The couple have been together for nine years.

Talking to Hello! about the proposal, Fleur said: “I said yes immediately! How Marcel did everything was just wonderful.

"We’re in a really traditional Japanese hotel and there were petals on the bed and champagne…Then I turned around and he was there, with the ring. He said: 'Fleur East, will you be my wife?’”

She continued: “I couldn’t believe it. The ring is so beautiful and yellow is my favourite colour."
