We've all seen before our own eyes how devoted Harry Redknapp is to his wife Sandra. They became everyone's #couplegoals (if you're a moron and hashtag that crap) while he was in I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!
So, who better to choose than 'Arry himself to help pick an engagement ring? James McVey had it allll figured out when he took the former footy manager out on a little shopping trip for something a bit more important than Dingo Dollars.
Yep, that's right, The Vamps star has popped the question to his girlfriend, 23-year-old Kirstie Brittain, with the help of Redknapp himself when it came to the all important bling.
Speaking to Hello! magazine, James revealed that his stint in the jungle made him think about the important things.
He explained: “Harry said he knew a really good jeweller whenever I was ready to do it and I thought, 'I may as well just do it'. By the time Harry arrived I had already chosen the ring; as soon as I saw it I knew it was the one. And Harry loved it too.”

James proposed during a weekend break in the Lake District and Kirstie told the publication: “At first I said, 'what are you doing?' I thought he was holding a sock because he had the ring box at an odd angle.
“I kept saying, 'are you joking?' And he hadn't actually asked me to marry him because he was crying.”
James added: “I was crying. She said, 'Aren't you going to ask me then?' So I did.”

In an emotional Instagram post, James wrote: “In the words of Noah, 'The best love is the kind that awakens the soul; that makes us reach for more, that plants the fire in our hearts and brings peace to our minds.'
“Kirstie has taught me to love, to listen and to learn. She's taught me confidence, bravery and positivity. She's truly given me something to value and cherish. I'm forever grateful. Here's to the rest of our lives together.”
James appeared on Loose Women in December and explained: “Harry and Sandra are the true love story, it's very easy for us all to think it doesn't exist but it really does.”
He added: “They're definitely the example that's made me realise, you know, Kirstie and I are very, very happy with what we have and we just kind of want to do it really. He's kind of given me the inspiration to take the next step.”
Congratulations, you guys.
