EastEnders Heather Trott star shares rare snap with husband 21 years her junior
Former EastEnders star Cheryl Fergison has taken to social media to share a rare loved-up selfie with her husband Yassine el Jamouni.
The 56-year-old actress, who played Heather Trott in the BBC One soap for five years from 2007 until 2012, marked her 11th wedding anniversary by posting a black and white snap with her Instagram followers.
She penned alongside the photograph: "IT's our wedding anniversary [red heart emoji] 11 years of love."
In the picture, Yassine, 35, can be seen standing in front of Cheryl as she both posed for the camera.
Unsurprisingly, some of Cheryl's 30,000 followers left a message for the former Celebrity Big Brother star in the comment section.
One fan gushed: "Awwwwww Happy Anniversary to you both, such a sweet photo."
Another added: "Happy Wedding anniversary you fantastic pair."
A third person said: "Happy legs eleven anniversary may you have many more healthy and happy years together."
Cheryl mostly keeps her love life with Yassine out of the spotlight.
Speaking recently about proving doubters wrong with their romance, Cheryl said she believes women face more backlash than men when it comes to being the older one in the relationship.
She told the Mirror at the time: "It seems to be quite cool for the men, like Mick Jagger, to date younger and it seems okay for them to have someone else two years later.
"But people don’t give any kudos to a woman dating someone younger, even though we’ve been together 11 years.
"Well we don’t care. It really is absolutely water off a duck’s back to us now. I just feel sorry for them, that they need to criticise our life."
Cheryl immediately hit it off with her second husband and soon jetted out to his hometown of Agadir.
She previously told how she didn't reveal her identity or what she looked like for five months after the pair began chatting.
The soap star told on Loose Women in 2017 she enjoyed an "old-fashioned" courtship with her toyboy.
She said: 'We met online and wrote to one another on the computer and spoke on the computer. It was very old-fashioned.

'"He didn't know what I did for a living. I didn't show him my picture. It was five months of chat before we met each other.
"I saw him and it was like "ping". I knew he was the man I was going to marry and I had been married once before."
Cheryl tied the knot with Yassine in 2011, a year before she left EastEnders.
She has a son called Alex, 22, from her marriage to Afghani Jamshed Saddiqui.
