She admitted she "has faith in that instant recognition and love for one person by another that is so strong it feels as if you have known them or had a connection before - like in a past life."

She added: "It's the same as finding The One, that person you're meant to be with but that not everyone is lucky enough to meet."

Carol and Mark delayed their wedding date while Carol battled cancer, but she insisted last year the wedding was very much still on.

In an interview with Woman magazine back in 2015, she said of Mark: "It feels like we're already married. We don't need to get married - it's that we want to."

Mark added: "It's just about being in love."

And Carol told Bella mag the same year that she couldn't imagine life without Mark.
