Smitten couple Kevin Kilbane and Brianne Delcourt reportedly were always locking lips backstage on the Dancing On Ice set after falling in love with each other when they were partnered on the show from October.
The ex footballer, 42, popped the question to skating pro Brianne, 39, on tuesday after being swept up in a four-month whirlwind romance which started after they were first partnered for the ITV talent show.
Speaking about the newly-engaged duo, Dancing On Ice's Associate Creative Director told The Sun that both Kevin and Brianne are "really in love with each other" after watching them on set.
The comments about the couple's loved-up display backstage comes just a day after the MOTD pundit pulled out all the stops on his dazzling engagement as a waiter presented Brianne with a ring and a dessert in a flashy fashion.
Speaking to The Sun Online, he said: "They're really loved up the both of them. They're always having a cheeky snog backstage, which is gorgeous to see.
"When I see them two together you can see it's real. They really are in love with each other, and they're just having a great time together.
"They've both fallen head over heels, when it's right it's right."
While the lovebirds were eliminated from the Dancing on Ice competition, former West Bromwich Albion player Kevin didn't let it dampen the mood as he asked Brianne to marry him.
The former Everton footballer serenaded his love and then he got down on one knee to pop the question to his new girlfriend at a swanky restaurant.
Accompanied with the footage, Brianne shared the romantic moment to her Instagram account alongside the caption: "He couldn’t have been more perfect ~ I love you @kdkilbane77. 02.04.2020."
She also added: "He was worth the wait. Kev, you’ve made me the happiest girl in the world. You’re my fairytale ending."
It comes just days after the sports star made a public declaration of his love to Brianne on Today FM's Dermot & Dave show.
Months into their romance, Kevin gushed about the beauty of the couple falling in love naturally with one another after being partnered up for Dancing on Ice.
He said: "It was me, I made the first move, and I got a custard pie to start with. I asked her out and she said no and then it just happened."
He continued to gush over their blossoming romance as he added: "I genuinely do feel blessed because we were both single going into it and that was the beauty of it all… It just happened, it was just natural. It's not been anything forced, we've fallen in love and that's it."
"Of course we've had fun going through it all but I think once feelings start to come into play and you start to discuss futures, that's when it becomes very real. The whole experience has been great but it was great because I met Brianne."
Kevin was previously married to Laura and they have two daughters together but their marriage crumbled in 2011 after 12 years together.
Brianne has daughter Gracie Isabella from a previous relationship.
*Dancing On Ice continues Sunday at 6pm on ITV
