East 17 star engaged after romantic northern lights proposal

East 17 star Blair Dreelan is officially engaged to his girlfriend Sophie Hind, as she shared the exciting news on Instagram with her followers.

The sweet couple, who have been together for over a decade, got engaged in Reykjavík, Iceland, as Blair got down on one knee under the northern lights.

Blair and his professional dancer fiance, Sophie, can be seen posing for snaps in front of the stunning backdrop. They even caught the moment Blair proposed, as Sophie held her hands up to her face. The bride-to-be also flaunted her stunning engagement ring as she held her finger up to the camera for one of the snaps. Blair and Sophie captioned their joint post: “21.11.23 a magical moment”.

Fans rushed to send to happy couple their congratulatory messages as one said: “Congratulations beauties! Love you both and so happy for you!”, while another added: “Congratulations to you both What a location wow”.

A third penned: “About bloody time! Fantastic! Congrats to you both”, while another added: “Oh my gosh we was wondering how you’ve kept her this long with no ring congratulations”.

Singer Blair shot to fame after he reached the finals of The X Factor in 2004, while in the boyband 4th Ba5e.

He later joined the band East 17 in 2011 and they went on tour. Unfortunately, he was forced to leave the group, due to previous contractual obligations.

Blair then switched up singing for managing and launched his own management company called Alpha Dog Management where he manages bands including Union J.

ITV singing competition X Factor ran for 17 years and scouted musicians including Little Mix, One Direction, Olly Murs and Harry Styles, before it was cancelled in 2021. Simon Cowell opened up last year on whether the singing show could ever return.

Simon, 62, told The Sun that if the show did ever return he would strip it “back to basics” and format the show similar to how it began in 2004.

"When we first started the show it was very simple with unique elements. I'd argue you can't make a better music show than that," he explained. I have an expression though – if you're going to go to a party, have an invitation. You want to feel people are excited at the thought of The X Factor returning."
