After sharing a photo with the caption: “I said YES” to her Instagram feed, Lucy took to her stories to reveal to her 1.4 million followers that she felt like she was dreaming.

She posted a video of herself walking down to dinner where her 35-year-old now-fiancé would eventually propose. “I still had no idea”, she wrote alongside the clip.

“I feel like I’m in a fairytale. Thank you sooo soooo much for all your lovely messages”.

Ryan couldn’t wait to share the exciting news with his 943,000 followers, posting an image of the pair staring lovingly at each other as Lucy showed off her dazzling ring.

It would seem that the Results with Lucy founder had been waiting a little while for Ryan to pop the question! In a chat with OK! Magazine last year, Ryan joked that Lucy wanted him to propose in 2019.

“She’s always dropping hints about what she wants to happen. I think Lucy wants me to propose next year!”, Ryan said.

We both know that we want to get married and have kids one day and we’re happy that our relationship is moving in that direction.”

Ryan and Lucy gave us all a big clue as to what their big day could be like during a chat with OK! Magazine back in August 2018 when they revealed their dream wedding plans.

Ryan said: “We’ll have a massive wedding. It would be huge and one big party. It would be bigger than my brother Adam’s!”

For that reason, we’re expecting something pretty spectacular. Perhaps their Italian proposal could be a clue… might the pair decide to return for their big day and get married in Italy?

The guest list is expected to be pretty star-studded, too. Ryan’s brothers, ex-Love Islander Scott Thomas and Hollyoaks actor Adam are assumed to be in attendance, plus Lucy’s former The Only Way is Essex co-star and best friend, Lydia Bright.
