Kris later took to his own Instagram to reveal how Max had made the proposal extra special using his grandmother’s jewellery to make part of the engagement ring.

He wrote: “The beautiful soul that is my best friend asked me to marry him yesterday. I can’t begin to describe how happy I am.

“I love him beyond words, we laugh every single day and I’m so so grateful that he came in to my life.”

He added: “I had no idea at all! But it was just perfect… I mean this film says it all.

Max had asked my Mum for any jewellery that my Gran had. Mum still had my Grans locket and he has had it made in to the middle of the engagement ring on the inside. So so special.

“Thank you to the job that brought us together, our incredible family and friends. And the amazing love from you all. I’m a very lucky boy.
