"We're so incredibly happy and excited," he said of his bride-to-be. "She makes me feel as if I can do anything. I'm in awe of everything she does. With her I feel complete."

The couple's happy announcement comes after Hamish and his Dancing on Ice skating partner Caprice Bourret went their separate ways in January. The events left him wanting to marry Amelia sooner than originally planned. "I've known for a long time that I want to spend the rest of my life with Amelia," he said. "But what I've been through made me keen to make that commitment to her sooner than we'd anticipated." The skating pro continued: "For the past few months I've been in a dark place which I couldn't have got through without her. Recent events have made me realise just how much I love her. Planning our wedding together has brought light to the darkness."
