'Covid bride' Louisa Lytton celebrates wedding weekend with EastEnders stars

EastEnders star Louisa Lytton jetted off to Italy late last week to get married to fiancé Ben Bhanvra.

The actress, who plays Ruby Allen in the BBC One soap, has been forced to postpone her wedding several times due to the Covid-19 pandemic, but this time, it appears as if all systems are go!

‘Two years in the making,’ she wrote on Instagram, sharing a snap of herself enjoying the sun. ‘Let’s finally go get married @bennnyy__’

‘here’s to ever covid bride finally getting down that aisle #MrsB.

Louisa’s co-stars were quick to comment, with James Bye – who plays on-screen husband Martin Fowler – writing: ‘See you soon @louisanastrilytton’

Kara Tointon, who portrayed Dawn Swann, added three smiling heart-eye emojis.

Louisa and Ben’s wedding was delayed multiple times due to the pandemic.

The couple discussed their reasons for postponing the ceremony early last year during an appearance on Loose Women.


‘Yeah, we’ve cancelled the wedding,’ said Louisa, laughing.

‘Basically I said to Ben, let’s start trying, it doesn’t look like the wedding’s happening, and then we fell pregnant and now officially our wedding could go ahead.

‘But it’s too late now, so… it’s all gone out the window. But it’s fine!’

Louisa left EastEnders several months ago to go on maternity leave. Ruby, at the time, was taken away by the police on drugs-related charges, while Martin realised that she’d been lying to him about everything.

Louisa admitted earlier this year that she didn’t know what the plans were regarding her return to the soap.

Yeah, I’m not sure at the moment, everything is sort of up in the air’, the actress told The Sun.

‘Not sure at the moment, I just don’t know. Now that I’ve had a baby, that’s the priority.’
