Rylan Clark announces his engagement to boyfriend

Rylan Clark has announced that he's engaged to his boyfriend Dan Neal.

The former X Factor contestant-turned-TV presenter told fans the happy news on Twitter.

He shared a picture of himself and Dan smiling, with the words "We're engaged x" along the bottom.

And he said: "Pleased to say we're engaged. Thank you for all your lovely messages. Myself and @DanNealOfficial are very happy xxx."

Rylan - who hosts Big Brother spin off show Big Brother's Bit On The Side - had been dating Dan since last year, when he appeared on the reality TV show.

The couple apparently got engaged at the weekend during a trip to Paris.

Several celebrities have rushed to congratulate Rylan and Dan, including recent Celebrity Big Brother contestant Lauren Goodger who tweeted: "@Rylan @DanNealOfficial babe congrats!! So happy for you both lots love Lauren."

David Walliams joked: "@Rylan I am shocked. I had absolutely no idea you were gay."
