I'm A Celebrity's Joel Dommett announced his engagement to model Hannah Cooper on Wednesday evening, and revealed that he had proposed thanks to a video posted to his Instagram account...

The comedian, who came second to Gogglebox's Scarlett Moffatt in the 2016 series despite a series of witty one-liners that won over viewers, left the clip without a caption. Instead he just tagged his now fiancée in the post - surely that wasn't the actual proposal though, right Joel?

One of the co-hosts on this year's I'm A Celebrity Extra Camp, Joel has previously revealed how their romance first started on Instagram, so it seems pretty fitting that he'd share the news on the same social media site too.

And talking about Hannah on Loose Women, Joel told the panel: "We met on Instagram. She sent me a cat emoji with the heart eyes.

"That is the modern equivalent of the old phrase 'you had me at hello', now it's 'you had me at cat emoji'."

The couple have just celebrated their one-year anniversary together, and Joel shared a gushing (if pretty funny) post dedicated to his other half in honour of the milestone:

"Happy one year anniversary to @hannah_cooper_ - I fell in love with you when I realised that under your stupidly pretty face you are horrifically uncool. Thanks for being ace," posted Joel.

They weren't short of well-wishers following the announcement - the comedian's Instagram followers rushed to congratulate the couple on their engagement shortly after the vid was posted.

One wrote: "YES what a difference a year makes! So happy for you. Amazing news xxxxx."

"Im sorry but this is the funniest way of telling people you're engaged [sic]," said a second.

Meanwhile, one fan just couldn't contain their excitement, opting for a cheery: "YAAAAA GO JOEL & HANNAH."

Congratulations to Joel and Hannah, then - although next they'll need to answer the question everyone will be asking. Will the wedding take place in the I'm A Celebrity jungle?

Actually, scratch that. Just thought about what'd be served up for guests to eat. Eurgh.
