Taking to Instagram to share the news, Montana posted a black and white shot of Mark getting down on one knee on the beach with the caption: "13.04.23," alongside a heart and ring emoji.

At the time, she shared some adorable photo booth snaps and wrote: "Appreciating my hunky man. I know I’m a handful but that’s why you have two hands."

A source told MailOnline: "Mark has a proprietary interest in Forge Gym London. That's likely how he met Montana.

"He used to be out of shape and is now very much in shape. He's a very wild bloke to go on a night out with, drinks a lot. Very good fun to be with."

They added: "His father owns a huge development/construction firm which he will inherit."

Speaking to new magazine, Montana revealed: "Mine and Mark’s relationship was born out of the second lockdown. I feel like good things always come when you are not expecting it.

"It's been lovely to feel in a good headspace. Last year I convinced myself that I didn’t want to meet anyone – I'd be on my own forever instead, but he came along when I wasn’t looking."

Montana and Mark initially met during the second national lockdown initially took their relationship slow before moving to share the “same bubble” so they could see each other freely while still complying with social distancing guidelines.
