Carol McGiffin plants a kiss on toyboy Mark as they enjoy a boozy lunch in Miami

They’ve been engaged for 11 years and are yet to set a wedding date.

However, Carol McGiffin and fiance Mark Cassidy showed they’re just as in love as ever as they enjoyed a romantic boozy lunch on holiday in Florida.

The couple, who share a 22 year age gap, have spent the past few days in Miami after disembarking from a Caribbean cruise.

The Loose Women star, 58, and Mark, 36, had spent a week touring some of the West Indies on a luxury cruise.

On Monday, they spent the morning on the beach as Carol drank at Bud Light beer while Mark took a dip in the Atlantic Ocean.

In a 2017 interview, she said: "Of course [the wedding is still on]! It’s definitely going to happen next year.

"Although, to be fair, I have said that for the last five or six years. Look seriously, it’s important to us – we’ve lost family this year, and that cemented that we want to be together and married."

Meanwhile, Carol returned as a panellist on Loose Women last year following a five year absence.
