“But I did it and there was a box on the top of the cake and Ryan asked me to open the box. When I opened it there was a ring inside and I turned around and Ryan was down on one knee and I started crying.”

“The engagement was a complete surprise, but we had spoken about marriage, just to check that we both wanted the same things.”

Shona added that their wedding plans are already full steam ahead, with them planning on tying the knot this year.

“We’re getting married towards the end of the year in the UK,” she added. 

“It’s been a bit stressful as there are so many decisions to make! We’d like an Irish-themed wedding as my family is from southern Ireland. I’ll be inviting my friends from EastEnders too.”

The Whitney Dean actress also discussed the possibility of having children.
