Vicky Pattison has announced her boyfriend John Noble popped the question and she said… ‘yes!’
The former Geordie Shore star says she burst into tears when John Noble, whom she’s been dating since the end of last year, got down on one knee with a beautiful 3.6-carat marquise-cut diamond ring while they were spending the weekend at his countryside home on the outskirts of Newcastle, North East England.
The romantic moment took place when they were walking John’s dog Roxie and Vicky says she got a few celebratory wet kisses from the pet pooch.
‘I was spending a few days at John’s house, which is just outside Newcastle and surrounded by lovely countryside. One morning he suggested we take his dog Roxie out for a walk. After a while we stopped for a sit down on a bench overlooking some lovely scenery. I was playing with Roxie when she shook her head and got slobber all over my face.
‘When I wiped it away, John was in front of me on one knee. I couldn’t believe it, I burst into tears. I said yes and then I looked at the ring and I was blown away, it was amazing.’
So simple, but amazing!
However, the 29-year-old TV star has admitted she was convinced John – who she first dated when she was 21 – was going to break up with her because he didn’t seem as into her as before and even refused to see her one weekend in the run up.
‘In the days leading up to the proposal I was convinced that he was about to break up with me! We’d had a difficult few weeks because I had been really busy with work and couldn’t make it to see him.
‘I was hoping he would come to see me [in Essex] but he kept saying he had too much on. It was so out of character for him that I started panicking, thinking he was going to finish things with me. I was crying to all my friends all the time and arguing with him on the phone because I was so sure he didn’t want to be with me anymore.’
And Vicky will go for a royal look when she walks down the aisle.
She said: ‘I loved the wedding dresses that the Duchess of Cambridge and Pippa Matthews wore, so I think I’ll use those as inspiration.’
Congratulations to Vicky and John!
