Sonia told the Manchester Evening News: “I’m so happy to be engaged. He is my best friend as well as my partner and we’re excited to spend the rest of our lives together! Without going into too much detail, he took me to Manchester Town Hall pretending we were supposed to be trying a new restaurant in there.
“Upstairs is a beautiful space which they call 'The Bees' where we stood talking. He then surprised me by getting down on his knee with the ring in his hand. I burst into tears and of course said yes!"
She added that we will see more of a human and emotional side to Mel as we see what is happening to Bethany.
She said: “It’s not right and Mel knows it’s not but Mel is torn. Nathan says to Mel that if Bethany isn’t there then she will be taking her place and she knows that and doesn’t want to go back to that. As much as Mel doesn’t want to do these things, she is petrified of that.”
