Carrie shared a black and white photo with fiancé Joel on Instagram last week, captioning the image: ‘What a day. First Joel took me for an incredible meal @coppaclub where the food and cocktails were unreal…

‘Then seeing as we were so close to the Tower of London, we bought tickets and went for a little wander through history.

‘Then we got the boat to Westminster and walked back to Victoria Palace for Joel’s first show back at Hamilton.

‘We took a lot of photos throughout the day, but this is my favourite… Just love and peace and happiness. It’s all I’ve ever wanted.

‘All anyone wants really but sadly so few find. I count myself one of the lucky ones.’

Carrie split from her ex-partner, actor Oliver Ormson, earlier this year.

Oliver, who’s currently playing Hans in Frozen the Musical, shared a photo of the former couple in October 2020 alongside the caption: ‘Happy Anniversary! I love you.’

The pair also holidayed together in Disney World, Florida, in 2019, with Carrie referring to being back at the entertainment park for the second time this week.

Theatre star Carrie has played Éponine in Les Misérables and appeared in the title role of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Cinderella before the production closed.

The famous composer’s revamped version of the fairy tale ended in June, with Andrew admitting opening his new musical during the pandemic, when theatres were shut, was a ‘costly mistake.’
