Chris and Tony announced their engagement in October 2015, after Tony popped the question at the top of the Eiffel Tower in Paris.

'It's official............I can't sing Beyoncé anymore thanks to @Tony_Butland' Chris quipped at the time, sharing a snap of his impressive diamond engagement ring with his followers.

In a previous interview, he also addressed the confusion that some Gogglebox viewers had faced after thinking that he and co-star Stephen were actually a couple.

'We were friends years ago, and then we evolved into sort of more like a relationship, so we were actually seeing each other when I got the opportunity of going on Gogglebox. So that's how Stephen and I got on it,' he explained.

'We were actually a couple for the first series! But we decided that we're better as friends. So second series, we went into it as friends, but I think a lot of followers that watched the first series continued to think that we were a couple.'
