A woman called Becky revealed she had been secretly proposing to her boyfriend Kris since December.

Photos flashed up showing her holding a ring behind his back as he took a shower, played with their kids and did some DIY around the house.

Sat in the audience, Becky asked Kris if we wanted to get married and he said yes!

Meanwhile, Natalie and Stephen have been together for two years and they’re expecting a baby in April.

Natalie popped the question and, of course, Stephen said yes.

Then Anne and Milos, who have been together for 35 years, got engaged after being next door neighbours as kids.

Viewers were left in tears over the proposals and took to Twitter to share their thoughts.

One person said: “Omg that had me in tears haha… Congrats to all the couples!”

Another wrote: “Damn 10 mins and I’m in floods of tears.”

A third tweeted: “I’m in tears here #SaturdayNightTakeaway.”
