Scottish singer-songwriter Annie Lennox has married for the third time, her spokeswoman said on Tuesday.

The former Eurythmics star, 57, wed American gynaecologist Mitch Besser on Saturday in London.

The ceremony was reportedly on board a boat on the River Thames in a ceremony attended by Oscar-winning actor Colin Firth and comedienne Ruby Wax.

Her spokeswoman said it was “a private ceremony with friends and family present”.

The “Sweet Dreams” singer posted a photograph of her wedding flowers on her Facebook page, winning more than 5,000 “likes” from fans.

Lennox’s first marriage in 1984, to German Hare Krishna devotee Radha Raman, broke down after a year. She has two daughters with her second husband, the Israeli film producer Uri Fruchtmann, whom she divorced in 2000 after 12 years.

Lennox has sold more than 80 million albums worldwide with the Eurythmics and as a solo artist, winning a string of awards including four Grammys and an Oscar for a song that appeared on the “Lord of the Rings” soundtrack.

She performed at the closing ceremony for the London Olympics last month, as well as the star-studded concert outside Buckingham Palace in June marking Queen Elizabeth II’s 60th year on the throne.
