Speaking to The Sun, she said admitted after two previous marriages, she finally knew what love meant and would be happy to make the ultimate commitment to her beau.

She said: 'I would marry him tomorrow, if he asked me. If this is what love is I have never experienced it before. 

‘I met him in late November and he was going through a difficult time with his ex. I met him at a difficult time in his life and we became friends first. We did not get together until February as a couple.’ 

Meanwhile, the Strictly Come Dancing class of 2019 were eager to put their moves to the test as they congregated in a London studio on Monday for their very first group rehearsal.
