Declan Donnelly is engaged to Ali Astall.
The 'I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here' host proposed to his TV manager girlfriend Ali Astall in Australia over the weekend.
Dec - who, alongside his best friend Anthony McPartlin, is one half of the presenting duo Ant and Dec - popped the question ahead of filming for the 14th season of 'I'm A Celeb', which stars Gemma Collins, Melanie Sykes and Jimmy Bullard.
The 39-year-old has been in a relationship with Ali, 35, for 18 months and the beautiful blonde moved into Dec's luxurious west London home at the beginning of 2014.
Ali has managed the careers of Ant and Dec for more than 10 years before she became romantically involved with the star last spring.
Speaking about their relationship, a source told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "Dec and Ali are completely besotted with each other.
"They have been best friends for a long time.
"Dec soon realised that the he'd met the girl he wanted to spend the rest of his life with and felt ready to settle down.
"Friends and family are delighted and see that they're taking the next step as they're perfect for each other."
'I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here' will air at 9pm on ITV on Sunday, November 16.
