Rylan Clark Set To Marry Boyfriend Dan Neal Following Proposal In Paris

We're off to buy a new hat! Rylan Clark is set to walk down the aisle after his boyfriend Dan Neal popped the question during a trip to Paris.

And who said romance was dead, eh?

The 'X Factor' star and former police officer are said to be 'thrilled' after Dan got down on one knee and popped the question at the weekend.

A friend of the TV presenter told the Daily Star: "Rylan and Dan have always known marriage was on the cards. So being in the French capital, you might think Rylan saw it coming.

"However it still took him completely by surprise. And there was never any question about what his answer might be.

"Rylan can't wait to marry Dan. They're just thrilled it’s official and they can get started with the best part – planning!"

The 'This Morning' presenter met Dan in 2013 when he appeared on Channel 5 spin-off show Big Brother’s Bit On The Side, which Rylan co-hosted.

The 25-year-old has previously spoken about his dream wedding and his hopes to have children, saying: "The wedding would be three days in the middle of nowhere, in a beautiful manor house.

"Just because I’m gay doesn't mean I can't settle down and have kids."

Congrats to them both!
