The Sun reports that someone outside the coffee shop asked him if he could confirm the reports.

Simon said with a big smile: “What do you think?”

After this week’s news surfaced, a source told the same newspaper that the couple couldn’t be happier.

And that’s even after Lauren – the mother of Simon’s seven-year-old son Eric – was allegedly “stunned” by his proposal.

The source told the paper: “Simon and Lauren are ridiculously, nauseatingly in love – incredibly, lockdown brought them closer than ever.”

Not bad for a man who once said he didn’t believe in marriage.

“I think she’s The One,” she told listeners, “but I don’t know if she ever thought he would put a ring on it.

“Then last night we all got the text saying ‘It’s happening’.

“We couldn’t believe it and I knew it would be in the papers today if we got the text last night. So I was like, ‘Oh my goodness’.”
