Suzanne Shaw has got engaged.
The former 'Dancing on Ice' contestant and Hear'Say singer has announced she is to tie the knot with sports consultant Sam Greenfield after a year of dating.
She gushed to HELLO! magazine: "He is everything I've ever wanted in a man - strong, protective, sensible, intelligent, affectionate, good-looking. He ticks all the boxes. I now understand the term 'my other half'."
The 32-year-old star - who has a nine-year-old son Corey with ex-boyfriend Darren Day - began dating Sam after splitting from her ex-husband Jason King in 2012 and feels she is finally ready to love again.
She said: "Some may say a year is not long, but I was ready. Because we were friends first, it didn't seem like so much of a gamble. The trust was already there. I had been secretly ticking off boxes along the way so when we got together, it felt right to go for it."
Sam popped the question to Suzanne earlier this month while they were enjoying a holiday in Dubai.
He said: "On the third day we sat on our balcony gazing out at this incredible view of the ocean. We felt we were on top of the world and thought, 'Let's get engaged here and now.' The moment happened quite naturally, which was nice as there was no pressure for it to be a certain way.
"The next day we hit the Gold and Diamond Park [jewellery market] and, five hours and 200 hours and 200 rings later, she found the one she wanted."
