Christopher, who played Brian Tisley on the ITV soap, got down on one knee during Robyn Delabarre’s 21st birthday celebrations in Mykonos over the weekend.

In video footage of the special occasion, the actor-turned-strip club manager shocks his now-fiancee with the proposal.

After saying yes, Robyn later gushed over her “amazing” partner.

“My husband to be! It’s been a crazy seven months – a secret we had to keep because of our jobs – but you have made me the happiest girl alive.

“You’re amazing to me. I’m so lucky to have you in my life. I’m so glad you’re mine, I love you and I couldn’t care less what anyone has to say. I love you with all my heart.

“Thank you for doing everything you do for me, Chris.”
