Comedians Fred Cooke and Julie Jay secretly got engaged during lockdown.

The couple, who are currently expecting their first child, got engaged three months ago – but “forgot” to announce it.

Speaking on The Shift podcast, Julie said: “Myself and Fred got engaged but we didn’t say it to anyone.”

“We actually got engaged about three months ago. I forget because we didn’t tell anyone. We were like, ‘Who cares in the lockdown if you’re engaged.'”

“Sorry I completely forgot. It’s at the stage now where I feel we can’t say on social media we’re engaged. I must sit down one day and just tell people. Sure what does it even mean? It means nothing. We said we’d do a registry office thing.”

Julie continued: “The engagement story is kind of funny because I was walking down and Fred – this is in April or May and there was no one around.

“So Fred had run down to the pier because there’s only one place to run in this little country area. I was like, ‘I’ll follow you down’. So I walked down to the pier at a leisurely pace.”

“As I turned the corner I see this guy, he’s known as mad Mick so you can visualise him. We all know him already like don’t we? So I see Mike and he’s there with his Bulmer’s or whatever, happy out.”

“And then I see Fred who is what I thought lying on the ground, I thought he was after having a fall so I start running over to see was he OK.

“And then Mike is like, ‘I can’t believe what I’m witnessing is this for f***ing real?’ He was on his own I don’t know who he was speaking to probably me.”

“But then I went over and Fred proposed and I was like, ‘Oh yeah great. Thank you. Absolutely. Sure we’ll do it.’ And then Mike shouts across, ‘Well did you say yes Johnson you slapper?’

“Then I said, ‘yeah’ and he said, ‘I knew you’d say yes you slapper.'”
