Michelle, who plays Vanessa Woodfield in Emmerdale, revealed she had proposed to girlfriend Kate on Twitter, sharing a romantic picture. The caption said: “So after months of planning, I popped the question!!! She said yes!!! #loveislove #noordinaryproposal @katebrooks”

Kate was promoted from Assistant Producer to Joint Producer with Laura Shaw, working with new Series Producer Jane Hudson,  when Kate Oates left Emmerdale in April 2018.

Michelle and Kate went public with their relationship in October, with the actress sharing a photo of them on National Coming Out Day and writing: “It will all work out in the end #behappy #nationalcomingoutday #loveislove @thekatebrooks”.

This will be Michelle’s second marriage as she was previously married to Rosie Nicholl, but in February 2017, she revealed the couple had split.

Michelle’s character Vanessa is also tipped to be getting engaged to on-screen partner Charity Dingle (Emma Atkins) as the Producers teased a ‘romantic engaged’ in the spring of 2019. With #Vanity having just moved in together, an engagement would be the next natural step but as with all soap relationships there are bound to be some dramas first.

Congratulations to Michelle and Kate!

  1. For an Emmerdale site the info is wrong

    Kate was assistant producer promoted when Iain Macleod left. Also she went solo series producing for months before Jane and Laura we’re officially appointed in September. They are all credited from December 24th
