Danniella Westbrook has revealed she wants to tie the knot with fiance Tom Richards in Liverpool, because it's "England's best kept secret"
Danniella Westbrook wants to get married in Liverpool.
The former 'EastEnders' actress, who is engaged to 24-year-old Tom Richards, wants to tie the knot with her beau in the English city after nixing plans to marry abroad.
She said: "I said I wanted to get married abroad, but now I want to get married in Liverpool. It's England's best kept secret!"
Danniella - who recently experienced a heartbreaking miscarriage - admits she isn't interested in an engagement ring from Tom and would rather he splash out on a nice holiday for her and her kids from previous relationships, Kai, 17, and Jodi, 12, whom she had with ex-husband Kevin Jenkins.
She said: "I didn't want a ring. We talked about it and he asked, 'Would you get married again?' and I said, 'Yeah, but don't do the ring thing.' I'd rather go on holiday.
"We were in Spain and he threw me in a freezing swimming pool and then when we came up from under the water, he said, 'Will you marry me?' "
The 40-year-old star has battled cocaine addiction and bipolar disorder in the past, so she insists her family are less shocked about the 16-year age gap between her and Tom.
Daniella told Britain's OK! magazine: "After the things I've put my mum through, an age difference is the last thing that would shock her! And if it's good enough for [former on-screen mum] Barbara Windsor, it's good enough for me!"
