Ali Bastian has recently announced her engagement on Twitter. Her partner, musician Tom Clay proposed while the couple were on holiday in Greece earlier in the year. She posted a picture of her wearing her engagement ring with the caption 'I said yes!'. She soon received a number of posts from her followers congratulating her on her news.
She has previously been involved in relationships with her Hollyoaks co-star Kevin Dacre and more recently her professional dance partner on Strictly Come Dancing, Brian Fortuna. They split in October 2010 on amicable terms. Brian has since gone on to marry dancer Camilla Dallerup who he met on Strictly.
The actress is best known for her roles as Becca Dean in Hollyoaks and Sally Armstrong in The Bill. After finishing as a semi-finalist on Strictly Come Dancing she went on to star in the West End dance show Burn The Floor alongside Brian Fortuna. More stage work followed in the role of Roxie Hart in Chicago at Liverpool's Empire Theatre.
Although Ali has not been in the public eye recently as much as in previous years, the amount of congratulatory tweets she received when news of her engagement broke shows that she is still a very popular celebrity. Fans will be hoping for more announcements soon with news of her upcoming wedding.
