Freddie first confirmed they were dating back in January 2018.

Last October, Freddie paid tribute to his now fiancee on Instagram with a cheeky caption to celebrate their anniversary.

Alongside a cute photo of them together, Fred wrote: "Happy anniversary #fruitcake Think I might go straight to dessert."

The exciting news comes a few weeks after it was announced that that First Dates would be relocating to Manchester for the next series.

In addition, the casting team – along with the editors – will be based in Bristol this time around, as part of production company Twenty Twenty's commitment to both regions.

Speaking about the move up North, Leanne Klein, Twenty Twenty's managing director said: "We are very excited to be taking our flagship dating series to the regions.

"We have already begun tapping into the fantastic local talent pool in Bristol from where we are putting together our new team of casters and date editors.

"And with the move of the First Dates restaurant, we will have the chance to expose our daters to a brand new experience with a few exciting new tweaks to the much-loved format."

First Dates airs on Channel 4.
