Four Emmerdale stars got engaged over Christmas!

It was a busy festive period for Emmerdale actors, with two soap couples getting engaged in real life

Soaps are notoriously dramatic over Christmas (weddings! deaths! fires!), but it’s all going on behind the scenes in the Dales, with two couples from the soap getting engaged IRL.


First up Fiona Wade (AKA Priya Sharma in the soap) and former co-star Simon Cotton announced their happy news on Instagram with this sentimental snap, captioned: “Two days ago this beautiful man asked me to be his wife. There has never been an easier answer to a question…. Yes! ?❤️ Feel so incredibly blessed ? Wishing you all a wonderful 2019 & so much love for the year ahead ❤️??”

If that wasn’t lovely enough news, Mark Jordan, who plays Daz Spencer, and Laura Norton, AKA Kerry Wyatt, also got engaged, with Mark announcing the news on Twitter, writing: “Well 2018 had some of the highest highs and the lowest lows. Really got to feel the love of true friends . Feel blessed by the support of my children and elated to have heard the word “yes “ from the most beautiful woman in the world @lawrencenotrin”


Congratulations to both the happy couples!
