Over the years, we have definitely heard of lots of weird and wonderful ways that some people choose to showcase their love for their partners.
However, Countryfile’s Ellie Harrison might just take the biscuit, with the 39-year-old TV star admitting that she got her arm scarred 10 times in honour of her partner, Matt Goodman.
Ellie has a row of 10 circular scars on her left arm, which she got on her and Matt’s 10 year anniversary.
Speaking to the Daily Mail about her bizarre markings, she explained: “It’s called scarification. You go to someone who is into body art and you get it done. There are only a few places you can go for it in the whole country.
“They’re done with a blade. We’re not married, but this was my great offering to him.
“Obviously if he leaves me I’ll have to create a different story about what it’s about!”
Ellie went on to admit that the process “really f*cking hurts”, and Matt was understandably shocked when she revealed her arm to him.
She continued: “He had no idea, so I presented may arm to him in this kind of clingfilm wrap. You have to scrub [the cuts] out and put Vaseline on, then clingfilm to keep the wounds open and clean.
“He was a bit shocked, I must say. He said he was conflicted, because I’d hurt myself in this pursuit, but he was obviously really quite emotional.”
Ellie and Matt have three young children together and “haven’t got round to” marrying even though they have been engaged for many years.
Speaking of her love for her partner, Ellie continued: “He’s the most handsome man on Earth. He’s my beloved and I hope we die together.
“Not yet. But that’s my wish, that we end up dying together.”
Well, one thing is for sure… Ellie Harrison certainly doesn’t do things by halves, does she?
