Corrie fitty Oliver Mellor has proposed to his glamour model girlfriend, Rhian Sugden, by popping the question mid-pantomime.
The former soap star, who’s currently starring in Black Coffee at the Manchester Opera House, jumped off the stage and dropped to one knee in front of Rhian after his performance on Saturday.
According to a witness, Oliver brought out a massive diamond ring and simply asked, “will you marry me?”, before Rhian screamed, “yes!”, before the room erupted in applause.
Oliver, 33, who played steamy Dr. Matt Carter in Corrie, told The Sun: “I’m just so glad she said yes. But I’ll be rushing back to the jewellers – the ring’s far too big.”
It didn’t take long before the tears started flowing, with Rhian admitting: “I started blubbing like a baby. He’s definitely the one for me, even if he did get a ring the size of a hula hoop.”
The pair took to Twitter to share the news, with Rhian sharing a snap of them kissing and adding: “So this just happened!! I am engaged!!! happiest person ever!! [sic]“
Oliver and Rhian have been dating for a year following his split from Kym Marsh, with whom he indulged in a five-month affair with while she was still married to Jamie Lomas.
Meanwhile, 28-year-old former Celebrity Big Brother star, Rhian, isn’t entirely free from dramz either after she was accused of sexting Vernon Kay back in 2010.
She later admitted: “We spoke as friends. We were just friends – but we spoke too much. I never sent a sex text. I never sold a story. We were from the same area and I was in with his family and I knew his brother.”
But whatevs, all’s well that ends well, eh?
