Former Ireland goalkeeper Shay Given has denied he's engaged to girlfriend Becky Gibson.

Last night, the loved-up pair attended the world premiere of Mrs Brown's Boys D'Movie in Dublin. And all eyes were on Becky's diamond sparkler on her ring finger, which she proudly posed with.

However, despite earlier reports, the PR professional has denied she is set to marry her boyfriend of a year and a half.

"I can assure you all me and @No1shaygiven are NOT engaged...we are both very happy together but don't believe everything you read," she said on Twitter.


It was initially reported that Given got down on one knee two weeks ago in Los Angeles.

Given left his wife of 12 years, Jane, almost two years ago.


In March last year, she hit the headlines as it was announced Shay was leaving her and the family home.

They were reported to have separated months before the news was made public.
