Cheers! Newly ENGAGED Ruth Scott asks ‘Can I do Dry February?’

Well, that's one way to avoid the post-Christmas fear.

2FM host Ruth Scott revealed on Twitter last night that she was postponing a grim alcohol-free January in favour of something a little more exciting – her engagement celebrations.

"Myself & @RobMorganDublin were going to do #DryJanuary #OnTheDry but he only went & proposed on New Year's Eve," she wrote. 

"Can I do DryFeb instead?"

Ruth has been seeing Merrion Hotel accountant Rob Morgan for the last two years, and admitted recently that the long wait for Mr Right was more than worth it.

"People always say you will meet someone when you least expect it, and I was ‘least expecting it’ for twelve years, because I was single for that long," she said in a recent interview with the Irish Independent.

"Rob is brilliant and so encouraging, and while it’s great to be comfortable on your own, it is also really nice to have someone who has your back."

The newly-engaged pair met back in 2013 at a Father Ted quiz night in Dublin, a coincidence which no doubt holds some significance for Rob as he is the son of the late Father Ted actor Dermot Morgan.

"As soon as I saw Rob, I thought he was quite hot," Ruth confessed.

"We went for many coffees at first, because I was so out of practice at dating, but you know, I don’t give a damn about being single for twelve years, as it was worth it to meet Rob."

Congrats to Ruth and Rob!
