Ant McPartlin is ENGAGED to Anne-Marie Corbett after romantic Christmas Eve proposal with co-host Declan Donnelly ‘expected to act as best man’ at their wedding
Ant McPartlin has gotten engaged to Anne-Marie Corbett after romantically popping the question on Christmas Eve.
The presenter, 45, who has been dating his love since March 2018, is thought to have been planning the proposal for some time and is ‘expected to ask Declan Donnelly to be his best man’.
A spokesperson told MailOnline: ‘Ant and Amzie are delighted to announce their engagement. The proposal took place on Christmas Eve at home in a very romantic setting.’
Congratulations! Ant McPartlin has reportedly gotten engaged to Anne-Marie Corbett
While a pal told The Sun: ‘Ant has been planning this for some time – but wanted to make sure the moment was just right.
‘He’s a traditionalist, so got down on one knee after first checking with Anne Marie’s family that he had their blessing. It was super-romantic, and obviously Anne-Marie said ‘yes’ straight away.’
‘Obviously getting engaged in the midst of a pandemic isn’t ideal when it comes to planning a wedding… at the moment a summer ceremony is looking extremely unlikely, so it may well be a 2022 affair.’
They added that Ant is expected to ask his co-host Dec to be his best man and that the presenter thoughtfully designed Anne-Marie’s ring himself.
Getting serious: Ant and Anne-Marie were first linked in March 2018, two months after Ant released a statement to confirm that he had split from wife of 12-years Lisa Armstrong
Ant and Anne-Marie were first linked in March 2018, two months after Ant released a statement to confirm that he had split from wife of 12-years Lisa Armstrong.
Anne-Marie separated from her husband Scott in October 2017, and the pair amicably co-parent their two daughters.
While Lisa and Ant finalised their divorce back in April after their split in January 2018 following the presenter’s highly documented battle with painkillers and alcohol.
The engagement also comes after Ant made a sweet reference to Anne-Marie on I’m A Celebrity when he said ‘my happy place is at home with my girlfriend.’
During one of the trials, radio host Jordan North, 30, who finished second in the show, had to lay entombed in a metal cage while 50 snakes slithered all over him.
In an attempt to make the 10 minutes go by faster, Jordan chatted away to the hosts and asked them random questions as well as for their autographs.
The 30-year-old DJ asked the duo to name their ‘happy place’, telling Ant: ‘You go first.’
He quickly said, ‘at home with my girlfriend and the kids’, which prompted an ‘oh, that’s lovely’ from Jordan as he tried his best to stay composed with the snakes.
