Former EastEnders star Bobby Davro has proposed to his long-term girlfriend.

The pair, who have dated on-and-off for 12 years, marked their exciting relationship milestone with family and friends, at The Kings Arms, Surrey.

According to The Sun, the star-studded event included surprise video messages to Vicky, 63, from the likes of Sir Cliff Richard, Gilbert O’Sullivan and Lee Mead.

A source told the publication: "Vicky was touched with all the messages.

"They’re wasn’t a dry eye in the house. They plan to tie the knot next year."

Vicky is the daughter of Wolves and England football great Billy Wright and Joy Beverley of the Beverley Sisters.

Former Celebrity Big Brother contestant Bobby, who is to play Buttons in Cinderella in Dartford, Kent, has three children with his ex-wife, Trudi Jameson, but they split in 2003.

It comes after Bobby lost his home and car after his business went bust with nearly £90,000 debts due to the pandemic.

The telly comic didn't t know how he was going to pay the bills and was forced to take out a Government bounce-back loan.

The final liquidator’s report for his entertainment company Orvad Enterprises Ltd lifted the lid on his financial plight.

Orvad Enterprises Ltd owed £89,909 to creditors including £32,100 to HM Revenue & Customs in corporation tax and PAYE and £49,177 to NatWest in loans and a £7,296 overdraft.

"There is no work", the stand-up said last year.

"I only did four gigs last year. I can’t earn anything. I haven’t been able to earn money for a year. It’s dreadful."

The report stated Davro was "out of work" as the "entertainment industry was totally shut.

It said he had taken out a bounce-back loan of up to £50,000 to help keep himself afloat.

The star – real name Robert Nankeville – had been forced to sell his home and car and hand over nearly £10,000 from the company’s bank account to pay off debts.

Liquidator Ashok Bhardwaj, who examined two years of bank statements covering 'the pandemic period', said he had been unable to sell off company equipment with a book value of £6,700 as it was 'very old and carried no value'.

He said Davro had "spent part" of his bounce-back loan "on living and paying his creditors".

Mr Bhardwaj said: "He also sold his personal property and injected £59,000 into the company to pay off the creditors.’"

Assets had been swallowed up in financial fees and there was nothing left for creditors.

The liquidator said the case "did not warrant further investigation".

Orvad Enterprises Ltd was put into a creditor’s voluntary liquidation last October which means the director has admitted he cannot pay the company’s debts.
