Madness stopped their Edinburgh Castle gig to present an onstage marriage proposal for one loved-up concertgoer.

The 70s icons performed at the historic city centre site on Friday night, July 5, and as frontman Suggs performed the group's 1981 hit It Must Be Love, a picture of a couple was projected into the big screen.

It was all because one man, John, had set up an elaborate plan to show how madly in love he is with his partner Heather, reports The Scottish Sun.

After singing the song's iconic chorus, Suggs stopped singing and began clapping as the rest of the crowd joined in. A picture of John and Heather then appeared behind him surrounded by love hearts.

The words: "Heather, you are my world," then followed as members of the crowd caught on and started cheering.
