Dubliner Seán Gibson dives headfirst into the proposal of a lifetime.
Dubliner Seán Gibson wants to prove to his girlfriend Cliodna just what lengths he is prepared to go to for her, by doing the one thing that scares him the most - jumping out of a plane. As his unsuspecting girlfriend is having lunch, Seán 'drops in' to ask her to marry him.
Seán and Cliodna have been together now for 5 years and have a beautiful daughter together.
Seán thinks it's time to make an even greater commitment and so the wheels are put in motion to get him geared up to 'take the leap'!
First up, it's off to Carlingford Adventure Centre to address his fear of heights by attempting the high ropes. Next, it's to the airfield in Edenderry for his big challenge - a skydive from 13,000 feet.
On the proposal day, an oblivious Cliodna and her sister Tara are being pampered in Killashee house, before being choppered to a mystery location for lunch.
Arriving inexplicably in what appears to be a large field, albeit with a fancy table, a butler and silver service; the girls are shown to their seats to wait for dessert!
Little does Cliodna expect what follows!
As the girls are being served champagne a shape is coming towards them. Is it a bird? Is it a plane? Is it a boyfriend wanting to propose?
As he lands, Cliodna realises who it is...
Taking a red rose and the engagement ring from his jumpsuit and getting down on one knee, Seán pops the question...
