Undateables Viewers In Tears Over Daniel Wakeford's Romantic Proposal
Almost a year after Daniel Wakeford met Lily Taylor on Channel 4 show The Undateables the pair are engaged and the proposal melted viewers' hearts all over again.
In a festive special, which aired last night, Daniel popped the question to an ecstatic Lily with the help of a choir as he sang 'All I Want For Christmas Is You' before dropping down on one knee.
Musician Daniel has autism, difficulties with his speech and struggles with understanding other people, but as a teenager the now 30-year-old found that he was able to overcome these through the power of songwriting. It only seems natural that music was involved in his all-important question.
In the famous initial meeting episode of The Undateables, he went on a date with Lily, and wooed her with a rendition of his song 'The Black of Lonely'.
Viewers loved watching Daniel serenade his partner before popping the question. One said: "I honestly don't know if there's a cuter human being than Daniel on this planet".
Another added: "#Undateables has me in TEARS. That proposal was so beautiful Good lad Daniel!!!"
With a third commenting: "Daniel & Lily on the #Undateables. With all the absolute shithousery going on in the world and this country, that's the kind of stuff you want to watch at Christmas."
After the big proposal, Daniel shouted: "I did it! We love each other. I'm feeling very excited. What's the best feeling in the world? Love."
Lily then says: "I'm so very happy Daniel proposed. We're getting married! I love him very much."
Their families watched the romantic scenes at Brighton Bandstand - Lily's favourite spot in their home town.
Lily's mum Karen, 53, said: "We absolutely sobbed our socks off with joy. She has won the love lottery. Daniel is perfect for her. They really understand each other."
Daniel's dad Barry, 69, a retired hairstylist, said: "When he found Lily, all his Christmases came at once."
Congratulations, guys. We can't wait for the wedding.
