Candice Brown and her long-term partner Liam Macaulay are engaged and are hoping to wed soon
Candice Brown is engaged.
The 'Great British Bake Off' champion is set to tie the knot with her long-term partner Liam Macaulay - who she's been with since 2002 - after he got down on one knee and popped the question in a car park - where they had their first date - in Bedfordshire.
Speaking to HELLO! magazine, the brunette beauty said: "I get emotional because it's been such an amazing year. I feel very lucky. I've had such incredible opportunities - 'GBBO' opened so many doors - and to top it off he puts a ring on it.
"He reached into the glove compartment, got out the ring, got down on one knee and said: 'I love you, you are my world. Will you marry me?' "
Liam added: "So I proposed in a car park. But it really meant something to us. Candice just cried for five minutes before she could say: 'Yes!' "
And, although the 32-year-old beauty has been waiting a long time for this engagement, she and Liam are hoping to get hitched as soon as possible and are even considering getting wed abroad because they want the ceremony to be outside.
Candice explained: "Or in the countryside. Because of Liam's job, a wedding outdoors would be pretty special to us ... Of course I would invite the 'GBBO' contestants. They have become 11 good friends. We have a WhatsApp group and speak nearly every day. We clicked so well in the tent - we laughed so much - and it just continued."
And once they're engaged, Candice and Liam would like to start trying for babies.
Asked if she wants a child, the former teacher said: "Oh gosh, yes, definitely."
Liam added: "A five-a-side football team."
Candice interjected: "Maybe two of them!"
