Ex- Eastenders Star Celebrates In Style...

For many brides-to-be, their hen nights is an assortment of strippers, fancy dress and cocktails. But for actress Martine McCutcheon, she shunned any light hearted fun for a classy hen trip to Paris! Ahead of her wedding to musician fiancé Jack McManus, the ex-EastEnder, 35, enjoyed a trip to the French capital with six of her closest friends.
 
Instead of comedy head boppers and sashes, the 35-year-old and her friends went for sexy trouser suits and stilettos as they took to the banks of the Seine, Paris.  But they gave the hen party some 'hen' feel with some red heart-shaped balloons.  
 
Speaking to Hello Magazine she admitted that being abandoned by her father when she was two left her wary of marriage. She said: 'If you've been abandoned by a parent or brought up by a single parent as I was, deep down you feel that's going to happen again'. 'Now, with Jack, I feel completely loved. In other relationships I've had to apologise for elements of who I am - 'Sorry about the press,' or, 'Sorry it's not glamorous 24/7.'  'With Jack, there's no need for me to apologise or compromise.' 
 
Mc Manus proposed by the River Thames last December after a four year courtship.  They celebrated their engagement with a Bohemian/New Romantic-themed party a few days before Christmas.
 
Recalling their engagement, she said: 'London's Embankment is one of my favourite places in the world and because it was snowing and there wasn't another soul around, there was something truly magical about it.  'It was there, by Albert Bridge, that Jack got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. It was so emotional. Then we ran back to the car laughing and squealing like kids as we were so excited.'
