Former EastEnders star Hannah Waterman and The Bill’s Huw Higginson have shared the happy news that they have got married, after 12 years together.
Hannah 47, and Bill, 58, updated followers with the happy news as they posted a series of photos from their special day on social media.
The newly wedded couple married in an intimate ceremony in Australia surrounded by friends and family and their 11 year old son Jack.
Both were seen beaming in their wedding photos taken at Sydney harbour, as beautiful bride Hannah wore a blue patterned wedding dress with gold strappy heels and groom Huw sported a sharp, navy blue suit.
“Got married to my love yesterday. We had the best of days," Huw tweeted beside the pictures.
Hannah added on Instagram: “We finally did it! We had the absolute best day ever!”
Son Jack looked ever the handsome young chap as he wore a black suit and bow tie and was seen smiling along with his parents in the photos.
Another snap shared showed Hannah and Huw sitting with son Jack on a boat as they sailed across the river, with the Sydney Harbour Bridge captured in the background.
The couple’s wedding day comes five months after Hannah’s father, actor Dennis Waterman, died aged 74 after a battle with lung cancer.
A statement read at the time his death was announced: "We are deeply saddened to announce that our beloved Dennis passed away very peacefully at his home in Spain.
"The family kindly ask that our privacy is respected at this very difficult time."
Dennis was well-known for his roles in Minder, The Sweeney and New Tricks.
Hannah shared a loving tribute to her late father in May as she posted a photo of herself as a baby being cradled by Dennis.
She wrote beside the picture: “Me and my Dad! Gosh how I loved him. X.”
Hannah and Huw were friends for 10 years before they eventually embarked on a relationship in 2010.
Hannah, who was previously married to her former Eastenders co-star Ricky Groves, shared that she became close again with Huw after she was cast opposite him in two plays.
During her time working with The Bill star, Hannah called Huw her “rock”, as she said: “Huw is lovely in real life. When there's only two of you (on stage), you have to absolutely trust each other…he is a rock.”
