Marius proposed back in March with a vintage ruby-and-diamond Bavarian engagement ring.
Reflecting on the moment he asked for her hand in marriage, the actress admitted his proposal came as a huge surprise – and preempted her own plans by one week.
‘I had planned for a big proposal on the beach in India on holiday but I am not very good at keeping secrets,’ she explained.
‘I’m someone who gives people their Christmas presents a week early… and so instead it just happened here at home, one Sunday morning, the week before we went away.
‘We were having a lie-in and I had no idea he was planning to propose. It was so perfect as I am not someone who likes big moments, and it was just very Marius – He says it as he feels it. It was very lovely, very relaxed.’
The actress previously dated former EastEnders co-star Joe Swash for two years before they separated in 2010.
She went on to date professional dancer Artem Chigvintsev for four years after they won Strictly Come Dancing together in late 2010.
