Made In Chelsea star Oliver Proudlock has had the "best year of his life" dating model girlfriend Emma Louise Connolly.

Today marks the couple's first anniversary as Proudlock and Emma have now been an item for officially 12 months, and to mark the occasion, the reality star took to Instagram to gush about his leading lady.


Sharing a collage of photos of himself and Emma together, Proudlock proved to fans just how smitten he is as he paid tribute to his girlfriend.

He said: "A year ago today I met my soulmate, the most beautiful person inside and out. It's safe to say it has been the best year of my life. @emmalouiseconnolly I love you to the moon and back, and cannot wait for the times ahead."

Cute, right?

Proudlock and Emma first went public with their romance in November last year, three months after they first got together. Despite viewers believing at the time Proudlock had a thing for his co-star Lucy Watson, he later admitted there was only one girl for him and that was blonde beauty Emma.

Letting the cat out of the bag, the Chelsea boy shared a sweet snap of himself and Emma kissing and that was the very first of a slew of loved-up snaps to hit Proudlock's Instagram. While we love seeing the pair's photo PDAs, we haven't been lucky enough to be introduced to Emma onscreen.

Ahead of Made In Chelsea's ninth series, Proudlock told Reveal his and Emma's romance was "going really well", but he had no intentions of putting their relationship on camera.

He exclusively told us: "You know what, it's a very similar scenario to Stevie," he said. "Her career and the agency she's with, they've got a plan for her. It unfortunately doesn't involve Made In Chelsea."

And it seems things are getting oh-so-serious between the pair, with Proudlock hinting he may even be hanging up his Made In Chelsea boots soon.

The star is currently holidaying in Ibiza with Emma and put together his guide on the White Isle for Reveal readers. In it, he writes: "I might be at home in Ibiza, but fear not, I will be returning to Made In Chelsea. I still love the show. But there will be a point where I move on completely – after all, I've been doing the show for four years."

Fingers crossed he won't be going for a while though, as we're not sure Stevie Johnson and Jamie Laing would be able to cope with no more Pruders!
