TV presenter Ant McPartlin has become engaged to his girlfriend Anne-Marie Corbett following a "romantic" Christmas Eve proposal. 

The star's publicist Simon Jones confirmed the news in a statement. He said: "Ant and Amzie are delighted to announce their engagement. The proposal took place on Christmas Eve at home in a very romantic setting."

The pair have reportedly been in a relationship since 2018, following the McPartlin's separation from Lisa Armstrong, his wife of 11 years.

Corbett has two daughters from her relationship with ex-husband Scott Corbett.

McPartlin described Corbett as his "rock" after she supported him following his drink-driving arrest and stay in rehab.

He stepped back from the spotlight after crashing his car in March 2018 while more than twice the alcohol limit, before entering rehab.

In January 2019, McPartlin made a return to his TV duties alongside Donnelly for the Britain's Got Talent auditions.

News of McPartlin's engagement comes shortly after he and Donnelly wrapped the latest series of I'm A Celebrity, which was filmed at Gwrych Castle in North Wales due to Covid-19.
