Following their announcement, the couple appeared on Loose Women where Brianne defended herself against criticism over their quick engagement. After panellist Denise Welch mentioned the criticism that Brianne has faced due to her previous relationships with her Dancing on Ice partners, Matt Lapinskas, Sam Attwater, and Danny Young, Brianne replied: "Yeah, I mean, it's been my life for ten years so, where, how am I supposed to meet anybody else?" The 39-year-old continued: "But, we're going back ten years ago, when there was other partners, but I've been on my own for four years, I'm a single mum, I wasn't looking for love at all."

Brianne also revealed she knew she was going to end up with Kevin from the moment she first saw him. She explained: "I was coming through the tunnel at the stadium and it was a weird moment because I hadn't met him and in my head, I had these little voices going, 'I'm going to marry this guy. I'm going to marry him.'" Kevin echoed the love at first sight moment and stated that he knew he loved Brianne straight away. "It happened very quickly. I think we both knew within, it was instant." He continued: "When you know, you know. It is very early days in the relationship but we honestly feel, I feel as if I've known Bri all my life." How sweet!
The couple announced their engagement last week with a sweet Instagram post showing the moment Kevin got down on one knee. The 43-year-old can be seen serenading his girlfriend before dropping down and asking Brianne to be his wife. "He couldn't have been more perfect," she captioned the footage. "I love you @kdkilbane77 02.04.2020."
