Nine months later the couple announced their engagement in September 2013, with Mark choosing to pop the question when the pair went back to Dubai for holiday."It didn't take me long to realise that Michelle is everything I wanted," Mark told HELLO! "I rang my dad and said, ' What knee do I drop on? But it seems that Mark can’t resist the allure of Emily. He and the Aussie beauty went on to indulge in some very obvious flirting while discussing Mark’s bush tucker trial with Freddie Starr, and jokingly said: “I’m glad you’ve turned up because there are more young people. Our models at the agency will be watching in anticipation!
So proud of you @michkeegan." And it wasn't long before fans of the couple rushed to send their support to the loved-up duo as one fan wrote: "You two are a great hard working couple and Michelle I like everything you do, acting, modelling and especially your dress sense.
Sharing a loved up photo on Instagram, Michelle wrote: "Happy Anniversary to my love ...

You are a true British icon with elegance, class and so much sincerity.
