Ryan Ruckledge and Hughie Maughan are 'officially' engaged

Ryan Ruckledge and Hughie Maughan are "officially" engaged.

The couple - who embarked on a romance on this year's 'Big Brother' - have announced their engagement on social media on Thursday (29.09.16), and "can't wait" to spend the rest of their lives together.

Ryan announced the news on Twitter. He wrote: "So the cats out the bag me and @hughie_maughan are officially engaged! So happy and can't wait for the future #biggaygypsywedding ?? (sic)."

Hughie, 22, also tweeted: "FINALLY me and ryan can announce that we are officially ENGAGED! We are so happy and everythin feels right, huge hi five 2 the doubters (sic)."

Ryan also broadcasted the news to his Instagram account, which saw him post a picture of the tweets he posted earlier today.

He captioned the post: "Some news for you all (sic)."

Although the pair declared the news publicly the couple are keen to keep their romance and wedding plans "private".

Ryan tweeted: "We don't want to comment on the special crazy moment and how it happened we love you all and we are happy but we want to keep it private X (sic)."

Hughie and Ryan sparked rumours wedding plans were on the cads when Ryan previously tweeted "I do" alongside a string of marital emojis, as well as a countdown for when the pair will be reunited over the past few days.

Meanwhile, Hughie has revealed he felt "awkward" when he would bring his boyfriend home to meet his parents.

Speaking previously about the first time Ryan met his family, he said: "I suppose it's awkward when a guy brings his girlfriend home, even more so when it's a guy.

"But we just got on with things and we were in the same bed.

"I don't really care what anyone thinks. I don't have to ask anyone's permissions to do anything.

"If people don't understand things, and it takes them a while to adjust, that is not going to affect the way I live my life."
