Vicky Pattison has revealed that she’s engaged to boyfriend John Noble.
The former Geordie Shore star, 29, confirmed the happy news to OK! magazine, adding that she ‘couldn’t believe it’ when John popped the question.
‘I was spending a few days at John’s house, which is just outside Newcastle and surrounded by lovely countryside. One morning he suggested we take his dog Roxie out for a walk,’ she explained to the title.
‘I was playing with Roxie when she shook her head and got slobber all over my face. When I wiped it away, John was in front of me on one knee.’
John then presented the star with a stunning 3.6-carat marquise-cut diamond ring, which instantly reduced her to tears.
‘I said yes and then I looked at the ring and I was blown away,’ she recalled. ‘It was amazing.’
Vicky added that she’d been totally shocked by the romantic gesture, as it came after a ‘difficult few weeks’ for the couple.
‘I had been really busy with work and couldn’t make it to see him,’ she admitted, even joking that she thought John had been planning to break up with her in the days running up to the proposal!
Speaking during an interview on ITV’s Lorraine back in June, Vicky said of her relationship with John: ‘For years I have struggled with my personal life and finding someone who was supportive of my career and essentially successful in their own right as well.’
‘And finally I have that with John. He’s lovely and caring and strong.’
She told OK! that she’s already been considering ideas for her wedding dress, and hopes to take inspiration from the Royal Family.
‘I like high necks and low backs,’ she said. ‘I loved the wedding dresses that the Duchess of Cambridge and Pippa Matthews wore, so I think I’ll use those as inspiration.’
