Today is February 29th or ‘Leap Day’ and tradition says that it’s the one day of the year when a woman can propose to her partner.
While we are firm believers that people should feel free to pop the question whenever they want, one woman decided that she was going to take advantage of the occasion and ask her boyfriend to marry her.
If that wasn’t nerve-wracking enough, Helen got in touch with the team on This Morning and brought a film crew to her fella Mark’s workplace to broadcast their special moment on live television.
Butcher Mark clearly wasn’t expecting the gesture as he is noticably stunned when his significant other arrives, leading to some tense moments while she waits for his answer.
It’s fair to say that we had exactly the same reaction as presenters Holly and Philip when watching this!
“I’ve come today to ask you a very, very serious question. You know that I love you so much and you’re my soulmate and the best thing that’s ever happened to me,” said Helen.
“Well, today I’ve come to ask… will you marry me?”
Luckily, there was a very happy ending as Mark accepted her proposal and the newly engaged couple were joined by their nearest and dearest as they celebrated the news.
Congrats to the happy couple!
