Congratulations are in order for EastEnders' Aaron Sidwell and his second wife Tricia Adele-Turner.
The former Steven Beale actor and fiancée-at-the-time Tricia went their separate ways during the Covid-19 lockdown, but in a new social media post, the 35 year old surprised everyone by referring to her as his "wife".
Next to a loved-up snap of them together was this message: "My brilliant wife! Seen the show once, not listened to the score until yesterday afternoon. 4 hours rehearsal and smashes it out the park. Superstar @TriciaAT @WatermillTh."
The pair are currently working on stage together in the Watermill Theatre production of Lord of the Rings; he's the heroic warrior Aragorn while she's his Elven soulmate Arwen.
Tricia replaced Aoife O'Dea in the role last weekend, announcing on her X page: "A crazy weekend stepping in last minute to play Arwen opposite my @aaronsidwell at the @WatermillTh, huge congratulations to @sionedsaunders and the company for going above and beyond to cover illness and sending the beautiful @Aoife_O_Dea a speedy recovery!"
After the pair got engaged in 2019, The Sun reported that Aaron and Tricia had split up just a year later.
A source commented: "Aaron and Tricia are over but still on good terms as they have to work together in the future. It's really sad but they're determined to remain best friends."
The soap star was in a previous marriage with Grace Isted for eight years, whom he shares two daughters with in Isla and Matilda.
This happy news comes after Aaron recounted a frightening experience out on the street after leaving his local gymnasium.
Speaking on his Instagram Story a couple of years ago, the actor told thousands of fans while shaking his head: "I was just walking back from the gym, same way I go every single day, and some little kid just like pulled a bread knife out on me. Like, what are you doing? You live in Kent, the garden of England, you little t**t. Why are you walking around with a bread knife?
"Just anyone, I've got some friends on here who follow me who live in the area, so just be aware of kids with bread knives. They're on half term and they're a little bit bored and they just feel like running around scaring people."
Aaron also discussed the incident with his Twitter fanbase, labelling the knife carrier a "stupid wannabe gangster".
As for his decision to hang up his Walford alter-ego's boots for good six years ago, here's what Aaron had to say back in 2017: "To the fans of EastEnders. Thank you for your on going support these past 18 months. I wanted to take this chance to clear up any confusion over my exit. There has been incorrect reports about me for some time now.
"Regardless of what you’ve read or believe I didn’t sign a year long contract back in March. I signed for six months. A decision both I and my representation were happy about as it gave us the chance to continue working on other opportunities.
"I love EastEnders and everyone connected to the show with all my heart. Thank you all for your dedication to the show. I hope you all enjoy what is to come in what I hope will be an emotional exit. I was fortunate enough to work with some extraordinary talented people on it."
