Famous for playing bolshie barmaid Kat Moon in BBC One’s long-running soap Eastenders, Jessie Wallace has announced her engagement to Vincent Morse.

Jessie was set up with the catering company manager by co-star Charlie Brooks (Janine Malloy) six months ago, but admits their first date was a “distaster”.

A newbie to blind dating, Jessie reported back to Charlie that the whole evening had been “really awkward”. However speaking to OK! Magazine Jessie admits that shortly after she realised she wanted to spend the rest of her life with Vince.

“Vince is my Mr. Right, there’s been a huge gap in my life and I’ve had relationships but there was always something missing. If not one things, loads of things missing. But Vince has got everything I’ve been looking for. I never thought I’d see the day when I got married. I’ve never been this happy with a man before.”

Isn’t it funny how love works sometimes? What was the first date with your partner like?
