Hugh Hefner’s ex-girlfriend is getting married at the Playboy Mansion, reports.

The website says the ageing lothario has denied reports he does not approve of Kendra Wilkinson’s relationship with footballer Hank Baskett and is hosting the union and will play a key role on the day.

He said: “Contrary to reports, I’m still planning on walking Kendra down the aisle when she gets married this summer at the Mansion.”

However, although the 82-year-old magazine mogul — who has also split from another of his live-in girlfriends Holly Madison, who is now dating magician Criss Angel — has given his blessing to the new relationships, the men will not appear alongside the former Playmates in the next series of reality show Girls Next Door.

The website adds that at the end of last year, the publisher admitted he was considering disrupting Kendra and Hugh’s wedding, which is to take place in June.

He said: “There may be a moment at the ceremony when I have second thoughts ... I may have to negotiate this.”
