EastEnders (opens in new tab) actress Kellie Bright has married to her long-term partner in front of a guest list that included her soap family.

Kellie plays Linda Carter in the BBC soap and is married to Danny Dyer's character Mick, but she married fellow actor Paul Stocker over the weekend, according to the Daily Mirror.

The wedding took place in the tiny hamlet of Trelill, Cornwall, and guests included her on-screen family - Danny and his partner Joanne Mas, Maddy Hill, who plays Kellie's daughter Nancy, and Sam Strike who plays her son Johnny.

EastEnders executive producer Dominic Treadwell-Collins, who brought in the Carter family to the programme in November, was also among the guests.

Danny and Joanne were spotted enjoying the sights of Cornwall, before popping into a hairdresser's with Maddy and Sam to get ready for the wedding.

Kellie and Paul have been together for a number of years and have a two-year-old son together.
