They've still yet to confirm they're engaged but TOWIE's Lucy Mecklenburgh gave the biggest hint yet that boyfriend Mario Falcone had indeed got down on bended knee - just look at the size of that sparkler!

Lucy gave us a glimpse of the ring - rumoured to have set Mario back a whopping £25,000 - as she and her other half played with their dog Bentley on the balcony of their Essex home.

According to reports, Mario popped the question during the recent cast trip to Marbella to film a summer special of The Only Way Is Essex.

He was reported to have chosen a romantic moonlit boat ride for the occasion.

However, there has been no comment from either of them about their engagement since Marbs, so we're guessing we'll either have to wait until the TOWIE special airs on Wednesday, or for an exclusive magazine deal to hit the shelves...
