The comments were flooded with well wishes and congratulations for the couple, who look blissfully happy in the picture from the magazine.

However, it seems that not everyone had something positive to say about Jake’s announcement.

After sharing the news on Twitter, Jake followed up with a reference to some negative feedback.

He tweeted: “Again I would like to say thanks to everyone on congratulating me and @Fogartydanielle …. and I shouldn’t bite to that 1% of trolls.”

Danielle, who is the daughter of motorbike racing champion Carl Fogarty, also shared the picture on Instagram, with an adorable caption of her own.

It read: “So fairytales do come true. My best friend and soulmate @jakequickenden14 asked me for his hand in marriage and of course I said YES!!

“It was the most perfect day a girl could wish for, I’m on cloud 9!!
