'Coronation Street's Helen Worth is engaged.
The 61-year-old actress - who split from Michael Angelis in 2001 after 21 years of marriage - is set to tie the knot with her teacher boyfriend Trevor Dawson, 54.
The couple have been dating for over a year and went public with their romance last summer, when Helen opened a fair at the Surrey primary school where former church organist Trevor works.
A friend of Helen's told The People: "The one thing missing from her life for many years was a loving partner to share in her success.
"She has found that in Trevor and everybody is overjoyed for the pair of them.
"It's a long-distance love affair that has gone the extra mile and they're so good for each other.
"Helen has always been a very private person, but it's plain to see how delighted she is with the development in her love life.
"These days she appears to be smiling all the time - the fans would hardly recognise her after having to portray all that awful anguish for so many years.
"Her engagement is brilliant news - she's been besieged by genuine friends wishing her every happiness."
Helen's 'Coronation Street' character Gail Platt has been wed married times - once to serial killer Richard Hillman - and widowed three times.
