Ant McPartlin is engaged to Anne-Marie Corbett after Christmas proposal
It was a very happy Christmas for Ant McPartlin, who has announced his engagement to girlfriend Anne-Marie Corbett.
The TV presenter popped the question at home on Christmas Eve after over two and a half years of dating.
"Ant has been planning this for some time - but wanted to make sure the moment was just right," a friend of the couple told The Sun.
"He's a traditionalist, so got down on one knee after first checking with Anne Marie's family that he had their blessing. It was super-romantic, and obviously Anne-Marie said 'yes' straight away."
The couple aren't planning their big day just yet, the friend added, saying that it's likely they'll tie the knot next year.
A spokesperson for the couple confirmed the news, saying; "Ant and Amzie are delighted to announce their engagement. The proposal took place on Christmas Eve at home in a very romantic setting."
Ant and Anne-Marie have been together since April of 2018, having met when she began working for him as a personal assistant.
The couple moved in together in 2020, not long after Ant finalised his divorce from ex-wife Lisa Armstrong. They had split in 2018 after 11 years of marriage.
Anne-Marie has two teenage children from a previous relationship.
