She told how she bought him a Rolex watch as an engagement present as the pair threw themselves into organising their dream wedding.

She told OK!: “I had an inkling he was going to pop the ­question because he kept putting something on my finger and going. ‘Right, close your eyes and forget this ever happened’.

“I find wedding stuff a bit like work because I’ve got married so many times at work but this is for real and it’s exciting. I just want it to be really relaxing.”
