Aaron Sidwell has got engaged.
The 30-year-old actor - who previously portrayed psycho Steven Beale in "EastEnders" - has popped the question to his long-term partner and "Benidorm" stage show actress Tricia Adele Turner, and he was delighted she agreed to be his wife.
Aaron took to Instagram to share a photo of himself and Tricia smooching on London's Carnaby Street, and he captioned the image: "Here's to the future Mrs Sidwell #SheSaidYes (sic)"
The location has significance as the love-struck duo first met when working on "Carnaby Street: The Musical."
The actor's former castmates Tilly Keeper (Louise Mitchell), James Bye (Martin Fowler) and Harry Reid - who played Ben Mitchell before Max Bowden took on the role - sent their best wishes to the couple online.
Harry wrote: "My boy (sic)"
James added: "Congrats Ste-bo (sic)"
Tilly wrote on Twitter: "so so happy for the two of you (sic)
Aaron's character Steven was killed off in 2017 when his alter-ego died from smoke inhalation caused by a fire he started, and the actor later revealed he wouldn't be signing up to another soap anytime soon.
He previously said: "I don't want to do a soap again. It wasn't a discipline I enjoyed. I mean, I admire the actors on there who are so instinctive that they can do it, but I was definitely ready to go.
"There was a lot of negativity around, and my storylines did meander for me. I also think the soap actors can sometimes get taken for granted too."
Aaron has also described killing off his character as an "odd decision".
