    X Factor star Ella Henderson is engaged.

    Jack, who has now retired from competitive swimming, popped the question during a romantic holiday to Mauritius.

    Ella has also since posted some sweet pictures of them both taken moments later.

    The couple are wearing cream bath robes in the snaps and are smiling and kissing while Ella flashes her huge rock.

    Posting the photos on Instagram, she wrote: "So this happened. here’s to life with you & all its adventures @jackrexburnell."

    Unsurprisingly, Ella's post caught the attention of her excited fans, with some rushing to leave a message for the star in the comment section.

    One fan gushed: "Woooo massive congrats to you both !!!"

    Another added: "Omg congratulations"

    A third person said: |Aaaaaaahhhhh so so happy for you guys!!!!!! The best news!!!!! Congratulations."

    While a fourth social media user wrote: "Enormous congrats Ella!!"

    Ella and Olympic swimmer Jack met on a dating app after the This Is Real singer swore off men following a devastating break-up.

    They met and fell in love during lockdown.

    However, it almost didn’t happen as Ella decided to take a step back from finding love until she realised it was impossible to have even the smallest of flirts with hospitality closed due to safety measures.

    Speaking to Metro.co.uk, the singer said: "It’s funny, we always say we never would have met and crossed paths probably if it wasn’t for the lockdown.

    "The reason for going on the dating app was because it was a long period of time before we could go out and socialise.

    "I missed my friends and wanted to go to the bar, have a cocktail, chat somebody up and let them chat you up but you couldn’t have that time to do that."

    Ella had just come out of a relationship when she signed up to the dating app and swiped right for Jack.

    The songstress competed in the ninth series of The X Factor in 2012, finishing in sixth place despite being a strong favourite to win.

    She signed with Syco Music shortly after, and released her debut studio album, Chapter One 2014 , which reached number one in the UK.
