Alan announced his engagement to long-term partner Paul back in September 2016. The popular chat show host said he was stunned when Paul popped the question during a holiday in Indonesia. At the time, the star said the pair would celebrate with a big wedding, telling The Sun: "The engagement only happened last week so we don't know exactly what we will do. But a big old wedding, and we will get Adele singing Someone Like You." Seems they had a change of heart and preferred to say 'I do' with a select few, although a big celebration is on the cards this year.
