Holly Valance gets engaged to Nick Candy. Their first dance should be good

Australian singer/actress Holly Valance has got a very special early Christmas present, as her billionaire property developer boyfriend Nick Candy proposed in spectacular style.

Nick and Holly are on holiday in Mauritius following the finale of Strictly Come Dancing last Saturday, and the groom-to-be got down on one knee on the beach with flaming torches spelling out his request.

Holly shared a picture of the moment Nick popped the question on Twitter last night, with the caption: "And I said YES!!! ♥ Happiest day of my life!!!!! Xxxx"

The couple met at a mutual friend's dinner party in 2009 and moved in together in London soon after.

The 28-year-old Strictly Come Dancing contestant, who found fame on 'Neighbours,' should be able to handle the first dance no problem. We expect Nick will take some lessons to catch up.

We're pretty certain the wedding will be a dazzling affair, thanks to GQ's entrepreneur of the year Nick's huge wealth. The 38-year-old runs the Candy & Candy partnership with his brother, and they count One Hyde Park: The Residences amongst their portfolio of luxury developments.

In an interview last year, Holly revealed what it's like to be in love with a billionaire, saying: "I've got such a disgusting, wide, smug grin on my face all the time that my friends just want to slap me. I've never been so happy."

Big congrats to Holly and Nick!
