Coronation Street star Alexandra Mardell recently got engaged and gave fans a glimpse into the celebrations.
The 27-year-old – who played Emma Brooker in the ITV soap – went on a trip to London with her fiancé Joe Parker and enjoyed endless glasses of bubbly.
She tucked into a meal of lobster after soaking in a hot tub with her soon-to-be hubby.
The actress shared the happy news of her engagement with fans at the beginning of April, uploading a picture of her and her ring on Instagram.
"Love locked down!! 1000000 times yes!" she captioned the snap of her and Joe. "You make me so happy, my face hurts! Love you ridiculously. Future Mrs Parker."
And now, the happy couple are celebrating their engagement in the best way possible – with bubbly, family and fancy seafood.
The duo headed to restaurant chain Burger & Lobster to enjoy the lavish meal and she even put on a bib to easily tuck in.
She told her followers: "Burger & Lobster & Me! Name a happier combo!"

She announced her engagement in April
They took the next step in their relationship in January 2020 when they made the decision to move in together – not knowing that the world was set to plummet into a pandemic just two months later.
Although their living situation started off in unusual circumstances as the pair were holed up together for months on end, it’s obvious that the time spent together has brought them closer, and has done wonders for their romance.
Alexandra recently celebrated her fourth anniversary on Corrie, after joining the legendary cast in 2018.
