Dom Joly has claimed the UK is not as excited about Prince William and Kate Middleton's wedding as it was about Prince Charles and Lady Diana Spencer's 1981 nuptials.

The Trigger Happy TV comedian admitted that he has "no interest" in the royal ceremony, which will take place this Friday.

"Hopefully [I won't be] in the country," Joly told Digital Spy. "I have no interest in it whatsoever.

"Genuinely, I don't get the excitement. There's people in my village wanting to have a village party and stuff."

He continued: "I don't think anyone really cares. I don't know why. It's not really on the same level of Princess Di."

Meanwhile, republican actress Honour Blackman wished the couple well, adding: "So much of the public loves it and it's supposed to raise the spirits - and God alone knows we need the spirits raised don't we?"

Prince William and Kate Middleton will tie the knot at 11am on Friday at Westminster Abbey.
