Undateables viewers in tears over ‘sweetest proposal ever’

Undateables viewers were left in tears tonight over what they dubbed the "sweetest proposal ever".

Autistic Daniel Wakeford and Lily Taylor melted hearts during their appearance on the Channel 4 show last year as they met for the first time.

Now 12 months later, Daniel popped the question on a festive edition of the Channel 4 show.

Tonight, musician Daniel sang All I Want For Christmas Is You to Lily with the help of a choir.

He then got down on one knee to propose and lovingly placed a diamond ring on her finger when she said yes.


“I did it!” Daniel, 30, shouted afterwards. “We love each other. I’m feeling very excited. What’s the best feeling in the world? Love.”

Lily, 23, said: “I’m so very happy Daniel proposed. We’re getting married! I love him very much.”

Their families watched the romantic scenes at Brighton Bandstand, Lily’s favourite spot in their home town.

Lily’s mum Karen, 53, said: “We absolutely sobbed our socks off with joy.

“She has won the love lottery. Daniel is perfect for her. They really understand each other.”

Daniel’s dad Barry, 69, a retired hairstylist, said: “When he found Lily, all his Christmases came at once.”

And viewers flocked to Twitter in floods of tears.

One tweeted: "Having a little sob at #Undateables! Damn you."

While another commented: "I’m nearly crying here watching #Undateables."

A third remarked: "#Undateables IM. CRYING."
