EastEnders: Cheryl Fergison’s Moroccan lover speaks about their love

Recent press reports revealed that EastEnders actress, Cheryl Fergison, who plays Heather Trott, is intending to marry a Moroccan man who’s 21 years her junior.

Yassin Al-Jermoni, Cheryl’s fiancé, has given an interview to the News of the World, in which he claims that he and Cheryl are very much in love.

Speaking from his Moroccan village home, Yassin said of Cheryl, “She is beautiful to me, and a wonderful woman.”

And when asked about the age difference between them, Yassin said, “Only jealous people talk about age. What does it matter that she is old? Or fat?

“I am young and she is old but we are in love.

“She is fat and I am cross- eyed with bad skin. We all have flaws.

“Hers is the fatness. Why is anything a problem when you are in love?”

The article goes on to state that Yassin, “freely admitted he was excited at the idea of Cheryl’s £100,000-a-year salary.”

He said, “We are in Africa – everyone looks for money, and so I look for money. It is what we do.

“I want money and I want visa and to go to Europe.”

“My goatherd days are behind me. I have money now from Cheryl. She likes to keep me nice.

“Thank you Cheryl.”

Yassin also revealed that Cheryl plans to quit her acting career to be his full-time wife when they marry. Cheryl owns a £430,000 semi- detached house in Sidcup, Kent, which she shares with her 11 year old son.

Yassin added, “I will go to London or she will come and live here in Morocco.

“She said she will give up everything for me, even the television. She was lonely. Now she has love.

“I will be famous when we are together. I am ready for this. With fame comes many riches. I am ready.”
