Tommy Mallet would marry on TV
Tommy Mallet has admitted he wouldn't mind getting hitched on national television but he wouldn't propose
Tommy Mallet would get married on television.
The 'Only Way is Essex' hunk has admitted he's willing to tie the knot with his girlfriend Georgia Kousoulou on a reality TV show - just like his parents did in 1999 - but he's adamant he'll never get down on one knee and pop the question in front of the cameras.
He explained: "I don't want to propose on the show but I'll throw an engagement party. It'll be an Irish-Greek wedding. My family is Irish and hers in Greek. My mum and dad got married on telly - on a BBC show called 'Love Town' in 1999. They ran away to Gretna Green and got married, but my mum turned up with a bus load of people from Ireland.
"Yeah [I'll get married on TV]. Just not the engagement because that's so much more personal. I'm not just getting married to Georgia for a scene on the show like everyone else does. My family ain't bothered about fame - it's the last thing they want. The marriage just happened at the right time. They won't come on 'TOWIE' or anything."
The strawberry-blonde star may be yet to propose to Georgia, whom he has been dating for over a year, but he's already decided that their engagement party will be lavish and very expensive.
He told NOW! magazine: "If I've got it, I spend it. I was thinking I'd like to do a party and hire a private jet out to Santorini or something - with a quick stop off in Ibiza for all our pals. Georgia's friends date my friends, so it would be good. Her old man will be paying for the wedding, anyway!"
