Question

The 29-year-old actress said at here Chelsea home today: "We plant to get married between now and Christmas.

"But I have not done this sort of thing before so I don't know how long it will take to organise.

"Tom so busy we're going to try to find a day to fit the wedding in."

Then, talking of their romance, she said: "I suppose it started at the beginning of the year and has been on and off since then but now it is definitely on.

She said 45-year-old Tom, who is divorced with twin grown up sons, didn't "pop the question."

"We just decided to get married because we felt it was something right for us to do.

Tom's decision to quit the series - he stops filming in January but will be seen for the rest of the current series which ends in March - had nothing to do with their plans to marry, Lalla added.
