Jay uploaded a heartfelt post to Instagram on Wednesday

Jay popped the question to Lisa-Marie last year, announcing their engagement in December. Posting a snap of Lisa-Marie wearing the engagement ring, which was designed by fellow Repair Shop co-star Richard Talman, the furniture restorer wrote: "It gives me great pleasure to announce that I got engaged to @lisamariezbozen," he wrote. "We wanted to share this news with you as we are very happy & hope to bring the same happiness your way.

"Ring designed by me & made by @rtf."

Prior to meeting Lisa-Marie, Jay was married to his ex-wife Jade, whom he met at university. Their marriage broke down six years ago around the same time that Jay's charity went bust.

Jay became engaged last year 

Speaking about that period on The One Show last year, Jay said: "The biggest repair job we've ever done on The Repair Shop is me.

"About five or six years ago, I felt down and I was in a really dark place. I hit rock bottom basically and mental health-wise, I couldn't see tomorrow."

He continued: "It was a case of there was no future for me, and when you can't see tomorrow, [you think] there's no need to exist today. And just going through The Repair Shop, they just all got me back to where I should be."
