Lisa Cannon really was a Wonder Woman at the weekend when she attended her 80s-themed engagement bash.

The Xpose presenter (35) revealed her fun side as she donned the form-fitting superhero's costume.

Sticking to the theme, her fiancé Richard Keatley plumped for the character Lion-O from the cult '80s cartoon Thundercats.

He really made the effort with an aqua-marine body suit, complete with blue boots, a bright orange wig and a sword with body contouring for extra effect.

The pair even had a Delorean car, made famous in the film Back to the Future.

Speaking after the bash in the Odeon, Lisa said: "I have never belly-laughed so much." She described it as "the funniest night in a long time" and said it had been "incredible."

Pulling out all the stops, the couple had an edible cake display featuring lots of things close to the couple's hearts. They had an Eiffel tower cake to represent the spot where Richard first proposed to Lisa last October.

They also had a giant Rubik's Cube, a Bosco cake, an MTV logo, an old £20 note and a mock-up of a Pacman board.

One attendee said: "They made such an effort to keep to the 80's theme. Nothing was left to chance. All their guests made an effort to dress up and it was 80s music all night long. They all had a ball."

She invited lots of her closest family and friends to join her and Richard on the night as they marked their upcoming nuptials.

Among those spotted at the party were her Xpose pals Karen Koster and Aisling O'Loughlin alongside Celia Holman Lee and Cocoa Brown founder Marissa Carter. Other attendees included top model Sarah Morrissey as she helped the smitten couple celebrate their engagement.
