'EastEnders' proposal thrills Heather, says Cheryl Fergison

By
EastEnders star Cheryl Fergison has revealed that her character Heather Trott "couldn't be happier" when Andrew Cotton proposes to her in an upcoming episode.

Andrew, played by Ricky Grover, starts to behave strangely later this month - but Heather is later thrilled to discover that it's because he has been secretly looking at engagement rings.

Fergison told All About Soap: "He tells Heather he has to go and fix Dot's leaky tap, but she discovers he's lying. Her mind goes into overdrive and she's convinced he must be involved in dodgy dealings. She's been let down so many times before, and her initial reaction is to fly off the handle."

"In the end, he proposes with a plastic washer from Dot's tap," she continued. "Heather's thrilled, though, and couldn't be happier - the ring could have been from a lucky-dip bag and she'd have still said yes. She can't believe her luck."

Fergison added that the couple are likely to have a budget wedding if their big day goes ahead.

"It will all be done on a shoestring, but they'll want it to look like the whole William-and-Kate affair," she said. "As for her dress, I'm sure with Mrs Branning and Mrs Cotton interfering, it could be anything from a lacy number to a meringue.

"Whatever they pick, it won't be very Heather-ish and it'll be completely out of her hands. She won't mind - as long as the family pull together to make it a special day, she'll be happy."

EastEnders fans will see Heather leave the show later this year.
