He is my family. Waking up this morning to hateful comments was no fun. We get through and ignore them.

Speaking to Manchester Evening News, she said: “The proposal was a complete shock! When we got to Parklife, I quickly realized we were going for a meet and greet with Yung Filly, but I didn’t realize that was going to happen. I had absolutely no idea about it and as you can see from the pictures and video I couldn’t even speak.
“I cried very happy tears when Sacha called me. Not many good things happen in my life, so when something like that happens, it has a huge impact. Myles had arranged it all with Filly’s manager weeks before.
“We both have regular jobs and don’t have a lot of free time, so I think it will be a few years before we can pay for our wedding, but I certainly don’t mind waiting. I hope we can do it in the next two years, but nothing is planned yet. I’m still in shock from yesterday and the amount of attention it has sent me on a rollercoaster of emotions.”

“Don’t read, it’s the beginning of your life, go on and enjoy it. This has certainly been a trip they will never forget. She now has my number, she and Myles, she can call me anytime, come to one of our events and they sit down, pick a wedding date and then we’ll talk about packing them up on vacation.”
