Hughie and Ryan.

Apparently these two former Big Brother stars have gotten engaged – we couldn’t be happier for them!

Ryan Ruckledge and Hughie Maughan have sparked engagement rumours after Ryan wrote, rather cryptically “I Do” on his social media.

He then added a load of emoji’s just for good measure,  including a diamond ring, Church and a couple holding hands.

Ryan then added: “Best mood ever today.”

Hughie responded: “Love you xx.”


But is it for real this time? The couple, who got together in the last series of Big Brother already joked that they would get married whilst on the show, but it looks as this time the news is completely true.

Ryan then tweeted a row of hearts with today’s date (22nd September) possibly signifying the date of their engagement.

Hughie seemingly endorsed the idea that this time the news was legit by retweeting a number of reports about the pair’s engagement.

We want an invite to the wedding guys – and not an evening invite – the full wedding breakfast… with white wine.


A note from the editor.

These are tough times for us all. Without a doubt. But we're here for you and want to continue being here for you for the foreseeable future. needs your help to survive. Due to the nature of the articles that we publish, we find it very hard to monetize our site and have been heavily restricted by ad platforms. This leaves us two ways of making money to keep this site going. 1) We run an online shop which we encourage you to visit and if you can make a purchase and 2) We run popup shops at the prides we media partner with. As you'll no doubt be aware the majority of pride events have been cancelled or postponed for 2020, which leaves our site at risk of closure.

Around 70 per cent of our funding comes from these popup shops. So we have a severe funding shortfall for 2020.

If just 100 people who use this site each donated £2 per month we'd be able to pay for the hosting for the rest of the year - meaning we can continue to keep THEGAYUK online. Please, if you can, consider donating £2 or whatever you can to keep us going.

Thank you.
