Ant McPartlin has broken his silence on how he proposed to his wife-to-be, Anne-Marie Corbett, in a new interview, and it sounds so sweet!
Chatting to Digital Spy magazine, the presenter talked about getting down on one knee over Christmas 2020. He explained: "It was a lovely way to end the year. I’m a romantic at heart. You know, there were flowers, and afternoon tea in front of the Christmas tree. Lovely. It was lovely."

The star also opened up about whether he would have his best pal, Declan Donnelly, as his best man, revealing that he took on the important role at his first wedding to his ex-wife, Lisa Armstrong.
He said: "He [Dec] was very good last time. He has been my best man. I’ve been his best man. But I suppose it depends on what kind of wedding we have. There have been no plans." Dec chimed in, joking: "I think it’s between me and the dog!"
Ant popped the question on Christmas Eve
The Saturday Night Takeaway star's publicist Simon Jones confirmed the happy news in early January, even going so far as to say that the setting was "very romantic". In a statement given to the Liverpool Echo, he said: "Ant and Amzie are delighted to announce their engagement. The proposal took place on Christmas Eve at home in a very romantic setting.

Ant and Anne-Marie have often been spotted together, along with Anne-Marie's two children, since they began dating in 2018. The Geordie star is notoriously private when it comes to his home life, however, earlier in December did make a rare comment about his and Anne-Marie's relationship.
Speaking during the grand finale of I'm a Celeb, Ant was asked by finalist Jordan North where his "happy place" was, to which Ant sweetly replied: "At home with my girlfriend and the kids." Jordan said back, "Oh, that's lovely!"
