Smitten Emmerdale star Lisa Riley shares rare snap with fiancé Al


EMMERDALE star Lisa Riley has shared a rare picture with her fiance Al on a romantic day out.

The 45-year-old, best known for playing Mandy Dingle on the ITV soap, grinned as she cosied up for a selfie as they walked around the Lambley Viaduct in Northumberland.

The actress is famously very private

The actress told her followers: “Beautiful Day….. walking for miles and miles…getting totally lost in nature. Lambley Viaduct is just PURE PURE BLISS!!”

Lisa has been with Al for more than seven years but has kept her relationship very private.

They got engaged in 2018, but even then she didn’t share a picture with her man.

Instead she told her followers: “Yes I can now confirm the rumours are true….I have got engaged…my soul mate and best mate and love of my life Al is the best thing to have ever happened to me….we have absolutely NO date set for ANY wedding day, just happy together…zero fuss, just firmed our togetherness.”

She previously suggested they would tie the knot last year, telling the Mirror in 2020: ‘I wouldn’t rule out us getting married next year at all.’

Revealing what the day would be like, she added: ‘It will be incredibly simple – I love the idea of keeping it intimate, with just our nearest and dearest there and nothing flamboyant.”

The notoriously private star did however recently admit that sex was better since her 12 stone weight loss.

Lisa underwent a dramatic body transformation in 2016, unveiling her trimmed down figure.

When asked whether her sex life has improved on the Events That Made Me podcast, she said: “Absolutely! Tell me about it, believe me, that’s a very good point.”
