When did Lily Allen start wearing an engagement ring?

Rumours first began circulating that David had popped the question after Lily was spotted wearing a ring during a stroll around Chelsea, London in late November.

Her fans have also quizzed her about it on Instagram, but the British singer has always refused to comment.

Responding to a direct fan question, she joked: 'First rule of engagement club........,' referencing Brad Pitt's famous line from Fight Club ("you do not talk about Fight Club").
