EastEnders legend Natalie Cassidy passionately kisses fiancé in sweet Christmas snap

EastEnders star Natalie Cassidy shares a smooth with her fiancé Marc Humphreys on Christmas Day, in a new picture uploaded to Instagram.

Camera man Marc picks up the soap legend, 39, as they kiss in front of the Christmas tree, while she wraps her arms around his neck.

Sharing the sweet picture on her Instagram Story, Natalie, who plays Sonia Fowler in EastEnders, simply captioned the snap: "A great Christmas Day. [love heart emoji]"

She also shared a picture of herself and Mac, who works on EastEnders, with her children, Eliza, 12, and Joanie, six.

Joanie is picked up by her big sister and Natalie and Mark, as they smile for the camera, with the kids wearing matching red pyjamas.

Natalie has been with Marc since 2014.

They couple got engaged in October 2015 and became parents to daughter Joanie in August 2016, but the pair have yet to tie the knot.

The actress shares Eliza with ex-boyfriend Adam Cottrell.

This is not the first family celebration Natalie has shared with her fans on Instagram.

In August, the actress, who has played Sonia regularly since 1993, shared a string of photos from her youngest daughter's birthday party.

In the first photo cheeky Joanie is seen pulling a funny face at the camera while stood in her pyjamas with a pink balloon in the shape of a number six in the background and a pile of presents.

More photos show Joanie enjoying the rest of her special day as she blows out candles and becomes an assistant for a magician at her party.

Natalie also shared photos of the cake, decorations and party favours from the rainbow-themed celebration as it adorned multicoloured balloons and personalised sweet boxes with a rainbow and Joanie's name etched on the front.

In the final photo, Natalie gathers her daughter and husband Marc for a sweet group photo, as they grin for the camera.

Natalie wrote in the caption: "Our gorgeous Joanie had the best 6th birthday ever! Celebrated with nearest and dearest, she loved the whole day.

"Where does the time go? I can’t believe she is 6 and getting funnier by the minute."

Earlier this year, Natalie said that she is trying to follow in the footsteps of the late Dame Barbara Windsor by helping new co-stars when they join her on the set of EastEnders.

The actor learned the ropes from Dame Barbara and fellow soap favourite Wendy Richard.

Both women were established performers when they joined the cast of the soap opera, but Natalie was still schoolgirl at the time that she uttered her first lines in Albert Square.
