Stevi Ritchie: I never thought I'd 'end up with a posh girl'

Stevi Ritchie "never thought" he'd "end up with a posh girl".

The former 'X Factor' contestant announced his engagement to Chloe Jasmine - who he met on the show last year - yesterday (12.07.15) and the cheeky chappie from Essex has confessed he never imagined he'd be preparing to tie the knot with someone like her.

He said: "I never thought I'd end up with a posh girl! Never in a million years."

However, Stevi thinks it's a good thing they're from such different backgrounds and is enjoying teaching her how to speak in a cockney accent.

He told ITV's 'This Morning': "Opposites attract don't they, most of the time."

Chloe added: "He's teaching me accents!"

Stevi - who has a young daughter from a previous relationship - surprised the blonde beauty by getting down on one knee after presenting her with a gift bag full of tissue paper and a newspaper with the ring hidden inside.

Speaking about how Chloe couldn't find the ring, he shared: "She went, 'Oh darling this is lovely', she thought it was like a teddy bear was going to jump out at her and I said, 'No, no, no babe search away, search away', and she said, 'What is it darling, what is it?' And I had to pull the ring out and put it on her finger."

The couple are now planning to walk down the aisle next year with Stevi's daughter as one of Chloe's bridesmaids.

He added: "We are thinking next summertime and yes, I want my daughter as a bridesmaid."
