The pair, who have been in a relationship for seven months, then headed off to Mykonos in Greece to celebrate Robyn’s big birthday.

The dancer, who has previously dated late Love Island contestant Mike Thalassitis, then went on to let her followers know that she had a bit of a health scare during the pair’s romantic trip.

Sharing a post on Facebook that shows her ‘checked in’ to Mykonos hospital, she posted a series of sad faces.

Explaining that she ended up on a drip after suffering from sun stroke, Robyn then uploaded a video of her relaxing in a hot tub detailing her experience.

‘Nice relaxing day with our Hot tub and view after a horrible trip to a&e last night and me ended up on a drip that cost £500,’ she explained to her Facebook friends and followers. ‘Never a dull moment,’ she continued.

Speaking of her new fiancé Christopher, Robyn wrote: ‘lucky he held my hand and cuddled up in the hospital bed with me always looking after me ❤’.

Christopher starred in the popular soap between 1978 and 1989 before leaving the acting industry to become a club manager.

Congratulations to the happy couple on their exciting news!
