Following their exciting engagement, a friend of the TV star told The Sun: “Ant has been planning this for some time – but wanted to make sure the moment was right.

"2020 has been a pretty torrid year for everybody, and this is the happy news that all their friends and family have been waiting for.

"Both Amzie and Ant adore Christmas, and get really into it every year, so Ant decided to pop the question on Christmas Eve," the insider explained.

  • Declan Donnelly ‘thrilled’ for Ant McPartlin and Anne-Marie Corbett who ‘will wait to marry in 2022’

"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."

The source went on to explain that because of the ongoing pandemic, a wedding in 2021 is looking unlikely to happen.

"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," they concluded.
