James McVey and Kirstie Brittain hosted an engagement party on Saturday
It would be no surprise that Harry attended the engagement party; James struck up a close friendship with the football manager during their time together in the jungle, and the musician even asked Harry for his approval of the engagement ring he had chosen for Kirstie a few days after Christmas.
Speaking to HELLO! in an exclusive interview sharing his engagement news in January, James explained: "Harry said he knew a really good jeweller whenever I was ready to do it and I thought, I may as well just do it.” James, 25, told HELLO! how he arranged to meet Harry a few days after Christmas at Franses, a jeweller in Bournemouth, where James grew up and which is close to Harry’s home in Sandbanks, Dorset. "By the time Harry arrived I had already chosen the ring; as soon as I saw it I knew it was the one. And Harry loved it too," he said.

James proposed to his girlfriend of four years during a romantic trip to the Lake District, and later shared a photo of the exact spot where he got down on one knee. "04/01/19 Friars Crag, Keswick. 08:28. No idea how @kirstiebrittain didn't turn around and ruin this picture before I took it!" he wrote on Instagram. "This was the most nerve-wracking moment of my entire life. Thanks so much for all the lovely messages – we are over the moon to share our news with you."
