Andy's proposal comes after he surprised Billi with a trip to Rome for her 26th birthday. Flying in their own private jet on Saturday (1 November), Billi shared another photo before taking off, claiming their mini break was the "best surprise ever".

Until Andy popped out a ring, that is!

Before the 25-year-old got down on one knee, he and Billi enjoyed a day out at the Vatican before heading out for dinner, overlooking the Colosseum.

And, making sure he thought of everything, Andy even brought Billi a designer outfit including a dress, bag and pair of Jimmy Choos for the evening.

Lucky thing!

Posting a photo of her goodies for her followers, Billi said: "The Boy thought of everything - Even brought me an outfit to wear tonight! #dress #shoes #bag."

The couple began dating at the start of this year after meeting through mutual friends. In April, four months into their relationship, Billi admitted she and Andy were "very happy" together, revealing she was already thinking that marriage and children would be on the cards for the pair.

Luckily for her, her other half was clearly thinking the same thing and now they are set to wed!

Since announcing their engagement, the couple have been inundated with congratulatory messages. Billi's BFF and former TOWIE star Cara Kilbey was first to congratulate her pal and Andy.

Taking to Instagram, she said: "Congratulations to These Two Special People @billimucklow @andytcarroll on their engagement. #Rome am so happy for you both xxxx"

While Celebrity Big Brother star Lauren Goodger tweeted Billi: "Congratulations @BilliMucklow and @AndyTCarroll just seen the ring on @giorgiemucklow FaceTime wow!! So happy for you both. Lots of love."
