Gogglebox star Josh Tapper has celebrated his engagement in epic style.

The TV star – who first appeared on the Channel 4 programme in 2013 – popped the question to his girlfriend, Hannah Sterman, in March.

Celebrating their joyous news, the future bride and groom threw a wholesome party for loved ones over the weekend.

Josh, 26, couldn’t hide his smile as he posed with his wife-to-be.

Taking to social media, Josh’s sister Amy, who has also been on Gogglebox, gave fans an insight via a series of snaps.

Hannah looked gorgeous in a white mini-dress, clearly already in the bridal spirit.

Meanwhile, Josh looked super smart in a grey suit teamed with a white shirt.

Beaming, the happy couple stood alongside Josh’s parents and Amy, who looked the spitting image of her mum, oozing summer joy in a yellow frock.

It was clearly (and understandably) a lively affair, with Amy also sharing a video of Josh spinning her around on the dancefloor.

Later, Love Story by Taylor Swift blasted out of the speakers as Josh got down on one knee to reenact the special moment in front of their nearest and dearest.

For decorations, Josh and Hannah were treated to two huge lights shaped in their initials.

Amy captioned her social media post: ‘The most special night celebrating my favourite people 💍💖

‘Too much love in the room for @joshtapper & @hannahsterman84’.

Confirming her brother’s engagement earlier this year, Amy congratulated the pair and expressed her happiness to have gained a sister.

Alongside a picture of her brother with Hannah flashing her ring, an excitable Amy penned: ‘The phone call I’ve been waiting for and the best news in the entire world.

‘My friends are engaged. I officially have a sister.’

The former Channel 4 star continued: ‘Welcome to the family Han, couldn’t wish for anyone better.’

Josh and Hannah are childhood sweethearts, having started dating around the age of 17.

Meanwhile, planning a wedding isn’t the only thing that will keep Josh busy this year.

The TV personality announced just days ago that he will be running to be a Labour MP in the next election.

With the hopes of replacing the Deputy Prime Minister in the seat, he has a lot of campaigning ahead.

After he was selected as the parliamentary candidate for the Hertsmere constituency, Josh has gained the backing of the bookies already.

In fact, William Hill reveals his odds are at 5/2.

William Hill spokesperson Lee Phelps said: ‘This was a very unexpected move from Labour, but Hertsmere has only ever been represented by a Conservative MP, so the decision to alter their approach can only be seen as a positive.’

A political run is, of course, a major shift from his reality TV stint.

He appeared alongside his sister and their parents, mum Nikki and dad Jonathan, on Gogglebox for five years.

They were firm fan favourites until their exit in 2018.
