Konnie Huq becomes engaged to Charlie Brooker

Wednesday June 9, 2010

Former Blue Peter presenter Konnie Huq is due to tie the knot with TV critic Charlie Brooker after he popped the question.

A couple for nine months, Konnie and Charlie had planned to marry in Las Vegas during a month-long road trip around the US.

They have had to put their plans on hold, however, after Konnie's new job offer as presenter of the Xtra Factor.

"Konnie and Charlie are very much in love. They got engaged some weeks ago, but have been trying to keep the news quiet," a source close to the couple says.

"They were going to go on holiday this Friday and were thinking of actually getting married in Vegas, but that has all been put on ice after Konnie got the Xtra Factor. It's been a bit of a whirlwind week."
