A very happy birthday for Fearne Cotton after boyfriend pops the question

Having famously admitted to fancying Prince William, Fearne Cotton has been swept off her feet by her own Prince Charming.

The Radio 1 DJ is engaged to her on-off skater boyfriend Jesse Jenkins after he popped the question on Friday – her 29th birthday.

Romantic Jesse, 24, reportedly led his blindfolded girlfriend to Richmond Park where he got down on one knee and proposed.

"It was a big shock for everyone but Fearne immediately accepted," a source told the Sunday People.

"It was the last thing she was expecting but she didn’t hesitate to say yes… Fearne was so touched at how Jesse did it – it was really romantic."

Writing on her Twitter page on Friday, Fearne hinted about her big news, saying: "Having the BEST day full of surprises!!"

A spokesman for the London-born presenter, who was seen leaving the Radio 1 studios on Monday wearing her new ring (pictured), has confirmed that she and Jesse are engaged.

The couple have been dating on and off since 2008, but rekindled their romance properly six months ago.
