She said: "We did practice. The night before I was a bit nervous about it. It was a bit weird.

"I took the stage directions literally just for safety. So you go, right we're up against a wall, I can do that, I know what I'm doing with it.

"So he said, "Right, practice on me." And I couldn't stop laughing. So we didn't get to do it once without laughing."

Laura and former "Heartbeat" star Mark have been together for three years, and the former "A Wake in Providence" star recently admitted they are having a "lush" time as a couple.

Speaking in June, she said: "We've just had our anniversary. It's just lush. It sounds a bit corny, but it is.

"It's out there now."
