Damian pops the question to fellow thesp Helen

Damian Lewis' legions of female fans will be bitterly disappointed. Showbiz' sexiest male redhead is set to tie the knot with North Square star Helen McCrory.

The handsome actor - who appeared in the Tom Hanks-produced TV drama Band Of Brothers - asked for his sweetheart's hand in a Valentine's weekend proposal, and friends say she didn't hesitate to accept. "Helen is a lovely person - and a brilliant actress," enthused one pal. "We often say she is a Dame in the making."

Her 35-year-old beau has been something of a reluctant heart-throb since starring in the 2002 remake of The Forsyte Saga, when he was somewhat baffled by the adoring missives he received from admirers.

But despite the obvious interest from the fairer sex, Damian has been dating the talented thespian since their meeting during a theatre production in Islington three years ago. And oblivious to the recent clarion call made by bosom pal Sienna Miller for girls to stay single - she and Helen shared the stage in As You Like It - the winsome brunette now seems quite content to set the seal on her romance.
