"I was playing hard to get for about a year," Alesha revealed during a televised appearance on The Jonathan Ross Show.

"And then I had the foot operation and I couldn't walk and he was literally sleeping on the floor looking after me every day.'I was just looking at him thinking, 'That is for better or for worse isn't it.'

"I looked a state, he was sleeping on the floor because I was on the couch, I couldn't even get up the stairs. If he can carry me to the toilet then he's a keeper."
