Presenter shares wonderful engagement news


Congratulations are in order today for presenter and columnist Katie Piper, who announced this morning that she is engaged to her long-term partner James.

The star took to her social media to share her wonderful news, tweeting: “So excited to tell you all….I became someone’s fiancée last night! I’m engaged to be married.”

The 31-year-old and James have been together for almost three years, and are parents to nine-month-old daughter Belle Elizabeth.

It seems that Katie had absolutely no idea that James was preparing to propose last night, having posted a snap of the setting for a romantic meal at home on her Instagram page.

“Pretending we are going out for dinner! Cooking 3 course meal, dressed in our best clothes – all taking place at our kitchen table!” she wrote, adding, “Parents’ night in/ out.”

Katie first came into the public eye after sharing the tragic story of her acid attack in the Channel 4 documentary, Katie: My Beautiful Face.

She has since gone on to set up her own charity, the Katie Piper Foundation, and has written a best-selling autobiography.

Huge congratulations to the couple on their wonderful news.
