Former New Orleans Rose Molly Molloy Gamble caused a stir last year when she said 'no' 11 times after her boyfriend Kyle Catlett got down on bended knee on the Rose of Tralee stage.

The proposal became the TV moment of the year, going viral and being watched by millions more around the world.

Molly Molly did eventually say yes and despite the couples mixed experience of sharing their proposal with everyone, they have invited the Irish nation to their wedding.

RTE 2 documentary The Proposal follows Molly Molly and Kyle as they reflect back on that night in Tralee, and how the world reacted to their proposal story.

The programme follows the couple in the lead up to the big day in the bible belt of the deep south for an Alabama wedding with an Irish twist.

The programme will also feature contributions from some of Irelands best known married to give their take on ‘the proposal’ and to talk about their own wedding and proposal stories.

Contributors include Ray D’Arcy, Aengus Mac Grianna, Angela Scanlon, Rosanna Davison, Vogue Williams, Bernard O'Shea and Kelly McDonagh Mongan.

'The Proposal' airs tonight on RTE 2 at 9.30pm, four months after their wedding day.

And the famous proposal...
