Daisy also took to social media to express her happiness at being engaged, and admitted she cannot wait to marry her "best friend".

She wrote: "On Thursday evening Luke Jerdy asked me to marry him by the beach in front of my family.

"I've never felt a happiness like this. It's so surreal but nothing has ever felt more natural.

She said yes. Daisy Wood-Davis is going to be my wife. I'll take that.

"I can't wait to marry my best friend and celebrate how lucky we are to have found what we have. (sic)"

What's more, she praised Luke - who plays Jesse Donovan on the Channel 4 soap - for designing the engagement ring "of [her] dreams".

She added: "Not to mention, he designed me the engagement ring of my DREAMS. I have spent the last few days staring lovingly at him and the ring in equal measure (maybe more the ring) Let the celebrations commence! (sic)"
