WEDDING JOY! Melanie Sykes gets engaged to toyboy Jack Cockings after whirlwind Twitter romance
Melanie Sykes has announced that she's engaged to toyboy lover Jack Cockings.
The pair's whirlwind romance started in April after roofer Jack, 26, sent Mel steamy messages on Twitter and the TV presenter responded with a saucy shot of herself in her underwear.
Their exchanges hit the headlines and just 4 months later, mum-of-2 Mel plans to wed her new man - and has confirmed the news on Twitter, the place where they met.
‘Your messages of congratulations have made me cry in a gorgeous lovely way. Thank you so much peeps. I love you xxxxx'
It's thought that Jack, who has a 5-year-old son from a previous relationship, proposed to Mel last week with a cluster diamond ring and the couple are rumoured to be planning a wedding for next May.
‘Mel is thrilled,' a friend tells The Sun.
‘They haven't set a date yet but hope to get married next year. The ring is made up of lots of little diamonds. It's beautiful.'
