HE'S had more than 130 lovers and admits to being unfaithful to them all. But Michael Winner is to end his reign as one of Britain's best known bachelors by finally marrying, at the age of 75.
The film director and food critic will marry Geraldine Lynton-Edwards, his fiancee and on-off girlfriend of 40 years.
Ms Lynton-Edwards (70), a pilates instructor who nursed Winner back to health after he contracted a flesh-eating bug, has waited patiently for the director to set a date.
They met in 1957 when she auditioned for a role in his film.
They got engaged in 2007 but Winner told her: "Don't hold your breath for marriage."
Yesterday, he announced via Twitter: "Geraldine & I visited registrar at Chelsea town hall to put the bans. Getting married mid Sept (sic)." (© Independent News Service)
