British television host Melanie Sykes is engaged to marry her boyfriend Jack Cockings, after meeting on social networking site Twitter four months ago!
Sykes and Cockings started talking to each other in April, before meeting up in person the following month.
Melanie, who currently co-hosts “Let’s Do Lunch With Gino and Mel”, took to Twitter to announce her happy news, writing, “To my beautiful twitter friends just want to let you know that me [and] Jack are engaged to be married and we are very giddy xxxx”.
The former model and Cockings plan to tie the knot next May.
Jack, who is a roofer, had to get a loan from his father to purchase the engagement ring.
