Radio 1 DJ Scott Mills has announced he's engaged to his partner Sam Vaughan after four years.

Radio 1 DJ Scott Mills and his partner Sam Vaughan are engaged to be married (opens in new tab).

Scott, who is understood to have been dating Sam - a fellow radio presenter for Cardiff-based Nation Radio - since 2017, met through mutual friends.

The former Strictly Come Dancing (opens in new tab) star cheered Sam on while he took part in a charity 10k run and they both spent the early days of their relationship "travelling across the country to see each other when they can".

At the time, a source told The Sun, "Scott has always had a thing for the Welsh and they hit it off after being introduced by mutual pals after he quietly split from Brad.

"They have been dating properly for about three months and bonded over their jobs and their love for running."

And fast forward four years and Scott is so smitten that he confirmed he'd made a u-turn on marriage.

Scott announced his happy news on Twitter and Instagram with fans, he tweeted a snap taken from the proposal and captioned it, 'After 4 years together I’m delighted to say we got engaged at the weekend.

'As @SamVaughan knows, I always said I didn’t think I would ever get married. But then I met you Sam. You make me laugh every single day, you support me in so many ways and I adore everything about you.'

The pair spent the weekend at luxury shepherd's huts before Scott's proposal took place.

Sam shared a heartfelt post on his Instagram and revealed the engagement ring Scott had proposed to him with.
