Hamish Gaman has asked his former Dancing On Ice partner Saara Aalto to be his "best woman" at his wedding.

Now, Saara - who was partnered with Hamish during the series last year - has revealed she loves that he "dared to be different by having a best woman".

She wrote on Twitter: "I'm honoured @HamishGaman has asked me to be his BEST WOMAN at his wedding to Amelia.

"I [love] that you followed your heart & dared to be different by having a best woman.

I love that you followed your heart & dared to be different by having a best woman.

"I can't wait to celebrate with you in Dec. I love you both!"

It comes after Hamish announced that he and Amelia are engaged.

Announcing the couple's happy news, he tweeted alongside the cover of their interview with HELLO! magazine: "It’s finally time for some good news. We’re engaged.

"And we’ve now set a date! After so much negativity, it feels so good to talk about something positive. #DancingOnIce (sic)"

Hamish has admitted that he decided to pop the question "sooner" than the couple had "anticipated" after his partner supported him through a difficult few months, seemingly referring to his alleged feud with Caprice Bourret.

He told the publication: "I've known for a long time that I want to spend the rest of my life with Amelia, but what I've been through made me keen to make that commitment to her sooner than we'd anticipated.

"For the past few months I've been in a dark place which I couldn't have got through without her."

The loved-up pair plan to get married in December.
