Steve Bennett has drafted in some celebrity status for his wedding next month.

The e-entrepreneur will have top pop star Paul Da Vinci - he of 80's Tight Fit fame - as best man when he finally ties the knot with his beloved.

Bennett first came across Da Vinci when he was looking to re-release The Lion Sleeps Tonight for the launch of etailer jungle.com last summer. (Da Vinci sang the number but it wasn't him who appeared on Top of the Pops in a loincloth.)

The millionaire tried to track Da Vinci down, and finally found him working at Butlins in Devon. After just three days Bennett had persuaded the star to jack in the holiday camp lifestyle and move to the Midlands to help him promote Jungle.

The two have been firm friends ever since, and Da Vinci introduced Steve to his future wife Sarah. The rest is history. ®
