But just last month, Leigh-Anne admitted her hopes of a proposal and then summer wedding appeared to have been dashed because of the coronavirus pandemic.

Addressing the issue during a recent radio interview, she said: ‘The wedding is probably not going to happen now because we can’t go anywhere. 

‘He’s probably not going to (want to) do it in the house. So it looks like my dream is officially over.

‘I’ve not really been planning it but every girl has got the idea of what they want, we’ll see, it is a dream of mine.’

Last month, Leigh-Anne admitted she has been unhappy with the restrictive lockdown measures put in place during the global coronavirus health crisis.

Taking to Instagram, she wrote: ‘I’ve been a moody b***h lately with this whole quarantine thing I’m not going to lie… thank you Andre for putting up with my face all day every day.’

Leigh-Anne previously dated Ashford Town FC footballer Jordan Kiffin for four years before the couple separated in 2016.
