EastEnders' Cheryl Fergison, 56, celebrates her 11yr wedding anniversary with rarely seen toyboy Yassine el Jamouni, 35

CHERYL Fergison marked her 11th wedding anniversary today by sharing a loved up snap with husband Yassine el Jamouni.

The 56-year-old, famed for playing Heather Trott on the BBC soap, can be seen cuddling up to her man, 35, in the shot captioned:  “It’s our wedding Anniversary ❤️ 11 years of Love.”

Her followers rushed to congratulate her on such a milestone with former Hollyoaks star Nicole Barber-Lane, writing: “Happy Anniversary ? you look fantastic ? ❤.”

Another commented: “Aww, how lovely! I’ve never seen your husband before! Happy Anniversary! Are you celebrating? ?.”

Cheryl mostly keeps her romance with Moroccan born Yassine out of the limelight because of the age gap.

Speaking recently about proving people wrong with their romance, Cheryl said she believes women face more criticism than men when it comes to being the older one in a relationship.

She told the Mirror: “It seems to be quite cool for the men, like Mick Jagger, to date younger. And it seems okay for them to have someone else two years later.

“But people don’t give any kudos to a woman dating someone younger, even though we’ve been together 11 years.

“Well we don’t care. It really is absolutely water off a duck’s back to us now. I just feel sorry for them, that they need to criticise our life.”

As well as being sneered at for the age gap, Cheryl and Yassine have also had to deal with racist stereotyping.

When her son Alex, 22, from her first marriage to Afghani Jamshed Saddiqui, asked his Alexa to tell him a fact about his mum, the family were shocked by the response.

The piece of tech told them that Cheryl is married to a Moroccan goat herder, but Yassine has never even owned a single goat during the relationship.

The answer left Cheryl baffled and she put it down to racism, sexism and ageism.

Cheryl left EastEnders a year after tying the knot with Yassine in 2011.
