Made In Chelsea star Ollie Locke has announced his engagement to partner and long-time friend Gareth Locke.

The pair, who have been friends for 10 years, shared their happy news in the forthcoming marriages section of The Times on Tuesday.

Ollie then posted a picture of the page alongside a sweet tribute to his fiancé, saying that he “said yes on Sunday” and joking about already having the same surname.

He wrote: “I have known him for 10 years, and at many of my most important life moments he was in the background.

“Earlier this year we realised that what we had both been looking for was standing in front of us all along, the greatest hint was probably that we already have the same surname!”

Ollie, 30, added that he had “never been happier” and couldn’t wait for the “rest of his life with someone who makes him smile every day”.
