After a failed proposal on MIC, pregnant Maeva D'Ascanio got engaged to her fiancé James Taylor at the Trevi Fountain in Rome, Italy. The couple shared an emotional video of the proposal in which James got down on one knee after Maeva made a wish whilst throwing a coin into the Trevi fountain with her eyes closed.

Speaking exclusively to HELLO! about the moment she opened her eyes to a gorgeous diamond engagement ring, Maeva said: "I did my wish which was, 'I really hope James is going to propose to me soon.'" She added: "And then I opened my eyes and he was there on one knee. I was thinking 'Wow, this is it! Is this real?' It was everything I had ever wanted."

Lucy and James had a picture-perfect Greek proposal back in September 2020. They met on the set of Made in Chelsea and started dating in 2015, and James popped the question on a boat trip. "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 added: "My heart didn’t beat for like three seconds."

Jamie Laing announced that he was engaged to Sophie Habboo in December 2021, after presenting the Made in Chelsea star with a large oval diamond engagement ring. 

He opened up to his close friend Spencer Matthews about how he "freaked out" during his proposal at the Rosewood Hotel, where they had their first date. "I went there in the middle of the day, around 1 o'clock in the afternoon. I got balloons, I got candles, I got flowers, I got everything. And she was like, 'Oh, I'm stuck in traffic.' I was like, 'Oh my god.' I had lit so many candles the room was roasting, it was so hot! 

"So I turn the aircon on and the balloons were flying everywhere because the aircon blows them all over and I'm like, 'Oh god, this is death.'"
