Ant McPartlin and his girlfriend Anne-Marie Corbett announced their engagement over the New Year period, after the I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here! host popped the question on Christmas Eve.

Ant's long-time best friend and hosting partner Declan Donnelly is unsurprisingly thrilled about the news, although he apparently hasn't had a chat with Ant about his own role at the wedding yet.

"He hasn't asked me yet," Dec told The Mirror. "I wait to be asked. We'll see!"

We can't imagine for a second that Dec won't be Ant's best man. He previously served as best man at Ant's 2006 wedding to Lisa Armstrong, who he was with until 2018.

Ant and Anne-Marie, who is often called Amzie, got together later that year, with Ant stating that she, their dogs and his family (and Newcastle United) were the 'greatest love' of his life.

When announcing the engagement, a representative for Ant said: "Ant and Amzie are delighted to announce their engagement. The proposal took place on Christmas Eve at home in a very romantic setting."
