Saturday Night Takeaway lad gobsmacked as girlfriend proposes for 23rd time

In tonight's episode of Ant and Dec's Saturday Night Takeaway, hosts Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly opened up the show with a live propose-a-thon.

A handful of lucky ladies – in the audience and at home – were secretly gearing up to pop the question to their other halves.

The Geordie lads announced: "There's one woman who's proposed to the same man 22 times since last December – and he has no idea."

They then shared a slideshow of photos of a woman proposing to a man behind his back, while the camera showed an audience member reacting and slowly figuring things out.

Shocked, the lad, Chris turned to his girlfriend Becky, who pulled out a ring.

She said: "Chris, you make me smile every single day. You're the best daddy to our little boy. I'm sorry for doing this on national telly, but will you marry me?"

Luckily he said yes – otherwise that could've made for a seriously awkward moment.

After the successful proposal, Dec said: "Yes, it's 29th February, that's what this is all about – empowering women every day."

But that couple weren't the only couple getting engaged tonight.

Next up were Natalie and Steven, with Natalie saying: "I just want to say, you've been absolutely amazing through this pregnancy, and becoming my husband and Lexie's stepdad would mean the world."

He also said yes.

There was also a couple at home in Doncaster, with Anne saying to her husband-to-be: "My little soldier, we've been together for 30 years and I absolutely love you dearly, let's get married!"

Her now-fiancé shouted yes and they threw their arms around each other.

And as the segment went on there were plenty more, including a woman calling in live from New York City.
