CARLEY Stenson is preparing her love nest with boyfriend, Hollyoaks star Danny Mac.
The former Billinge resident has recently bought herself a cockapoo pup called Barney - short for Barnaby.
She told Now magazine: “Barney looks like a bear, so we wanted to call him Teddy.
“But my friend has a dog called Teddy, so we decided to call him Barney... It’s such a gorgeous name.”
Meanwhile, the ex-Hollyoaks actress is starring as the Lady Of The Lake in the musical Spamalot.
Her previous West End roles include Elle Woods in Legally Blonde and Princess Fiona in Shrek The Musical.
She admitted she was a massive fan of Monty Python, saying: “I grew up on Life Of Brian.
“I remember watching it with my sister and I kept rewinding the bits where they swore.
“As I started to get older I realised: ‘Oh that’s what they meant’ and ‘that’s what they were trying to get at!’”
Carley perform six nights a week - twice on Friday evening at 6pm and 9pm - plus a matinée performance every Saturday afternoon at The Playhouse Theatre London until February 22 2014.
