Emmerdale's Michelle Hardwick gets engaged

Wednesday January 8, 2014

Emmerdale actress Michelle Hardwick has got engaged to her girlfriend Rosie Nicholl.

The soap star, who plays vet Vanessa Woodfield in the show, popped the question on New Year's Eve while on holiday.

'We were in Gran Canaria on holiday and it was about 9:30 at night and I got down on one knee," the 36-year-old told BBC Radio Leeds.

"I'd had the ring for over a year. My mum is the manager of a jewellers so I'd had it sized and everything. I was thinking, "I hope it still fits!" and it did.

"I was thinking, "Her fingers will have swollen up with the heat of Gran Canaria", but it was fine.'

Michelle, who has been with Rosie for two years, is sure that the wedding won't take place this year, but revealed that they wanted 'quite a big do' when they do eventually tie the knot.
