On February 20, singer and guitarist Stewart Hull from Stoke Holy Cross was part of a special proposal on the London Eye after receiving a call from a gentleman named Gabriel to help in asking his girlfriend, Susanna, to marry him.

Mr Hull said: "It went great, everything went according to plan. It was like clockwork."

Gabriel had met with Mr Hull and the photographer before Susanna arrived. A cover story was in place so as not to ruin the surprise and they were told to pretend to be work colleagues who had won a raffle prize for the ride.

Susanna believed the story entirely, thinking Stewart had bought his guitar along for a bit of fun.

They boarded the private pod and Stewart was told to wait a few minutes before starting to sing. He began with 'Can't Help Falling in Love' and at the top of the wheel, Gabriel got down on one knee.

Mr Hull said: "You should have seen her face, it was all very emotional. And of course, she said yes."
