Former CHEERS star John Ratzenberger is planning to wed just 10 months after his stunning fiancee dumped him for another man.

The actor, who played postman CLIFF CLAVIN on the long-running sitcom, proposed to film producer girlfriend LINDSAY McGRAIL last month (NOV05) and now the couple are making plans to marry on board a yacht off the coast of New England next summer (06), according to his publicist.

The 58-year-old TV star was unceremoniously dumped in January (05) by fiancee CATARINA TOUMEI just days before the couple were set to wed. Toumei instead wed multi-millionaire MARK FREDERICK.

Ratzenberger dumped his wife of 19 years when he first fell for Toumei.
