Faye Brookes 'set to marry fiancé this month' less than a year into romance

Actress Faye Brookes is reportedly set to tie the knot with her fiancé, Iwan Lewis, later this month after just ten months of dating. The former Coronation Street star, 35, fell head over heels for the theatre boss late last year after they first met while Faye was involved in the stage production of Legally Blonde.

The loved-up couple surprised fans when they announced their engagement just four months later, after Iwan popped the all-important question and asked Faye to be his wife as he wasted no time in putting a ring on the woman who he knew was 'The One' from the moment he laid eyes on her.

Although the couple have yet to even mark their one-year anniversary, Faye and Iwan are set to get married later this month, surrounded by their nearest and dearest after spending the past six months meticulously planning their big day.

"Faye has been really busy over the last few months with Strictly Ballroom but has been secretly planning her big day behind the scenes. She finished her stint on the show last month and it’s all stations go to pull off her dream wedding in just a couple of weeks’ time," an insider revealed of the couple's exciting wedding plans.

The source added to The Sun that the pair have set their sights on a stunning venue in the Cotswolds: "Faye and Iwan have picked a stunning venue in the Cotswolds, not far from where they now live. It’s going to be a super low key affair and very intimate – with just their nearest and dearest in attendance."

Back in January, Dancing On Ice star Faye announced that she was engaged to Iwan after just four months of dating. It proved to be a memorable Christmas and New Year's for Faye after her beau popped the question on New Year's Eve.

Although they have only been dating for four months, Faye and Ivan believe that they have found soulmates in one another - and the theatre boss knew he couldn't wait any longer to ask Faye to be his wife. "Faye and Iwan are engaged and could not be happier about it," a source told at the time.

"They have only been dating for a short amount of time but they are both sure they have found their soulmates in each other. Faye has kept the news low key but she has been wearing her engagement ring in public," they added before revealing that Faye and Ivan even moved in together, with the engagement being the 'cherry on the cake' of their whirlwind romance.

"They recently moved in together and getting engaged was the cherry on the cake. Both Faye and Iwan don’t want to waste time and are hoping to tie the knot as soon as possible," the insider added back the January.

Faye, 35, who was a runner-up on Dancing On Ice in 2021 and played Kate Connor in Corrie for four years until 2019, has been engaged before – to former Pop Idol star Gareth Gates. Although their love story seemed to be perfect, the pair ultimately split, with Gareth demanding the £300,000 ring he bought for Faye be returned to him.

Faye previously admitted her relationship with Gareth was like a 'real fairy tale' – but it had a horror story ending. The couple were both starring in Legally Blonde The Musical when they met and Gareth was still married to his now ex-wife Suzanne Mole at the time. Gareth and Faye announced their split in August 2019. Their shock split came almost seven years after the former couple met in 2012.
