It comes months after Julia and Ben tied the knot in a secret ceremony.

In January, it had been reported that the couple were engaged after Ben apparently got down on one knee and popped the question last year.

The actress and Ben tied the knot surrounded by family, friends and her soap co-stars in Manchester's Albert Hall.

Speaking exclusively to OK! Magazine, Julia said she always wanted to get married on stage, so the Albert Hall was the perfect venue.

She said: "I love being on stage and I always wanted to get married on one!"

Julia revealed they didn't keep with tradition of the bride being walked down the aisle by her father as the couple walked down together hand-in-hand.

Julia said: "It was important for us to walk down the aisle together and my parents aren’t traditional. My dad didn’t mind not giving me away as he believes I’m my own person."
