Lee played Zammo McGuire on gritty BBC series Grange Hill from 1982 to 1987 alongside Ant McParlin and Declan Donnelly.

His character became addicted to heroin — and led the cast to a top ten hit with anti-drugs charity single Just Say No.

His tweet to fans about his proposal saw him joke about his infamous catchphrase, as he said: “My partner Jess “JUST SAID YES”! Wedding next.”

Lee has been running a locksmiths and key-cutting business since retiring from telly.

But last year he made a surprise comeback 32 years after playing playing Zammo by joining EastEnders.
