Crack open the Cava in the Queen Vic...this EastEnders star is heading down the aisle!

Happy Tuesday people – we have some very excited news! EastEnders actress Natalie Cassidy is engaged.

This comes two years after splitting from her abusive fiancé Adam Cottrell.

Yes, we told you it’s exciting.


The 32-year-old star, who plays Sonia Fowler in the BBC soap, is set to tie the knot with cameraman Marc Humphreys after the pair have been dating for a year. And it could be a proper EastEnders wedding – maybe minus the drama – as Nat and Marc met on the set of the soap after her freelanced there!

‘Family and friends are thrilled for Natalie and have been buying gifts for them to celebrate,’ a source told The Sun.

An EastEnders spokeswoman also confirmed: ‘She is really happy.’


Natalie and her ex, Adam, have five-year-old daughter, Eliza, together but their relationship came to an end in 2013 after a turbulent four years where he admitted attacking her twice. He got 120 hours community service in 2011.

We’re glad to report, since that tough time, Nat seems totally loved up with her new man and we cannot wait to hear all about their wedding plans!

See, we told you it’s a Happy Tuesday!

Gemma Collins for EastEnders? This COULD happen…
