“Congratulations to you both. A beautifully romantic moment I’m sure!”

Michelle, who played Cindy Beale in EastEnders, previously opened up about her relationship with Mike.

She once hit back at critics over their age-gap and said she hates the word “cougar”.

Speaking to the Daily Star in 2018, Michelle said: “Mike is 22 years younger than me and I’m regarded as a predator. It drives me mad. People call him my toyboy beau. He’s nearly 35, for God’s sake.”

Michelle added: “He turned to me the other day and said, ‘Surely I’m not still your toyboy, am I?’

“I laugh about it now but it is annoying. And I hate that word cougar. I can’t stand it. I find it so demeaning. A cougar is a predator going around looking for young flesh. I’m certainly not like that.”
