Congratulations are in order for Hollyoaks' star Jessica Fox! The actress has announced her engagement to her musician boyfriend Nicholas Willes and we are thrilled for them. Jessica, who plays Nancy Osbourne in the hit Channel 4 soap, shared a series of snaps on her Instagram page looking so loved up with her fiancé. The star wrote: "Be with someone you can be completely yourself with. Someone who makes you want to be better, kinder, eat more fruit and veg. So of course I said ‘yes.’" Aw, this is just the perfect romantic start to the week, don't you agree?

Stunning!
