It's a long story so I'll try & be blunt with details.
I've been friends with my best friend for years, he used to like me; then we stopped talking & only became friends again when he told me he was over it. He has since gotten a girlfriend & we've not been as close.
Me & him went for a drink last night & after a few he started telling me he loves me, will go to my wedding but wants to be the groom, wants to be the next guy I sleep with etc. So I told him straight out I'm not interested. But it upset me a lot as I don't see us being friends anymore, as it's unfair on him & to his girlfriend.
Me and the guy I like have been dating for a couple of months but I've never mentioned my best friend before. I'm not seeing the guy I'm dating until new year (I'm home from uni) but I want to tell him about my best friend without threatening him in any way! More just because he's in my life & I want to share my life with him, especially as it's upset me. Should I tell him & how should I tell him? Like how do I bring it up?

Just tell him flat out. Start from the beginning, like you did with us. Make sure he understands that you are informing him because you value honesty and that you have no romantic feelings for the other guy.
Communication is key, and NEVER hide shit. Your boyfriend/girlfriend should also be your bestfriend. You should be able to tell them anything. If you can't, find a new partner.
Don't be surprised when he asks you to cut ties. Any guy would. Not out of mistrust for you, but for what he might see as a threat.1
