Beth Ditto has revealed that she is planning to get married to her partner Kristen in Hawaii next summer.

The openly-gay singer, who is currently in London promoting the band's new album 'A Joyful Noise', has been joined by Kristen for the trip.

She told BANG Showbiz: ''I'm getting married next year to my partner Kristen in June. She might be somewhere here, in the hotel, walking around. I'm doing it in Hawaii because my girlfriend is from there.''

The couple knew each other for several years before they became an item because Kristen worked as the 'Standing in the Way of Control' singer's assistant.

Although Beth had developed strong feelings for Kristen she waited until her nine-year relationship with transgender Freddie Fagula ended in January 2010 before getting involved with Kristen.

She previously said about their relationship: ''It was something that I kept hidden deep inside of me. But everyone knew. Even people are parties and clubs would be like, 'When are they (me and Kristen) going to get together?' There was always a little guilt inside of me because I felt I was cheating, but I never cheated.''

''We never did anything ... I dated Freddie for nine years, and I was always worried it was going to end. With Kristen I never worry about it ending, I just feel completely full and whole.''
