Lesley, 60, joined Emmerdale as Brenda Walker in 2008 and she began dating 68-year-old Chris after they kept bumping into each other behind-the-scenes.

The couple got engaged last year and were joined at their wedding by co-stars, including Nicola Wheeler, Bhasker Patel and Sam Hall.

The newlyweds' characters once had a brief relationship in Emmerdale, which Lesley found tough!

Previously speaking to Inside Soap, she admitted: "I didn't like it when Brenda and Pollard were an item and we had to do kissing scenes in front of everybody. I'd end up thinking, 'Go away, this is private!'

"So I don't think I'd ever want Brenda and Pollard to get back together again - it's bad enough living with him in real life!"

Aww. Congratulations!
