Dan Osborne has revealed how he popped the question to Jacqueline Jossa. The former TOWIE star proposed to his girlfriend during a family holiday to Greece where they were celebrating Jacqueline's sister's wedding.

The dad-of-two confirmed that he had asked for her hand in front of Jacqueline's family, telling Now magazine: "I wanted to do it in front of Jacqui's friends and family because I know how much they mean to her."

Dan recruited the help of Jacqueline's sister Katrina to help with his elaborate plan by pretending that the owner of the hotel they were staying in had requested they come to the hotel lobby for drinks.

The group then gathered on a balcony for champagne, with an unsuspecting Jacqueline not realising that there was a boat with a banner saying "Will you marry me?" waiting out of sight until Dan gave a thumbs up.

"I told Katrina to ask for a group picture so that everyone had their backs to the water, so they couldn't see the boat coming closer and closer, and then Katrina had to pass the ring behind her back to me," Dan explained.

"I said, 'Oh, look at that boat,' and when Jacqueline turned around, I was down on one knee with the ring."

However all did not go to plan as Jacqueline assumed that the romantic gesture was for someone else until Dan let out a nervous laugh.

"She covered her face with her hands she couldn't believe it," Dan revealed. "She kept saying 'Oh my God is this really happening?' She was really confused how it was possible for me to keep it all so secret from her, as she's so good at sussing things out.

"My knee was hurting so much! We stood cuddling for about five minutes after that."

Dan first revealed that he was engaged to Jacqueline on Twitter, writing: "She said YES!!! I am the luckiest man in the world to be marrying the woman of my dreams @jacquelineMjos!!!"

The couple welcomed their daughter Ella together in February and have appeared happier than ever since starting a family together, with both Dan and Jacqueline often sharing loved-up snaps on social media.
