Lisa Riley is best known for playing the role of Mandy Dingle in the television soap opera Emmerdale, and for succeeding Jeremy Beadle as presenter of You've Been Framed.

The 41-year-old British actress has made a startling revelation that has her fans in a tizzy. For the past 4 years, Riley has been dating a mystery man who she has always kept out of the public eye, reported the Daily Mail.

On the 21st of May, 2018 fans were thrilled to receive a Twitter post from Riley revealing her engagement to Al.

Reily said that her boyfriend Al is 'her soulmate and love of her life.' The once overweight star lost an incredible 12 stone (76 kilograms) in the last three years, and credits her new lease on life to AL.


'Yes I can now confirm the rumours are true...I have got engaged... my soul mate and best mate and love of my life."

She went on to confide that Al is the best thing that has ever happened to her. The star declared that she and her fiance have not set a date for the wedding, and are happy to have made the vow to be together.

Riley met Al whom she describes as a 'very talented and very, very lovely' musician through mutual friends four years ago, and has been living a wonderful romance since then.

Riley recently shared that she and AL have been having IVF treatments in the hope of starting a family.


After her dramatic weight loss, Riley had to have excess skin removed and her primary concern was that it would not interfere with her plans to become a mother.


Reiley explained that after 7 fruitless months of treatments, she had not succeeded in conceiving. Although it was an experience she would have loved, Reiley said that she is a woman with a fantastic partner, and it is Ok not to have a child.
