TV presenter and model Vogue Williams and her fiancé Spencer Matthews celebrated their engagement in Dublin last night.

The pair, who were the picture of happiness as they chatted with friends, were in R.I.O.T nite club in Aston Quay for their celebrations.

The loved-up couple, who had been dating for a year before they got engaged on Thursday, kept their celebrations casual, with Spencer wearing Nike trainers and jeans, and Vogue in a sheer leopard print shirt and black jeans.

Vogue posed for photos with her close friends Clodagh Watson and Sarah Regan.

Earlier yesterday, they had been at the Leopardstown races, where Vogue entertained the crowds as DJ. She also took to the decks in R.I.O.T later that night.

Matthews, a former Made In Chelsea star (28), revealed earlier this week that he got down on one knee on stage after a production of The Lion King at The Lyceum Theatre in London's West End.

He explained that he saw the musical as the perfect opportunity to ask Vogue to be his wife.

“I’ve known Vogue was the one for a long time," he said in a statement.

“We’re very happy and in love. She’s my best friend and I can’t wait to spend the rest of my life with her.

“The engagement had to be special, and as our first trip away together was to Disneyland Paris, it felt like the perfect fit.

"The Lion King is also one of the greatest stories of all time, so I figured that having just had a romantic evening watching it, she’d probably say yes!"

The couple watched the show from the best seats in the house, before partaking in an exclusive behind the scenes tour of the theatre. The tour then culminated on the beautifully lit-up stage, where the couple were left for a few moments in private for Spencer’s surprise proposal.

The pair were given a guided backstage tour after the musical. They were then led on stage and left for a few moments in private for Spencer's surprise proposal.

A spokesperson for the couple said: “The couple are absolutely over the moon and thrilled to share their exciting news.”

Vogue (32) and Spencer met on the Channel 4 series The Jump at the end of 2016 and quickly started dating.

They moved into a flat together in west London late last year and made an appearance on ITV's Loose Women were Spencer said he loved Vogue "very much".

Vogue was previously married to singer Brian McFadden in 2012, but the pair separated in 2015.

After they split, Vogue said: "I’m not one hundred per cent sure I want to get married again. It used to be important to me, but it doesn't mean the same thing it used to."

"But if you’d asked me eight months ago, it would have been an absolute 'no'. I am softening to the idea as time goes on," she previously said
