Former BEATLE SIR PAUL McCARTNEY has revealed he is set to marry girlfriend HEATHER MILLS, though not quite yet.

Speaking yesterday (May 9) at the Cannes Film Festival, McCartney explained that though the couple were not engaged, it was just a matter of time.

"I can say here and now we are not engaged but there is a good chance I will get married in the future."

He added: "But it is a decision we will make in private. Only then will we make it public. It's quite embarrassing when people come up and say congratulations on your engagement. We are very much in love."

Macca was at the exclusive festival to promote forthcoming Wings compilation 'Wingspan'. He also explained that following The Beatles' split, he turned to booze, fearing his career was at an end, and used Wings as a way out.

"Wings was a form of therapy. I went through a rough time after The Beatles and didn't know if I wanted to carry on. I suppose Wings helped me through a very difficult time."
