Great British Bake Off star Ruby Bhogal has revealed that her proposal story isn’t quite Nicholas Sparks novel-worthy.

The 34-year-old was enjoying a trip to the Big Apple with partner James Stew which he decided would be the perfect place to pop the question. So far, so good.

However, a plate of chicken was the villain of the day and led to Ruby having some pretty terrible-sounding food poisoning.

‘I wish we had a romantic story to go alongside it but food poisoning managed to kick in right about 5 mins before he was about propose and I was about to have a bridesmaid moment running across the street (iykyk) so yay for love and yay for uncooked chicken in NYC,’ she joked.

In the 2011 film, Lillian (played by Maya Rudolph) gets food poisoning which strikes while trying on wedding dresses. When the bathroom is occupied she runs outside to attempt to find another place to relieve herself, but ends up slowly squatting as she can’t fight it any longer.

This leads to Annie (Kristen Wiig) uttering one of the best lines in movie history: ‘You’re really doing it, aren’t ya? You’re shitting in the street!’

Ruby can luckily see the funny side of her debacle as she decided to share the tale with her 457k Instagram followers.

‘I love this life 🖤🥰⁣,’ Ruby added at the end of her story.

The proposal took place three weeks ago, but the couple waited to share the news so they could ensure all their loved ones knew first. Now there’s only one thing on Ruby and BBC presenter James’ agenda – planning their wedding.

‘Time to start planning a big FAT Indian wedding but all I’m thinking about is the CAKE am I right?!’ wrote the 2018 GBBO finalist.

The comments were filled with celebratory messages from fans, friends and celebrity pals alike, including Oti Mabuse and Candice Brown who both wrote: ‘Congratulations’.

Dr Rahul Mandal who won her series chirped in too: ‘Congratulations, what an amazing news. Waiting for this to happen for years. But the big question is “who is baking the cake?” ,.. you have a lot of options, just saying.’

Sneaky James risked Ruby finding out by taking photos of the ring with Ruby unaware in the background at various points in their trip including on the areoplane, and while she was brushing her teeth.
