Marius proposed to 2010 Strictly Come Dancing winner Kara back in March with a vintage ruby-and-diamond Bavarian engagement ring.

Recalling the day of the proposal Kara said: ‘We were having a lie-in and I had no idea he was planning to propose.

The happy couple first met two years ago after being set up by mutual friends.

Huge congratulations to Kara and Marius!
