Veteran actor Charles Dance is engaged to marry his girlfriend of three years.
The 63-year-old Gosford Park star is planning to exchange vows with artist Eleanor Boorman, 37, "sooner rather than later" in a "small and private wedding ceremony".
He says, "I have got used to the bachelor life over the last six years so now I am in the process of de-bachelorising myself - but it (the wedding) will happen shortly".
Dance was previously married to sculptor Joanna Haythorn, the mother of his two grown-up children. They divorced in 2004.
