Love is in the air on the hilarious geeky US comedy 'The Bang Theory'. Warning: spoiler alert!

The executive producer of the award-winning scientastic sitcom has confirmed that one of the show’s dating couples will be getting engaged.

Bill Prady revealed to America’s TV Guide that someone will propose in an upcoming episode and added that "the couple will probably eventually get married."

Prady refused to confirm who would be involved, but played along with the notion that Sheldon (played by the award-winning Jim Parsons) tying the knot would be the show’s romantic equivalent of splitting the atom. Or something.

"Sheldon feels his one and only true love is science," says Prady, "so this would represent a paradigm shift in our cognitive appreciation of the universe."

The Big Bang Theory returns soon to E4 and Channel 4
