Katie Salmon has announced she is engaged to her boyfriend Harry.
The Love Island star, 26, is best known for appearing on the ITV2 dating series in 2016 – where she made show history by coupling up with Sophie Gradon to become the show's first same-sex coupling.
Katie announced the happy news on Instagram on Christmas Day, as she shared a series of photos from the romantic beachside proposal in Thailand.
One photo shows Katie grinning widely as she flashed the gorgeous ring Harry proposed with, which consisted of a single square cut diamond on a gold band.
Katie's fiancé Harry is cuddling his wife-to-be while kissing her cheek in the image.
Another photo sees Harry down on one knee during the romantic beach proposal. Harry is in a pink two-piece shorts and pol shirt set while he kneels in front of Katie, who has her hand out to accept the ring.
Katie opted for a simply but chic look as she wore a white shirt and black cycling shorts.
A final photo sees the newly-engaged pair hugging and kissing after Katie said "yes".
The Love Island star shared the photos with her 262,000 Instagram followers and shared her joy in the caption.
"HE ASKED ME TO BE HIS WIFE," she wrote. "My best friend, my twin flame, The love of my life asked me to marry him and made me the happiest girl alive!!!!"
Katie then made reference to the couple's home being robbed earlier this year as she continued: "My baby, we’ve been through so much together and built so much, I cannot wait to share this next chapter with you and take your hand in marriage forever.
"I love you so much I have no other words to say! The best Christmas …"
She then ended the caption: "YES, YES YES".

Olivia Bowen wrote: "Congratulations my gorgeous girl. You two are meant to be!!!!!"
While Georgia Harrison said: "so happy for you cxx" and The Only Way Is Essex star Nicole Bass added: "Congratulations darling" followed by a clapping hand emoji and heart emoji.
