EastEnders star Patsy Kensit has announced that she's engaged to her boyfriend Patric Cassidy.

The actress, who is currently guest starring as Emma Harding in the soap, made the announcement via her Instagram account.

Sharing a video of the beachfront proposal at sunset as well as a still photograph of the happy moment, Patsy captioned the photo: "I said Yes".

In the snap Patsy can be seen standing as her fiancé gets down on one knee, they are surrounded by a love heart made from red seaweed.

Following the proposal, Patsy shared an Instagram reel to her social media showing off the enormous diamond ring her partner had gifted her.

As The Flamingos' 'I Only Have Eyes for You' plays over the video, Patsy flashes her new ring at the camera and walks back into the love heart before fake falling over in a seemingly overwhelmed state at the moment, the camera then pans around to reveal a romantic picnic in a beach hut.

In one notable moment from the short reel, Patsy appears to joke about the size and weight of her ring as she holds her arm up to support the enormous diamond.

Patsy's son Lennon Gallagher, who she shares with her ex husband Oasis' Liam Gallagher, shared his happiness for his mum on the post commenting: "Love you mum".

The EastEnders star recently completed filming for her role as Lola Pearce-Brown's estranged mum Emma on the soap.

Taking to Instagram to mark the occasion, Patsy wrote: "Cannot thank my amazing cast members at the simply awesome experience I've had working on @eastenders for being so kind and loving to me."

EastEnders airs on Mondays - Thursdays at 7.30pm on BBC One. The show also streams on BBC iPlayer.
