Carol confirmed she and her boyfriend got engaged while on holiday and added she is “thrilled”.
The on-screen star has remained tight-lipped on her romance with her fiancé.
Speaking with Prima Magazine in June 2021, Carol revealed the romantic way her boyfriend takes care of her at home, explaining: “He always makes me a cup of tea before I go to work in the morning, which is very romantic – it’s 2.45am and he often leaves me a little love note for when I come home from work.
“That, to me, is worth a million red roses.”
