Hollyoaks star Kevin Sacre has revealed he and Camilla Dallerup are getting married on a beach.

The actor who has recently returned to the soap as Jake Dean popped the question to the former Strictly Come Dancing star on a beach, and so they plan to tie the knot by the sea, too.

Kevin told New! magazine: “I don’t want to give too much away, but I can tell you it’s going to be on a beach – I proposed on La Fontelina beach in Capri, so it’s nice that we’re getting hitched on a beach, too.

“We didn’t want to do it in England because we attend lots of events and the sit-down meal would have felt like work. We are going to have speeches, but they won’t be the traditional type.

“It will be very ‘us’. We want to keep it small, but the guestlist keeps growing.”

The 31-year-old actor is keen to start a family with the 35-year-old dancer.

He said: “Hopefully we’ll have children. I’m very family orientated.”

Kevin revealed he is enjoying playing Jake in Hollyoaks again, especially now his character has sorted out some of his problems.

“I always said I wanted to finish Jake’s story,” he said.

“He’s back to show what it’s like when someone who’s had a mental illness returns to the community and how society reacts. Jake is a reformed character and it’s nice that I smile sometimes now! Before, I had to make sure I didn’t take my work home. I had to snap back into Kevin or I would have gone insane in real life!”
