Jonny Mitchell has announced he is engaged to his girlfriend of 10 months, Danielle Zarb-Cousin.
The Love Island star popped the question while the couple were on holiday in Switzerland at the beginning of this week.
Jonny and Danielle, a model, both shared the same image on their respective Instagram accounts, which shows them sitting in a hot tub together in front of the picturesque Swiss mountains and a lake.
In Jonny’s caption, he writes lovingly about his decision to propose, sharing with fans: ‘It sounds clichè, but I knew from the first time I met this girl that I was going to marry her.
‘I probably would’ve proposed to her within the first month of knowing her if it wasn’t totally weird!
‘She’s basically the girl version of me and gets me in every way humanly possible.. She’s a beautiful, caring soul inside and out’
Jonny, who appeared on the popular ITV dating show in 2017, ended the post with: ‘She’s there for me through thick and thin and puts up with all my crap… and now she’s my fiancée and I couldn’t be happier.’
The couple started dating in February, and they’ve been posting adorable pictures on Instagram ever since.
Danielle also took to Instagram to announce their exciting news, posting the same photo as Jonny and writing:
‘We’re engaged!! I get to marry my best friend.
‘I’d choose you; in a hundred lifetimes, in a hundred worlds, in any version of reality, I’d find you and I’d choose you’
She went on to describe the events of the blissful morning of the proposal, revealing:
‘Wow what a magical day. After an early morning and long drive we arrived at a beautiful hotel in the mountains in Switzerland .. and then my best friend proposed to me’
With a wedding to plan, 2019 is set to be a busy year for these two – a hearty Christmassy congrats to the happy couple!!
