Engaged Ant McPartlin looks blissfully happy after Anne-Marie Corbett said 'yes' as he plays golf

NEWLY engaged Ant McPartlin looked blissfully happy playing golf after Anne-Marie Corbett said "yes".

The presenter, 45, was all smiles while out on the green with a golfer and one of Anne-Marie's daughters.

Ant wore a pair of blue trackies, matched with a blue fleece.

He completed the look with a striped bobble hat, keeping him warm while he golfs.

The photos show him teeing up, before knocking it away.

He looks pleased with the shot and even gives out a high five.

The star has more than his golfing skills as reason to be happy after he got down on one knee at their London home with a ring he designed himself.

Ant and Anne-Marie were together for two-and-a-half years before their engagement.

The happy couple told family and friends including Ant's best pal, Declan Donnelly, about their engagement.

Last night a friend said: "Ant has been planning this for some time – but wanted to make sure the moment was just right.

"2020 has been a pretty torrid year for everybody, and this is the happy news that all their friends and family have been waiting for.

"Both Amzie and Ant adore Christmas, and get really into it every year, so Ant decided to pop the question on Christmas Eve. 

"He's a traditionalist, so got down on one knee after first checking with Anne Marie's family that he had their blessing. It was super-romantic, and obviously Anne-Marie said 'yes' straight away."

"Obviously getting engaged in the midst of a pandemic isn't ideal when it comes to planning a wedding… at the moment a summer ceremony is looking extremely unlikely, so it may well be a 2022 affair." 

Ant's long-term co-star, Dec, and his wife Ali are understood to be "thrilled" for the couple, with the 45-year-old expected to act as Best Man when they wed.

A spokesman confirmed the engagement, adding: "Ant and Amzie are delighted to announce their engagement. The proposal took place on Christmas Eve at home in a very romantic setting."
