CORONATION Street’s Faye Brooks revealed her Gareth Gates tattoo tribute as she discussed their “huge” wedding plans.
The soap star confirmed their engagement on New Year’s Day and it seems preparations are already well underway for their big day.
The pair told OK! magazine they’re planning an “intimate” celebration of 30 people in the sun next year.
And Faye has already kicked off their life-long commitment by having Gareth’s initials tattooed on her ribs.
She dished: “The wedding is going to be the biggest day of our lives so I’m going to go big with my dress and every other detail of the day.
“I’ll only get married once and I want it to be huge.”
Former Pop Idol star Gareth popped the question during a trip to New York in January – singing a self-penned 17 minute song before pulling out a stunning 4-carat diamond ring.
Their engagement came as a surprise to some given that the couple briefly split in September.
However the pair – who met in the cast of the Legally Blonde stage production six years ago – insist their break-up made them “stronger than ever”.
Speaking about her new “G” inking, Faye added: “I’ve always wanted to have his initial somewhere on my body, it represents that we’re together forever!
“I decided to get it on my ribs as it’s the closest place to my heart. Gareth was with me when I got it done, he held my hand as it was extremely painful!”
