The 'Celebrity Masterchef' star popped the question to his girlfriend Sinead Chambers - who is pregnant with their first child together - on Thursday night (09.07.20), and she accepted his proposal on their first date night "in a long time".

In a series of messages, he wrote on Twitter: "It's our first date night in a long time. We are going all out tonight x

"I've just got down on one knee. To ask the love of my life to Marry me.


Thomas - who shot to fame on 'The Apprentice' last year - was inundated with messages of congratulations from celebrities and his former co-stars.

Lewis Ellis - who appeared alongside the pillow company owner on the BBC business show - wrote; "Yesssss congratulations !!! Not the life sentence I expected to read about and I'm glad of it ... (sic)"

Carina Lepore - who won last year's series - posted: "Amazing! Insane! So happy (sic)"

Ryan-Mark Parsons - who also appeared on the show - wrote: "Congratulations! x Both of you look delicious (sic)"

Former 'TOWIE' stars Amy Childs and Harry Derbidge also wished Thomas and Sinead well.

In April, Thomas revealed he is to become a dad for the first time.

He said: "I am absolutely over the moon - it's honestly the best news I've had in my life.

"At this crazy time for everyone I just want to share my happy news, it's just fantastic and I'm so excited for what's to come."

But Thomas, who became a fan favourite after appearing on last year's series of the BBC One show, was "gutted" to miss out on Sinead's first baby scan, as the mother-to-be had to attend on her own due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
