Drama Days of Our Lives will make TV history this week by becoming the first daytime soap to feature a wedding between two gay men.

The character of Will Horton, played by Guy Wilson, will marry on screen partner Sonny Kiriakis, portrayed by Freddie Smith, in a storyline which will take place over the course of three consecutive episodes later this week.

It is not the first same-sex wedding to be part of a U.S. soap - lesbians Bianca Montgomery and Reese Williams, played by Eden Riegel and Tamara Braun respectively, exchanged vows on All My Children in 2009.
