Sian Welby has opened up on her ‘romantic’ engagement after returning from holiday in Greece on Tuesday.
The TV and radio presenter, 36, revealed her radio producer beau Jake Beckett had popped the question last week as she took to Instagram with a slew of loved-up snaps.
Returning to work at the Capital Breakfast studios, Sian sat down with her co-host Roman Kemp, who was quick to congratulate her on the milestone moment.
Keen to hear all the details, Roman, 30, immediately pointed out her sparkly new engagement ring.
He said: ‘Now, Sian, you’ve come in today and there’s something on your finger.

‘Now, there’s usually something on mine and we don’t discuss it, but for some reason we need to do it on yours, so would you like to tell everyone what happened?
Amused, Sian responded: ‘I got engaged! I just like that all morning you’ve been teasing it like I’ve done disgusting stuff to my hand.
‘But anyway, I got engaged, I did not see it coming, you know, we all have little discussions in the room like “Would you ever get engaged, or do you want to get married?”
‘I sort of didn’t mind either way, I’ve never really had it planned in my head and so I didn’t see this coming at all. It was day two of the holiday week, we went to Crete…’
‘What happened?’ Roman asked, prodding for details.
Sian continued: ‘We always like to do a boat day where we hire a little boat and take it out on the water for few hours, and so again, that wasn’t suspicious because I expected us to do that.
‘It turned out that he had put the ring, because he didn’t have a bag or anything, he put it up his top but the back.
‘Sorry, I said that a little bit slow, up his top, nowhere else, he put it up the back of his T-shirt and then use the shorts and sort of tucked.

‘Then suddenly, he starts saying some really nice things, how we’ve been together… it clicked when he said, “So if I asked you to marry me, would you?” and I went “what?!”.
‘He gave himself a buffer!’ Roman joked.
Sian said: ‘He didn’t go on one knee because we’re on the back of a boat, so there wasn’t a lot of room but he was sat on the back and it was it was romantic, it was really nice.
‘He’d said a load of nice things and then at that point I looked up because I was lying down sunbathing, and then he had the ring in his hand and then I didn’t know what to say I was all awkward then said “Oh my god yes!”‘
After enquiring as to whether the ring fit or not, Sian confirmed: ‘It fit perfectly! It’s the most embarrassing reason how he got that right.
‘He’d gone to the place where he got the ring and he was sort of taking to this woman and she was really good at judging.
‘She can judge the size of the ring finger based on your other fingers. So he found this picture of me, I’ve got a raptor hat on and my arms are going “Raaaa”.’
The This Morning star revealed she was engaged in a sweet Instagram post last week, showing off her ring as she posed in snaps with her radio producer beau Jake.
The pair looked delighted as they beamed for the camera as Sian wowed in a green bikini.
