Newly-engaged Jessie Wallace leads fashion pack at the British Soap Awards

Jessie Wallace looked ecstatically happy on Saturday night as she spoke openly for the first time about her fiancé Vincent Morse at the British Soap Awards.

The couple are due to marry in August and the 39-year-old star said: "He's the love of my life. I've never been this happy with a man before."

The Eastenders actress - who perhaps chose a white dress in anticipation of her nuptials - had other reasons to smile too.

She took home the Best Actress gong as well as the award for Best On-screen Partnership for her double-act with Shane Richie.
