Gillian Taylforth has confessed she's feeling "panicked" about getting married to partner Dave Fairbairn
Gillian Taylforth is "panicked" about getting married.
The former 'EastEnders' star - who has children Jessica, 23, and Harrison, 15, from her 23-year relationship with late ex-fiance Geoff Knights - got engaged to partner Dave Fairbairn in the summer of 2013 but she admits they haven't set a date for their wedding yet and she was "distracted" when she accepted his proposal.
She said: "Dave proposed to me while we were on a weekend break to Barcelona with Harrison in 2013. We were enjoying a jug of sangria outside a cafe and suddenly Dave got down on one knee.
"I was distracted and said yes and then I thought about what I'd just agreed to.
"I'm thinking about wedding plans but I still haven't set a date yet - sometimes I think I should just go for it but then I get a bit panicked.
"I guess my attitude to marriage is sometimes if it ain't broke, don't fix it."
Despite her reluctance to walk down the aisle, Gillian, 59, admits she does want to get married eventually.
She said told Closer magazine: "If I'm honest, I'd hate to go to my grave without getting married.
"Maybe 2015 will be the year I finally say to Dave, 'Let's do it and get married.' I love him - so I don't know what's stopping me."
