Director Charlie also shared the news on his own social media page, writing: "In a time of uncertainty and darkness you have illuminated my life. I will forever cherish my adventure with you."

Speaking about love during an interview with Sunday People, the Mirror Mirror star said: "I’ve learned a lot about myself because of the relationships that haven’t worked out.

"I’ve had some good and some bad relationships. I want someone to make me laugh. I need to just be enough for someone. I would like to be -accepted in my pyjamas or wearing something glamorous."
