Big Brother stars Hughie Maughan and Ryan Ruckledge have finally CONFIRMED that they are engaged.

It's probably not a huge surprise to fans as the couple had dropped *plenty* of hints that they are set to wed via Twitter, but it's still pretty exciting!

Hughie tweeted: "FINALLY me and ryan can announce that we are officially ENGAGED! We are so happy and everythin feels right, huge hi five 2 the doubters (sic)."

Ryan, meanwhile, told fans on his own Twitter page that he is "so happy."

He tweeted: "So the cats out the bag me and @hughie_maughan are officially engaged! So happy and can't wait for the future #biggaygypsywedding??"

Of course, the congratulations came flooding in for the pair. One fan commented: "Best news ever! Congratulations to you both. Wishing you so much love, fun & joy together." While another added: "Love you two together. U make a beautiful partnership, massive congrats & have an amazing future as Mr&Mr."

Hughie and Ryan have finally gone public with their engagement, a week after fueling speculation that a proposal had happened. Ryan had tweeted: "I do," and added a string of emojis alongside it including a church, a couple, several brides and a ring, while Hughie gushed: "Having a happy day. Happy, happy, happy."

When Reveal shared an article on Twitter about the rumours, Ryan responded with three emojis: one of a couple, one of a heart-eyed emoji and another blowing a kiss.

Hughie then addressed those who had ever doubted his romance with Ryan and insisted the pair were definitely not a showmance. He said: "Today's a day I'll remember for a long time probably one of the best days of my life... Two fingers to the doubters in the past#aintnoshowmance."

The duo struck up a romance while starring on Big Brother's seventeenth series. They fell for each other in the house, and on his exit, Ryan declared his love for Hughie by having his name tattooed onto his chest. While Hughie admitted he wasn't sure if he'd return the favour, he claimed that Ryan's tattoo was the "best present" he had ever received.

Since then, things have gone from strength to strength for Ryan and Hughie and now, it looks like they have a wedding to plan.
