We're just two days into 2021 and already we've got lots of super lovely news rolling in. Queer Eye's Jonathan Van Ness has revealed he got married to boyfriend Mark Peacock, while Laura Whitmore confirmed her secret wedding to Iain Stirling. Now, news just in, it's been revealed I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here presenter Ant McPartlin proposed to girlfriend Anne-Marie Corbett on Christmas Eve and Dec Donnelly will be his best man.

Ant's publicist Simon Jones revealed Ant popped the question at home and described the proposal as "very romantic". He said in a statement, "Ant and Amzie are delighted to announce their engagement. The proposal took place on Christmas Eve at home in a very romantic setting."

The pair started dating in 2018 following Ant's split from ex-wife Lisa Armstrong. While he's always been very private when it comes to their relationship, he did give a nod to his cosy home life during the I'm A Celeb final. Runner-up Jordan North asked Ant where his "happy place" is, to which the presenter replied, "At home with my girlfriend and the kids." Cute!

According to The Sun, it sounds like Ant had been planning the proposal for a while, with a friend saying he wanted to "make sure the moment was just right".

They added, "He's a traditionalist, so got down on one knee after first checking with Anne Marie's family that he had their blessing. It was super-romantic, and obviously Anne-Marie said 'yes' straight away.

"Obviously getting engaged in the midst of a pandemic isn't ideal when it comes to planning a wedding... at the moment a summer ceremony is looking extremely unlikely, so it may well be a 2022 affair."

Whenever it is, we're sure it will be wonderful. Congratulations Ant and Anne-Marie!
