Billie Faiers has revealed she is engaged.

The Only Way Is Essex star and the mother-to-be said fiance Greg Shepherd proposed on holiday in the Maldives, before admitting the couple are expecting a baby girl.

"So so so happy to be engaged," tweeted the 24-year-old.

She later wrote: "I'm sooo excited to be having a beautiful baby girl!!"

Billie told OK! magazine that the proposal was quite unexpected.

"He told me on the second night of our holiday that the hotel manager had arranged for us to watch the sunset on one of the sandbanks in the ocean.

"I had no idea he was going to propose! Even when we got there and I saw two chairs with a bottle of champagne, I didn't suspect a thing."

She said yes immediately: "I took one look at that ring and said yes. I really couldn't believe it. We'd spoken about marriage but I thought he'd wait until after the baby was born to propose."

Billie - the sister of Sam Faiers - is thought to be around three months' pregnant. She is expected to reprise her role in the forthcoming 11th series of the ITV2 show, which kicks off in late February, alongside regulars James 'Arg' Argent, Lauren Pope and Jess Wright.
