The Only Way is Essex star Gemma Collins got engaged on Christmas Day after her boyfriend Rami Hawash hid an engagement ring in the Christmas pudding!

The 32-year-old reality TV star revealed the news to her followers on Twitter on St Stephen's Day, writing: ''Very excited to announce that I got engaged yesterday I am very very happy @RamTech_ I love you best Xmas pudding x. (sic)''

The TV star has had her ups and downs and took to the micro-blogging site to vent her frustrations earlier this year.

Collins wrote: ''Be careful girls when a man uses you to gain fame and money and then when they can't get it they turn.

''I'm usually a smart girl I have been used for months in order for someone to gain fame I saw it in the end.''

She revealed in the final episode of the last series that she had dumped Rami because he told her she wasn't sexy.

She called his comment ''the final straw'', but the couple now appear to have worked through their problems.
