Congratulations to CBeebies star Maddie Moate, who has announced her engagement to fellow BBC presenter Greg Foot. The 24-year-old Do You Know? host shared her happy news on Instagram, revealing that Greg, 34, had popped the question during a recent holiday in Thailand. She shared a photo showing the couple together on a beach, with Maddie holding up her left hand to reveal her unique ring. "The time we got ENGAGED!" she wrote. "Yep, whilst we were in Thailand @gregfoot popped the question and of course I said YES! It's been an incredible few weeks enjoying our engagement as a couple and sharing our news with our family, but now feels like the right time to spread the word (and stop hiding my left hand!) SURPRISE."
