Dani Dyer has sent her 3.2 million Instagram followers into a spin by posting a sweet engagement announcement on her Instagram stories, writing: "I said YES! My soulmate," over a sparkling snap of her hands bearing an engagement ring! She also shared the snap on Twitter, simply writing: "I can't believe it," with a shocked emoji. But, it turns out the adorable post is in fact a prank set up by Capital FM presenters Roman Kemp and Sonny Jay, who convinced Dani to share the post as a joke.

Dani's post sent fans wild

On Tuesday morning's show, the Love Island star was dared to trick her followers by one listener. Roman said: "We had a dare sent in from someone, and what did they say Sonny?" He replied: "He came up with, 'tweet that you just got engaged to Jack'." Roman then added, "Now, you've got 3.2 million followers. We've just uploaded this to your Instagram Story. You've tweeted this as well."
