Jess then gave after Instagram followers a closer look at the stunning engagement ring given to her by William.

Posting the photo of her wearing the diamond on her Instagram story in front of the stunning French Alps backdrop, she revealed to her followers she was still in shock over the proposal as she wrote: "Feels like a dream," under the snap.

Jess confirmed her romance with William in April last year, but kept the identity of her beau a secret.

The brunette told us at the time: “I can’t say too much because I want to keep my love life private at the minute, but I’m happy.

“I want to keep it private as it gives you the chance to work things out. I don’t want to broadcast it for people to scrutinise. When I’m ready to say, OK! will be the first to know!”

She later shared the first photo of her with her new man in May, but kept his face away from view in the holiday picture.

The first snap of the mystery man shows her sitting next to him on a boat, with Jess keeping the identity of her beau private as the pair have the backs to the camera.

Sharing the image on Instagram at the time, she sweetly captioned the post: “No matter where I am in the world so long as it’s with you, I’m home.”

Then, in July Jess made her red carpet debut with her new man, who was then revealed as William Lee Kemp.

As she walked the red carpet at the Lion King premier with her boyfriend in tow, she opened up to OK! online about her new romance.

She told us at the time: “It’s his first time at a red carpet. He’s like: ‘What do you mean we have pictures?’

“I was like: ‘Just follow me!’ Jess added: “We’re really, really good. He’s lovely’.”

Then, in November Jess revealed her reasons for keeping her romance out of the spotlight.

Speaking to OK! online she told us at the time: “In the past, I'd been quite pressured to come out with someone and he wasn't like that, which I was very grateful for.

She added: “I wanted us to have our own time first before I introduced him to this world because it's very intense.

“When he has to do red carpet events with me and stuff – he's not really into all that so I didn't want to force it upon him in the beginning.

“He just lets me get on with it, if it's a lovely evening then of course he'll do the carpet with me but otherwise he just lets me get on with it.”

During the chat with Jess and her mum Carol Wright, 60, William received the seal of approval from Jess’ mum.

When Carol was asked what she thinks of her daughter’s new boyfriend, she told us: “He's lovely, ticks every box that I could wish for for Jessica.

“He’s lovely, he's calm, he's nice, he's got a great personality. He's got no temper about him he's a really calm guy so I like him.”

After going public with her man, Jess has posted a number of loved up snaps of her and William on her Instagram page.

One photo shared last month reveals the pair began dating in January, as she celebrated their anniversary in the caption.

The photo shows the pair sharing a kiss and Jess wrote next to the image: “You’re my real first, hopefully my last. You’re my absolute everything. Happy anniversary my love,” followed by a blue heart emoji.
