‘This isn’t a drill it’s actually happening.’

Love Island star Eyal Booker penned: ‘Amazing. Huge congrats,’ as Jake’s X Factor co-star Josh Cuthbert added: ‘MATE AMAZING,’ with a string of heart eye emoji.

The couple welcomed their first child, little Leo, together in February, with the therapist also mum to son Freddie from a previous relationship.

The Dancing on Ice champion has been preparing to get down on one knee for quite some time, as he teased that a proposal was ‘on the cards’ earlier this year.

Spilling the beans on a possible engagement, he told Entertainment Daily: ‘We’re not engaged yet. I’ll just leave it at that. Very soon. Very soon. I’ll get down on one knee very soon. 

‘Obviously it’s on the cards. Usually people are married then they have kids but we’ve done it the other way round.’

However, despite putting a ring on Sophie’s finger, the bride and groom may be waiting a while to walk down the aisle, as Jake wants ‘everything to clear up first’.

Hopefully we get an invite to that big day!
