Oliver Proudlock took to Instagram on Monday to debut a brand new tattoo on his forearm – and it's of his fiancée Emma Louise Connolly. Created by tattooist Matt Roe, the stunning sketch is based on a photo of Emma at the beach and is certainly a work of art. Needless to say, Oliver's bold move shocked some of the former MIC star's followers, with one writing beneath the photo: "OMG!" and another adding: "OMG, stop the lights."

Many more were quick to reply to the 31-year-old's snap, letting him know just how much they loved his new ink. One follower gushed: "That's so cool!" while a second exclaimed: "That's pretty damn epic."

Famous faces, too, praised Oliver's new tattoo. DJ Brendan Fallis left a comment saying: "And they say chivalry is dead. Well done stud." Tom Grennan sweetly noted: "That's ledge," and it sounds as though Emma herself was enamoured by her partner's gesture. The model wrote: "WOW," beneath Oliver's Instagram post.

The happy couple have been engaged since 2018, when jewellery designer Oliver proposed to Emma on their four-year anniversary. The couple took to Instagram straight away to tell fans their happy news, and 28-year-old Emma couldn't help but gush about the bespoke engagement ring she had been gifted.

Designed by her husband-to-be himself, the black diamond, art deco ring is absolutely stunning. Emma told her followers: "I’m genuinely not sure if I’ll ever stop crying. @Proudlock designed the most breathtaking ring of my DREAMS using the diamonds from his Grandma’s engagement ring. That’ll be me crying again."

The pair got engaged during a cute picnic in Sweden and in an Instagram post of his own at the time, Oliver – who is better known by his surname, Proudlock – wrote: "SHE SAID YES!!! SHE IS MAKING AN HONEST MAN OF ME. GREATEST MOMENT OF MY LIFE."
