Heather Locklear locks in wedding number three

The former Melrose Place actress is heading down the aisle with her one-time co-star.

A s two of the characters in 90s drama Melrose Place, Heather Locklear and Jack Wagner’s on-again, off-again TV romance kept fans captivated for years. They sizzled as Amanda Woodward and Peter Burns, a mega-manipulative duo who faked their own deaths – only to remarry on the pristine sands of a Hawaiian beach in the super-soap’s final scene.

Now the two are at last getting their real-life happily-ever-after. A delighted Heather and Jack have announced their engagement after four years of dating. Heather, who turns 50 next month, hopes it will be third time lucky when she heads down the aisle.

Back in 1986, the beautiful blonde – who also starred in Dynasty and Spin City – wed her first husband, Motley Crue drummer Tommy Lee. In 1994, a year after that marriage ended, she took the plunge again, this time exchanging vows with Bon Jovi guitarist Richie Sambora.

“I don’t date rock ’n’ rollers – I just marry them,” Heather once quipped of her penchant for bad-boy musicians. In 1997, she and Richie welcomed their daughter Ava, now a budding actress, into the world. Sadly, their union was also not destined to last, with the couple’s divorce finalised a decade later.
