The media personality, who shares daughter India with ex Josh Patterson, discussed her romance in an interview with Hello!.
The TV star said: ‘I’ve always wanted to get married, but I never minded when. I’ve never been one of those girls who have their picture perfect wedding in their head and know what ring they want, but it would be nice to have that one day.’
On knowing he was ‘The One’ shortly after they embarked on a romance, the mother-of-one said: ‘I knew he was special soon after I met him. We just got on really well and we laughed the whole time.’
The brunette previously spent lockdown in the countryside with her daughter and partner, who is managing director at a global executive search and consulting firm.

In October Binky revealed she suffered a miscarriage earlier this year.
The TV personality was expecting with fiancé Max but sadly miscarried at the 12 week mark, leaving the couple ‘heartbroken’.
‘Heartbroken’: Binky recently revealed she suffered a miscarriage earlier this year
She wrote: ‘I’ve thought long and hard about doing this post, but I felt that if I can pass on any warmth, comfort or help to anybody in the same position – well that would be great. It’s only fair that I share some of my “downs” as well as my “up” moments.
‘Today would have been my 18 week mark, but sadly we had an early miscarriage just before 12 weeks. Not only was this heartbreaking for us, but it also came as such a shock to me.
‘I hadn’t realised until then how blessed I was with having such a relatively straight forward pregnancy with India – I’ll admit I was naive enough to assume the next one would be as straightforward, but I had two early scans as I was concerned I was bleeding. They found a very strong heartbeat. However, on the third scan I was told “I’m afraid there’s no heartbeat”.
‘I was told by my doctor that 1 in 4 pregnancies miscarry (not that statistics make it any easier!) With 82% of my following being women – that means roughly 237,800 women “following” me could (or have) experienced the same, which is just so sad.

‘When speaking to a few close friends about our situation, we learned that some of them too have had miscarriages in the past. I asked them why they’ve never said anything, and they just said they felt they couldn’t, or shouldn’t talk about it. Almost like it’s a taboo subject, which is heartbreaking.
‘If you have been through this, I hope you are giving yourself time to mentally and physically heal and do what you need. I keep reminding myself that there was nothing I could have done, and perhaps this was nature’s way of saying that for whatever reason, this little soul wasn’t ready for the world. Sending so so much love .
‘I later learned that @miscarriageassociation is available to help anyone who has/is experiencing this. It’s a national charity that provides support and information for anyone who’s affected by miscarriage or ectopic pregnancy, this includes both women and men.
‘You can call their helpline or talk to them on live chat or even message them on Instagram, and they will do whatever they can to help you through.’
If you have been affected by this story, you can seek advice at www.miscarriageassociation.org.uk or by calling 01924 200 799.
