Blunkett reveals plans to re-marry.

FORMER Home Secretary David Blunkett is to re-marry, his spokesman said.

The Sheffield Brightside MP has announced he will wed GP Margaret Williams.

The couple have been in a relationship for three years and announced their plans to friends at Dr Williams's 50th birthday party last weekend.

Mr Blunkett, 61, was divorced from his first wife Ruth 20 years ago and has four sons.

Divorcee Dr Williams works as a GP in Sheffield and is the mother of three teenage daughters.

Mr Blunkett said: "Yes, we are looking to the future, but have not yet arranged a date.

"We are very pleased to be setting out on a new and happy journey together.

"This is, of course, an entirely private and personal event and we would be grateful if our privacy could be respected."

In 2004, it was revealed Mr Blunkett had fathered a child during an affair with Spectator publisher Kimberly Quinn.
