And they haven’t been shy when it comes to showering each other with affection.

Speaking to The Sun Online, the show’s Associate Creative Director, who has known Brianne for 20 years, said: “They’re really loved up the both of them. They’re always having a cheeky snog backstage, which is gorgeous to see.

“When I see them two together you can see it’s real. They really are in love with each other, and they’re just having a great time together.

“Brianne’s little girl Gracie loves Kevin to bits as well. I’m really made up for her because they really deserve happiness, and it looks like they’ve found it in each other.

“They’ve both fallen head over heels, when it’s right it’s right.”

The pair were eliminated from the competition on Sunday night and shared a steamy snog following their skate off performance, leaving host Holly Willoughby blushing.

Professional dancer Brianne shared the moment Kevin asked her to marry him on Instagram this morning.

She wrote: “He couldnt have been more perfect ~ I love you @kdkilbane77 . 02.04.2020 .”

Kevin wore a crisp white shirt and red tie for the special occasion, which took place inside swanky London restaurant STK.

Brianne, 38, shared the moment Kevin, 42, popped the question on Instagram.

A huge sparkling ring was then delivered to the table by a waiter before Kevin then belted out a romantic song and dropped to one knee.

Brianne, who could be heard saying “are you serious?”, wasted no time in saying yes.

It was met with a round of applause from diners, and the couple sealed the special moment with a kiss.

While Ian H Watkins wrote: “YASSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!! xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx.”

Kevin went all out with his choice of ring, with an expert claiming it would retail for 53,000.

Andrew Brown, CEO of WP Diamonds, said: Briannes engagement ring looks to be a 3-carat pear shaped diamond with a diamond halo. Assuming it is a white diamond with a colour clarity of G VS, the ring would retail for around 53,000.

Brianne and Kevin have moved in together

The whirlwind romance only began when they partnered up on the show late last year, and they recently moved in together.

The Sun Online exclusively revealed the ITV show stars were dating in December.

The loved-up couple recently spoke out about their living arrangements to Mirror Online in a candid chat in which they discussed their household task sharing.

Kevin said: Im certainly not the boss on the ice. Bri holds me up all the time, she controls it.

Brianne added: He takes more control at home. He cooks the meals, does the laundry. Hes more of the boss.
