Former Coronation Street star Oliver Mellor is engaged to glamour model girlfriend Rhian Sugden.

The actor, who played Dr. Matt Carter in the ITV soap, publicly proposed to ex-Celebrity Big Brother housemate Rhian in front of an audience of 1,000 at his Agatha Christie theatre show in Manchester on Sunday evening (23 November).

According to onlookers, Oliver leapt off the stage towards the end of the evening, going over to where Rhian was sitting and getting down on one knee to pop the question.

And she said yes!

Oliver later tweeted: "I have never been so happy."

Meanwhile, Rhian uploaded a sweet picture of the couple post-engagement - and flashing her gorgeous ring! and said: "So this just happened! I am engaged! Happiest person ever!"

Unfortunately for the couple, the ring was a tad too large so Oliver's said he will be rushing back to the jewellery store to have it resized.

Oliver will return to screens next year in new ITV show Get Your Act Together, which challenges stars to learn a variety of jaw-dropping circus moves.
