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.

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".
