Molly-Mae and Tommy have been going strong for the past four years and welcomed their first child in January.

Tommy has faced relentless pressure to pop the question over the years, but he made the moment as romantic as possible.

Speaking previously about getting married, Tommy admitted he had wanted to propose sooner but, given his hectic schedule as an athlete, he had to switch things around.

However, he assured the Loose Men panel earlier this year that he is ‘100% ready for marriage!’
