Little Mix's Jesy Nelson and Jake Roche are engaged. Jake, 22, popped the question on stage at Manchester Arena on Sunday – with a little help from Ed Sheeran. Posting a picture on Instagram, the Rixton frontman told fans: "A year ago today I met her at Manchester Arena so it was only right, with a little help from my friend, that this happened. Best day of my life. "The image shows Jake – who is the son of Shane Richie and Coleen Nolan – down on one knee and holding out an engagement ring to 24-year-old Jesy, with Ed standing off to one side with his guitar. The Thinking Out Loud singer had made a special effort to help his friend pull off the perfect engagement, and Jake couldn't have been more grateful.
