Kevin Kilbane and his Dancing on Ice partner Brianne Delcourt have announced their engagement after a whirlwind romance.

The former Republic of Ireland footballer and the professional skater revealed that they were dating in early January.

The skating pair first met on the set of the ITV dancing show back in September, and have enjoyed a close relationship with each-other practicing for the live shows. Proudly showing off her handsome diamond ring, the 39-year-old wrote: "He was worth the wait".

"I had huge reservations when I signed up for the show but then Brianne and I got together and it was great, I could have quit before the show started and I would have been happy". Kev, you've made me the happiest girl in the world.

"He was worth the wait", she added alongside the photo. Their DOI journey came to an end at the weekend, when they became the fourth couple to be eliminated from the show.

He sang: "With all my love, I place this wedding ring upon your finger / There won't be time to share our love for we must say good-bye". Brianne has hit the headlines with her past relationships, having previously dated her Dancing On Ice celebrity partners Matt Lapinskas and Sam Attwater, as well as Danny Young, who was partnered with Frankie Poultney.

Cutting a somewhat uncomfortable figure on the ice, Kevin Kilbane, whose initial performances along with Brianne Delcourt were broken down by OTB's own Eoin Sheahan on OTB AM, was captured singing the song "Grace" before proposing to the Canadian in a scene that is relayed below.

"Everything happened very quickly. I certainly knew straight away".

The couple were sent home from Dancing On Ice on Sunday.
