Greg James has got engaged.

The BBC Radio 1 DJ took to his Instagram account to reveal his fiancée Bella popped the question to him in February and he "immediately" accepted her proposal, because she is the "smartest, funniest and most beautiful" person he has ever met.

He wrote: "Oh while we're doing announcements, here's something else...I'm having the time of my life and enjoying my work more than ever. I feel really content and it's nice to have my s**t together before I undertake a huge new work challenge. One of the main reasons for this happiness is because I met this person. This is Bella and in February she asked me to marry her. I said yes immediately because she is the smartest, funniest and most beautiful person I've ever met. (sic)"

Greg shared a picture of himself giving Bella a kiss on the cheek and joked there was one issue with their engagement in that she likes to stay up late - in a nod to this week's announcement that he will be taking over hosting duties on the BBC Radio 1 Breakfast Show from Nick Grimshaw.

He added: "The only problem is she loves staying up into the early hours drinking as much as I do and this is not conducive with 5am alarms. That said, it's been quite a year.(sic)"

"The listeners have become like mates during the ten years I've been on air, so to be there when they wake up is a real honour. They're always front and centre and this will of course be the case on the new Breakfast Show. It's going to be the most enjoyable challenge I've ever undertaken and I can't wait to get started."
