian had revealed he will officiate the ceremony.

"I am going to marry Patrick. I am going to officiate at his wedding," he said.

When asked if he was legally qualified to perform the couple's nuptials, he responded: "In Massachusetts-we're in the middle of America somewhere-you get anybody along, a friend, and I read out the words, and Sunny and Patrick will then be married. I declare you man and wife."

Sir Patrick was previously married to Sheila Falconer but the couple split in 1990 after 24 years of marriage. They have two children together, Daniel and Sophia. He later married producer Wendy Neuss in 2000 but ended their relationship in 2003.
