Former Made in Chelsea stars Lucy Watson and James Dunmore got engaged in Greece in September. The proposal details have been shrouded in secrecy until now, when Lucy revealed what exactly happened on that day during an Instagram Q&A.
REVEALED: Is this Lucy's secret engagement ring?
Lucy divulged the full proposal story when one of her fans asked: "How did James propose?", revealing that James planned a lavish boat trip while in Greece. She also went on to tell followers that she has a total of eight bridesmaids and is currently planning on hosting her wedding abroad.
Lucy Watson opened up about her VERY romantic proposal
For the proposal, James forged a letter supposedly from the hotel inviting them on a boat trip, when in fact this was a ploy and the luxury day out was entirely devised by James. Lucy was impressed, despite not knowing James’ involvement in the planning: "The boat was stunning… we went on a crazy beautiful tour of some private islands.
"We went to take a photo together and there he was on one knee," Lucy recalled. She admitted she was in complete shock when James popped the question: "My heart didn’t beat for like three seconds."

During Lucy’s recent Q&A she also opened up about her plans for an abroad wedding but admitted: "That may change." But something she was sure about was her bridal party, as she revealed she has already asked all eight of her bridesmaids!
Lucy told her followers she has hired event planners, @gspltd who have worked with Andrew Lloyd Webber and Ronan Keating in the past.
