Businessman Simon popped the question last month, surprising Myleene with an elaborate proposal on the fifth anniversary of their first date. He got down on one knee in the couple's garden shed after transforming it into a replica of the bar where they'd met on a blind date.

Sparing no detail, he even borrowed the same table and chairs they'd sat on at Little House private members' club in London's Mayfair, which he decked with candles, table mats and glassware, decorating the shed walls with framed photos and filling the garden with fairy lights.
