Former Eastenders Star Kara Tointon Reveals Wonderful News

Ex-Eastender Kara ­Tointon is about to do just what the doctor ordered – by marrying him.

The TV favourite, who has been dating Dr Marius Jensen for more than a year, was this week wearing a huge ruby and diamond sparkler on her wedding finger.

But while former dance champ Kara couldn’t stop smiling, she was determined to keep details of the proposal Strictly private.

“I’m not saying anything – I cringe when I read about my love life,” she said.

Kara, 34, who played Dawn Swann in EastEnders, once dated Albert Square co-stars Joe Swash and James Alexandrou.

After winning Strictly in 2010, she had a three-year relationship with dance partner Artem Chigvintsev and spoke about her heartbreak when they split.

Her faith in love was restored when she met chiropractor Marius Jensen, creator of fitness regime the Jensen Method.

They were first spotted together last ­summer, watching tennis at Wimbledon.

Kara has also starred in ITV drama Mr Selfridge as the store magnate’s wife Rosalie.

But recently she’s been keeping a lower profile, moving away from TV to theatre.
