It’s a wedding proposal - oh yes it is!
Hopeless romantic Darren Brown, with the help of Widow Twanky and the cast of Aladdin at Cast, Doncaster, made the festive period just a little bit more special for his unassuming girlfriend Caroline by popping the big question during the Boxing Day performance of the show - and both he and the audience were delighted when she said yes!
Writing down a few special words for Widow Twanky to read out to Caroline, who admitted she was “shocked” and “slightly confused at first” Darren went down on one knee in front of the whole auditorium and asked Caroline to be his wife.
“After Widow Twanky read out what I gave him he shouted where’s Darren. I went down on one knee, the glitter ball started spinning - my heart was pounding a bit to be honest as well – and she said yes. I couldn’t believe it!”.
The couple are now planning a small overseas wedding.
