The X Factor 2016 auditions saw a marriage proposal in tonight's latest round of auditions - and she said yes!

The surprise question came as a male and female duo performed for the judges in the latest round of try outs.

He Knows, She Knows are made up of Sharna, 25, and Stephen, 28, who come from Sunderland.

"We've been together like six months now and it is a fairytale," Stephen explained.

"To walk into that room is probably going to be one of the most memorable days of my life," Sharna added, as the pair's friends and family met for the first time with Dermot O'Leary.

They belted out Justin Bieber's Love Yourself and made it through to bootcamp with four yeses.

"There's something so great about the two of you," Nicole Scherzinger said.

But it was following the audition where things got really interesting as Stephen shocked the judges and Sharna as he got down on one knee to propose.

She said yes (thank GOD!) before showing off the ring to the judges.

"There's going to be an X Factor wedding!" exclaimed Nicole.

"I don't think I've had a happier day in life," reacted Sharna.

Another couple who went before the judges in tonight's show were Tramp And The Lady, made up of James, 33, and Stephanie, 57 who are from Liverpool.

They described their relationship as "professional" but teased they "crossed boundaries every now and then" before singing The Carpenters' Close To You together.

Louis Walsh described the performance as "odd" before the pair left with four nos.

Another pairing came from Kayleigh and Stefan, aged 19 and 47 respectively, who are a father and daughter singing duo from Germany.

They performed Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody and got through to bootcamp after a very enthusiastic audition as Nicole declared: "I like crazy".
