Cheryl Fergison ties the knot with her young love

Tuesday May 24, 2011

Cheryl Fergison has married her Moroccan boyfriend.

The EastEnders actress, who plays unlucky-in-love Heather Trott, met 25-year-old Yassine Al-Jermoni via an internet chat room.

The couple tied the knot in a ceremony near his home in Agadir. The 46-year-old star has been spending as much time in the country as possible, along with her son Alex, 12, from a previous relationship.

It's believed that Yassine is awaiting a visa that will allow him to move to the UK.

The couple's neighbour in Agadir has reported: "Cheryl seems to have settled in well during her trips here.

"She goes out in the mornings to put the rubbish out and buy croissants from a local bakers. Yassine's a late riser and you don't see much of him until mid-afternoon."

Cheryl was previously married to Jamshed Saddiqi, but their relationship broke down three years ago.
