"We make each other laugh constantly. Even when we’re arguing or we’re both tired or stressed, we find each other funny. I think that’s the key to us. We talk about everything, to the tiniest detail of each other’s work, because we just really trust each other’s opinion."

While radio host Rick, 43, said of his significant other: "Anything I do is enhanced by Emer being there. She is the first person that I want to tell everything to, and the person whose opinion I care about the most.

"I want to hang out with her when I’m happy and when I feel sad, because either way we just laugh a lot. It’s such a comforting thing to know we’ll always have that."

Emer played Zsa Zsa Carter, the daughter of Tina Carter, in EastEnders for nine months in 2010.

Her other credits include BBC One's Coming Down the Mountain, 2009 television film Freefall and Lesbian Vampire Killers.

She also starred in BBC Three's Pramface for three seasons and most recently wrote the screenplay for ITV drama Karen Pirie.
