'Eastenders' actress Jessie Wallace gets engaged

‘Eastenders’ actress Jessie Wallace, who plays the infamous ‘Kat Moon’ in the BBC soap, has announced her engagement to Vincent Morse.

Wallace, 39, was introduced to her catering boss fiancé by fellow co-star Charlie Brooks six months ago, Metro.co.uk reports.

The mother-of-one – a six-year-old from a previous relationship – has confessed that Morse is her “Mr Right.”

Wallace told OK! Magazine: “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 thing, loads of things missing. But Vince has got everything I’ve been looking for.

“I knew literally straight away I wanted to spend the rest of my life with him. I do believe there’s one person out there for you and the more time we spend together the closer we become, it’s like we’re one person.”

Although no date has been confirmed, that won’t stop speculation amongst cast and crew about the location of the wedding venue. London would seem the obvious choice for Wallace, considering her ties to Albert Square in the East-end soap.

Wallace, who now says that she has “never been this happy with a man before”, revealed that the pair’s first date was not all plain sailing.

After being set up on a blind date by Brooks, she said: “I remember telling Charlie the date was a disaster! I think it was because I’d never been out on a blind date before. We were sitting opposite each other eating and I was nervous and the whole evening was just really awkward.”
