Speaking about getting married to Gareth, Faye continued: “We’ve been through so much as a couple and we’ve come out of it stronger than ever. We’re a team and our wedding day is about the next chapter of our lives together.”

She said the couple will “definitely going to get married abroad somewhere hot” and they love the idea of it being “very intimate,” therefore they are only going to invite 30 people.

And the 31-year-old actress can’t wait to start a family with Gareth one day.

She added: “That’s really important to both of us, so once we’re married that will definitely be something we start thinking about. We also want to buy a house together.”

Meanwhile, Faye previously insisted she and Gareth will “never take each other for granted again” after they split up briefly.

Quizzed on their previous split, she said on Lorraine: “It was for the right reasons for sure. I feel like we’ll never take each other for granted ever again.

“Work took over and we ended up missing each other so much that we were missing life together.

“We are enjoying engagement but obviously I’ve been dreaming of this [wedding] day since I was a little girl.”
