I’ve literally just landed back in the UK from Japan and I can’t believe I can say that I’m engaged to be a WIFE!! My boyfriend Marcel proposed to me while we were in Tokyo. What a trip to remember!

Fleur also joked that she “somehow convinced” Marcel to spend the rest of his life with her and added: “So happy to share this news”.
Speaking to Hello! Magazine about the proposal, the I’m a Celeb star said: “We’re in a really traditional Japanese hotel and there were petals on the bed and champagne – when we first got here I was like, ‘Oh my goodness, this hotel goes above and beyond!’ Then I turned around and he was there, with the ring. He said: ‘Fleur East, will you be my wife?'”
“I couldn’t believe it. The ring is so beautiful and yellow is my favourite colour. Me and Marcel have been together for nine years so we’ve spoken about marriage a lot, and he knew exactly what I wanted. It’s perfect. I cried instantly.”
