“On Saturday I said yes…”
Made in Chelsea star Ollie Locke has announced his forthcoming marriage on Twitter. The former Celebrity Big Brother star is getting married to his boyfriend, Gareth, who he has known for 10 years.
However, the couple has not been going out for 10 years. According to Ollie, the pair has known each other for a decade but had never made their relationship romantic until earlier this year.
The star took to Twitter to announce the good news.
I have known him for 10 years, and at many of my most important life moments he was in the background. Earlier this year we realised that what we had both been looking for was standing in front of us all along.. I have never been happier in my life.. on Saturday I said yes Xx pic.twitter.com/IPCVtbUKj3
