The Mentalist star Owain Yeoman is a married man after exchanging vows with Gigi Yallouz in a low-key ceremony last month (Sep13). The Welsh actor walked down the aisle with his fiancee at a private estate in Malibu, California on 7 September, according to U.S. reports.
Yeoman proposed to jewellery designer Yallouz in May last year (12).
Their wedding comes two years after Yeoman split from his first wife, The Office star Lucy Davis. They divorced in 2011 after five years of marriage.

It seems a bit odd to take on a movie review of Courtney Solomon's Getaway, as only in the loosest terms is Getaway actually a movie. We begin without questions — other than a vague and frustrating "What the hell is going on?" — and end without answers, watching Ethan Hawke drive his car into things (and people) for the hour and a half in between. We learn very little along the way, probed to engage in the mystery of the journey. But we don't, because there's no reason to.
There's not a single reason to wonder about any of the things that happen to Hawke's former racecar driver/reformed criminal — forced to carry out a series of felonious commands by a mysterious stranger who is holding his wife hostage — because there doesn't seem to be a single ounce of thought poured into him beyond what he see. We learn, via exposition delivered by him to gun-toting computer whiz Selena Gomez, that he "did some bad things" before meeting the love of his life and deciding to put that all behind him. Then, we stop learning. We stop thinking. We start crashing into police cars and Christmas trees and power plants.
Why is Selena Gomez along for the ride? Well, the beginnings of her involvement are defensible: Hawke is carrying out his slew of vehicular crimes in a stolen car. It's her car. And she's on a rampage to get it back. But unaware of what she's getting herself into, Gomez confronts an idling Hawke with a gun, is yanked into the automobile, and forced to sit shotgun while the rest of the driver's "assignments" are carried out. But her willingness to stick by Hawke after hearing his story is ludicrous. Their immediate bickering falls closer to catty sexual tension than it does to genuine derision and fear (you know, the sort of feelings you'd have for someone who held you up or forced you into accessorizing a buffet of life-threatening crimes).

The "gradual" reversal of their relationship is treated like something we should root for. But with so little meat packed into either character, the interwoven scenes of Hawke and Gomez warming up to each other and becoming a team in the quest to save the former's wife serve more than anything else as a breather from all the grotesque, impatient, deliberately unappealing scenes of city wreckage.
And as far as consolidating the mystery, the film isn't interested in that either, as evidenced by its final moments. Instead of pressing focus on the answers to whatever questions we may have, the movie's ultimate reveal is so weak, unsubstantial, and entirely disconnected to the story entirely, that it seems almost offensive to whatever semblance of a film might exist here to go out on this note. Offensive to the idea of film and story in general, as a matter of fact. But Getaway isn't concerned with these notions. Not with story, character, logic, or humanity. It just wants to show us a bunch of car crashes and explosions. So you'd think it might have at least made those look a little better.

Welsh rockers Manic Street Preachers brought in guest vocalists to collaborate on their latest album as frontman James Dean Bradfield was convinced his voice wasn't good enough for the new songs. The trio collaborated with artists including Richard Hawley, Cate Le Bon and Lucy Rose on tracks for Rewind the Film as Bradfield was worried about his vocals.
He tells Britain's NME magazine, "I've got a sneaking feeling that I've been singing our songs for so long it's hard to find something new as a vocalist. It's easier as a drummer or a bassist to find a different direction, but if you try to change the sound of your voice, you end up sounding like a d**k.
"And I felt my voice, at this point, was underselling some of the songs. There's no point in having an ego about it. I don't care if someone else is going to sing (the songs). I've had enough props and glory."
Welsh actor Rhys Ifans is to reteam with his Love, Honour & Obey co-star Jonny Lee Miller in hit TV Sherlock Holmes drama Elementary. The Amazing Spider-Man villain will play Mycroft Holmes - Sherlock's brother - when the show returns to U.S. TV later this year (13).
Miller plays the modern version of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's fictional detective, opposite sidekick Lucy Liu, in the series, which debuted last year (12).
Ifans will appear as Mycroft in the season two opener, which will be set in London, and then return as a recurring character.
He's not the only actor currently portraying Mycroft Holmes - Stephen Fry played the sleuth's older brother in Guy Ritchie's 2011 Sherlock Holmes sequel, A Game of Shadows.
Yeoman and Davis, who starred in the U.K. version of The Office, ended their five-year marriage in 2011, and the 34-year-old actor moved on to date Gigi Yallouz.
According to Celebuzz.com, the Welsh actor proposed to Yallouz, 27, in May (12) and they fuelled rumours their big day is imminent this weekend (06-07Oct12) after they were spotted visiting a wedding planner in Pasadena, California.
Yeoman's new love was also snapped wearing a diamond on her ring finger.
Welsh hunk Yeoman wed Davis, best known for her role in the British version of The Office, in 2006 in a lavish ceremony at London's St. Paul's Cathedral.
However, the pair has decided to separate after four years of marriage.
In a joint statement, they say, "We have separated but are on good terms and would kindly ask for our privacy to be respected during this time."
According to Britain's Mail on Sunday, Davis hinted that the couple was trying to make its marriage work, telling reporters, "All I can say is that we are not over."
Davis is the daughter of British comedian Jasper Carrott.
