Vincent's Christmas Day proposal

Salisbury Journal: Vincent Simone popped the question on Christmas Day Vincent Simone popped the question on Christmas Day

Former Strictly Come Dancing star Vincent Simone is getting ready to waltz down the aisle after proposing to his girlfriend on Christmas Day.

The dancer said popping the question to Susan Duggan - with whom he has two children - was "emotional".

He told Hello! Magazine: "I went with my heart on the spur of the moment on Christmas morning and gave her a Christmas card in which I wrote: 'Will you marry me?'

"I am a bit of a showman and had hoped to do something spectacular but both Susan and myself have travelled and lived exciting lives so I thought perhaps the most surprising gesture of all would be to do something understated in our cosy home on Christmas Day.

"Whilst she was reading the card, I did a pirouette and presented her with the ring on bended knee. I was quite emotional."

Vincent said his appearance in the jungle on I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! convinced him to propose.

He said: "I think going into the jungle made me realise how important our life together is to me.

"Going back to basics made me appreciate how full my life is and how lucky I am. We only have one chance in this life, and I want to make it the best I can."

Susan told the magazine that Vincent was interested in organising the big day.

She said: "Vincent is very theatrical and will want to make a big production of it. I have already told him that if he had his way, he would be the bride!"
