Marcel Somerville is planning to propose to Gabby Allen and has started saving for the ring
Marcel Somerville is saving up for an engagement ring.
The Blazin' Squad hunk fell head over heels in love with his girlfriend Gabby Allen after they met in the 'Love Island' villa over the summer and, although they're keen to take their relationship slowly, they have spoken about tying the knot in the near future.
Gabby told The Sun Online: "If Marcel was to propose to me I'd say yes but for us it's all about pace and there isn't any rush right now but he said that he's saving for a ring."
And the 25-year-old fitness instructor hopes that when her man does eventually get down on one knee that he does something spectacular.
She explained: "That'd [a proposal will] be nice, I've never been proposed to before so I hope he's going to pull something out of the bag."
And it doesn't look like it will be too long before the pair do take their relationship to the next level as they've just moved into a flat together in Bethnal Green, East London.
The blonde bombshell said recently: "This weekend I moved all my stuff in. It's in Bethnal Green. Basically I moved out of my flat and we were looking for something in the meantime because we want to buy something later on this year, but Marcel was like 'Why don't you move into mine?' But it's in Chingford. And I've lived on my own for eight years, and at the moment his mum lives with him and I still like having my freedom. I wouldn't be able to go out and get drunk and be back too late.
"So I was like, 'I'm going to get somewhere in the meantime' and he was like, 'Well, why don't I get somewhere with you then?' "
And, although she didn't want to live with Gabby's mother, Gabby really loves Marcel's family and can now see why he's so gentle and down-to-earth.
She explained: "There is no wonder he is the way he is because they are so lovely. So passive, everything is just great. Anything that happens it's never that bad. So I need to learn something from them. I need to take a leaf out of their book. They're just great."
