McFly drummer and Strictly Come Dancing champion Harry Judd has asked his girlfriend Izzy Johnston to marry him.

He confirmed that she had said yes on his Twitter account yesterday (May 17th) explaining that he couldn’t be happier.

Later that day, he quipped on the social network: “I liked it, so I put a ring on it. #engaged.”

Judd proposed over a candlelit dinner in St Lucia where the couple are currently holidaying.

The couple have been together since 2005 when Izzy lent her violin skills to the band for their tour.

They moved in together just before he started competing in the dance competition Strictly last year.

He isn’t the only celebrity to have become engaged recently as Katie Price is believed to be marrying for the third time.

The model and businesswoman was seen wearing a pink diamond engagement ring on a recent skiing trip, suggesting she is engaged to Argentinean model Leonardo Penna.

IT crowd actor Chris O’Dowd has also recently proposed and he is now engaged to writer and TV presenter Dawn Porter.
