Big Brother's Hughie Maughan and Ryan Ruckledge are ENGAGED

Big Brother 2016

More than a month now since the end of Big Brother, Hughie Maughan and Ryan Ruckledge have gone and got engaged

The BB couple, who got together in this year's summer series, took to Twitter earlier today to announce the news.

"So the cats out the bag me and @hughie_maughan are officially engaged! So happy and can't wait for the future #biggaygypsywedding ??" Ryan tweeted.

Hughie added: "FINALLY me and ryan can announce that we are officially ENGAGED! We are so happy and everythin feels right, huge hi five 2 the doubters"

The news follows Ryan flying over to Ireland earlier this month to meet Hughie's parents.

"Never good saying good byes but had an amazing time meeting all hughies family they really are amazing, love you," Ryan tweeted at the time.

And in an interview a few weeks back, Ryan hinted at the proposal that was to come.

"I literally idolise him. I love him to bits. He's so cute and loving," Ryan said of Hughie after getting THAT tattoo. "I've been so shallow in the past and I've always been a***d about materialistic things. Now I don't care.

"If anyone said a bad word about Hughie I would literally bite their throat off!"

He's quoted as telling Star magazine: "I think we'll probably have a big fat gay gypsy wedding, and I'm going to wear a wedding dress!"

Ryan was evicted 40 days into the summer series as part of annihilation week but Hughie went on to make the final, finishing as runner up behind Jason Burrill.

Today's news follows reports that Ryan and Hughie's fellow housemates Georgina Leigh Cantwell and Jackson Blyton had also got engaged.
