Programme 3

In a circus with a difference one man takes the plunge of a lifetime with the help of fairy godmother Pamela Flood.

Nigel Oxman adds a little extra 'sparkle' to the circus when he swoops in to give girlfriend Heather and their 2 children the surprise of their lives!

Having attempted to propose more than once before, Nigel Oxman is determined to get it right this time around.

Keen to do something that involves their 2 children, Samantha and Jake; and because Heather is a huge fan of the circus, Nigel decides that this is the place to propose.

Ireland's oldest circus, Fossett's, agree to come on board to help make Nigel's dream of sweeping Heather off her feet a reality.

In the run-up to the proposal, Nigel trains on the silks - but will Heather see the bruises?

The big day arrives and Heather and the kids come to Dublin to visit friend Fiona and go to the show. Little do they know the surprise that awaits them just before the interval!

When Nigel's turn comes, Samantha and Jake are enthralled to see this masked man flying through the air. Heather seems slightly less impressed. Does she guess it's Nigel?

As the act ends, Ring-mistress Marion Fossett calls on a volunteer from the audience. As Heather is closest, she is chosen.

As she steps into the ring, the masked man steps forward and takes off his mask.

Telling her how much he loves her, Nigel gets down on one knee and proposes, to tears from Heather, shock from the kids and cheers from the crowd.
