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

The couple revealed that they were an item in 2019, after Lily spoke about her desire to find the right person during an interview in 2017.

"I've learned a lot about myself because of the relationships that haven't worked out," she told Sunday People. "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."
