"Spot the difference. @DarrenDOfficial you have made me the happiest girl in the world. Always...forever...and a Sophie Day," she wrote.

Day has been involved in multiple high-profile romances that have seen him get down on one knee – he's now been engaged seven times and married once.

He was first engaged to Anna Friel after the pair dated in the mid-90s, before he moved on to a romance with Coronation Street actor Tracy Shaw.

Day allegedly gave the same ring he had proposed with to Friel to the Maxine Peacock star.

After he and Shaw split, Day went on to court Isla Fisher and the pair also became engaged.

The couple appeared in Summer Holiday in 1998 at the Opera House in Blackpool.

It wasn't to be, however, and they parted ways in 2000, with Fisher later going on to marry Ali G star Sacha Baron Cohen.

His next flame was pantomime actor Adele Vellacot, with whom he had a short-lived engagement before moving on to with Suzanne Shaw.

During his stint in Celebrity Big Brother in 2016, Day spoke of how his affair with Shaw was exposed.

He said: "We were going behind our partner’s backs and my phone was being hacked at the time.

"They called me and told me they have three hours of audio from you and Suzanne, and if we don’t both give them a free interview we’ll put it on an 0898 number. I said I don’t believe ya and he quoted lines, like graphic, horrible, private, personal lines.

"We then went to see our partners to tell them we have met someone else and have feelings for each other. So she finished with her partner and I finished with mine."

He asked Shaw to be Mrs Day but a marriage never took place, although they did welcome son Corey in 2004.
