Sally, 39, shared: “We clicked slowly. We were friends for a while but started sharing puddings and that's when I thought something was on the boil.”
The soap star then joked that she's “glad” they don't share many scenes together, adding: “Johnny is a bit of a joker so he can put you off his stride. I lived with the horse in the back room for a bit. That was all right.”
It comes after Joe shared a picture on Twitter of the pair clinking glasses of champagne in the garden, with a stunning green-emerald ring seen on Sally’s wedding finger back in March.
The actor captioned the image: “She said yes everyone, convid 19 can f**k off…"
Joe, 49, added in another Tweet: "Convid, covid, whuteva." [sic]
His followers flooded the comments section with messages of congratulation as one person said: “Wonderful news! Congratulations to you both, wishing you many happy years together.”
Another said: “Congratulations guys so happy for you (btw beautiful ring).”
