Boyfriend Ollie Piotrowski proposed to Hollyoaks actress Jorgie Porter in December 2021, just weeks after the Channel 4 soap star shared the sad news she had miscarried quadruplets
Jorgie Porter has been talking wedding plans, after fiancé Ollie Piotrowski popped the question in December 2021.
Speaking on her Loose Lips podcast, Jorgie, 34, confessed she “never in her life” thought anyone would ask for her hand in marriage.
Chatting with co-host Sharon Carpenter, the actress spoke of “Cirque du Soleil-style” plans for her big day and how she is recovering following making the news of her pregnancy loss public.
“I never in my life thought I’d ever be proposed to, so this is a surprise no matter what!” Jorgie exclaimed during her first chat of 2022 with her broadcast journalist pal.
Sharon, 39, then probed her friend on how she sees her wedding day panning out.
“You and I talked about getting married and how your wedding ceremony might look, right? How you’ll go flying across the ceiling, the hanging from the rafters, Cirque du Soleil-style, whipping off items of clothing, as you get down to the floor, to the altar, goodness knows how scantily clad you would be once you get down there.
“But, you know, is this still the plan or are you saving that now for your honeymoon?” she asked the Channel 4 soap star.
Jorgie explained that things may be a bit scaled back but she still “100% wants flamboyant hats”.
I think, I’m still me at the end of the day. I didn’t think it would actually happen in real life, so all those thoughts probably have to be a bit downscaled but then again, the audience would expect it,” she replied on her hit podcast.
“My guests, my friends, would expect, I think what they know me as, so I don’t think it’ll be too far from, you know…”
The Theresa McQueen actress shared her engagement news on December 5, showing off her new ring in a cute snap where property developer Ollie kissed her cheek.
Elsewhere in the latest instalment of her Loose Lips podcast, Jorgie also discussed her recent miscarriage, revealing that she kept her pregnancy loss a secret for weeks because she “couldn’t find anyone” who had been through the same experience.
After discovering she was expecting quadruplets in 2021, the star was heartbroken to find out there was no sign of life in any of the embryo sacs at the 14 weeks stage.
Chatting with Sharon, the former Dancing On Ice star opened up about her experience and the outpouring of support she has received.
“Right now I feel very loved by everyone I’ve had the most amazing response, amazing messages people have been incredible, event on sites where you think people wouldn’t usually be that nice, I’ve felt the love,” the candidly admitted on the podcast.
“I think as well I did it because I’m very open, also we have got a podcast, we open up we tell our truths, we’re lucky we get to talk people through their problems and we get to say what we’ve been through in their lives and given them advice… I can’t say I’m a therapist or I know the right things, but my experience has been, a journey.”
