There must be something in the water with Gogglebox stars today announcing their engagements. Just after Eva Woerdenweber announced her engagement, Chris Steed announced his too!
Chris, know as one half of the duo Chris and Stephen has flashed the new rock on his finger after his long-term boyfriend Tony Butland popped the question at the top of the Eiffel Tower.
The hairdresser tweeted his excitement and revealed that of course he’d said yes.

But fear not, the Gogglebox ex’s, and still good friends won’t be leaving the sofa anytime soon!
His fellow co-star has revealed they won’t get rid of his that easily!
Despite audiences desperate for the Channel 4 duo to rekindle their romance, the exes aren’t going anyway, and will still watch TV together, after Stephen tweeted:
In an interview with WhatsonTV, Chris and Steve previously admitted Gogglebox played a huge part in their break up – despite continuing to star in the show.

“We realised that our opinions are quite different, and the show did highlight that,” explained Stephen. “And I did feel when I watched it back that I almost pick on him, and I didn’t like that feeling.
And I thought as a friend it’s more acceptable to be like that, but as lovers, no, it didn’t work.”
Congratulations to the newly engaged couple!
Both Stephen and Eve be will be flaunting their new rocks on Gogglebox this Friday at 8pm on Channel 4.
