There are very few TV shows that can lay claim to being a true staple of British television, but the Walford-set EastEnders is certainly one of them.
First airing in 1985 and instantly becoming one of the BBC’s heavy hitters; the show has had bonkers storylines, explosive action, shocking twists, and plenty of romance.
With that in mind, then, let’s take at look at the real romantic lives of some of your Albert Square favourites.
10. Heather Trott
Where modern EastEnders favourites are concerned, few have connected with viewers as well as Heather Trott. After all, who doesn’t appreciate a character who loves cheese so much?
Often positioned as a comedy character utilised for laughs, Heather’s most notable storyline saw a whodunit angle play out as she surprised Albert Square by revealing that she was pregnant. Once that storyline concluded, it was young Darren Miller who had done the horizontal hustle with Heather. Of course, she would also date Minty for a spell.
Tragically, Heather would be accidentally killed off by Ben Mitchell in 2012 after a bizarre collision with a photo frame.
For actress Cheryl Fergison, she’s been married to her second husband Yassine al-Jermoni since 2011. Cheryl has one son from her previous marriage.
