EastEnders star Michelle Collins, 60, has married her toy-boy other half Mike Davidson, 38, as her former co-star Adam Woodyatt watched.

The actress, who played Cindy Beale in the BBC soap, tied the knot with Mike, who is 22 years her junior, at Islington Town Hall on Wednesday (August 10).

Among attendees was her soap ex Adam Woodyatt, who played the iconic role of Ian Beale in the soap.

Michelle and her new husband both wore white for their special day, with the blonde beauty opting for a jumpsuit with an elegant train, and a flower crown instead of a veil.

She also had a matching white jacket with pearls running from the cuffs up to the shoulders.

Meanwhile, Mike wore a white jacket over a black V-neck t-shirt and smart black trousers.

The happy couple was pictured exiting the London building as well-wishers showered them in confetti and filmed on their phones.

Michelle and Mike could be seen enjoying a glass of fizz after making things official, before they shared a kiss in front of photographers.

In classic wedding style, they left the venue in a white convertible which had its soft-top roof down.

While Michelle and Mike were dressed the part, her former co-star Adam Woodyatt opted for a more casual approach in a striped shirt and blue trousers.

Lord Michael Cashman, who played Colin Russell on EastEnders more than 35 years ago, was also there – although he is better known nowadays for his political career.

The former Labour MEP was on the BBC soap for three years in the 1980s and his character was known for sharing the first gay kiss in a British soap.

Meanwhile, Michelle and Adam's characters were married on EastEnders, although Cindy died during childbirth while in prison.

She had hired a hitman to kill Ian when he told her he'd take her to court for custody of their children.

Michelle confirmed her engagement to Mike back in April, after she shared an image from a friend's account on her own Instagram story.

The couple has been dating for a decade, and it's reported that they had decided to tie the knot in a spur of the moment decision.

According to The Sun, they told friends: "We know it's late notice, but we've been together for 10 years and what's the point in waiting.

"We thought life is too short and we want to see all of our friends and celebrate."

Michelle later revealed to her Instagram followers that Mike had proposed during a hike in Los Angeles at the Temescal Canyon.

Back in 2018, Michelle said: "Mike is 22 years younger than me and I'm regarded as a predator. It drives me mad. People call him my toy-boy beau. He's nearly 35, for God's sake.

"He turned to me the other day and said, 'Surely I'm not still your toy-boy, am I?'

"I laugh about it now but it is annoying. And I hate that word cougar. I can't stand it. I find it so demeaning. A cougar is a predator going around looking for young flesh. I'm certainly not like that."
