The couple have been dating for three years and telly host Matt Baker told Stacey: “For me, (marriage) is a celebration of the fact you’ve made this commitment to each other.”

Stacey grabbed Poundland’s viral ring from his co-host Alex Jones and said: “Let’s have a look Alex.”

Fiddling with the box, she admitted the jewellery looks more expensive that its price tag.

Stacey, 31, added: “I sort of don’t mind that at all, actually.”

The couple have dated for three years

Stacey recently told The Times Magazine about her plans for a family.

Referring to TV series One Born Every Minute, she said: “I close my legs and think, ‘I’m never going to do that.’ ”

She then admitted: “In the future, (having children) is something I would like, but work is so brilliant at the minute, it won’t be too soon.”

Stacey has won over the nation with her recent stint on Strictly after being crowned this year’s winner of the BBC One dance show with her professional dance partner, Kevin Clifton.

However, life hasn’t always been sequins and glitterballs for the journalist.

The star, who was awarded an MBE earlier this year for her services to broadcasting, was born in Luton to working class mum Diane, who worked as a cleaner and in pubs to provide for Stacey.

The journalist previously dubbed her mum her “hero”, with her father walking out on the family when Stacey was just two and a half years old.

Writing for the BBC, Stacey shared: “My mum, Di, is my absolute hero.

“She’s the most remarkable woman in my life. It was just me and her for a long time growing up.

“She had me as a single mum, and moved with me down from Liverpool to Luton. We lived in a bedsit above a pet shop, but then she managed to get us council housing.

“She’s always worked incredibly hard. She used to work in pubs, clean houses, or do whatever she could to put food on the table.”

As a teenager, Stacey fell in with the wrong crowd, dating a drug-dealer and one of her close friend’s dying from a heroin overdose.

She told The Mirror: “Drugs were always available when I was growing up in Luton. My pals did loads of gear. Everyone was taking pills and sniffing coke. Boys would take pills at school in their lunch break, girlfriends did them after school, a boy I went about with was heavily involved with dealing coke.”
