“I kept it very quiet, I’ll have you know! “ she continued, adding, “so, I celebrated with them a long time ago”.

She revealed that she had no idea that Anna was set to engaged, explaining, “I didn’t know he was going to propose, but I saw the ring one day.

“I went into her room to work on lines,” she continued, “and then I was like, "What is that ring on your finger?" … I think she was waiting for everyone to notice. "Oh, that’s it," and then … yeah, it was fun”.

Anna fuelled engagement rumours back in November when she was seen out and about with a diamond ring on her left hand ring finger.

And now Allison has confirmed that she has in fact been for a while.
