Kelly Brook has suggested she has become engaged to former Gladiators star David McIntosh.

The model and Celebrity Juice panellist posted a picture online in which she and her boyfriend posed next to a balloon bearing the word "engaged".

Accompanying the image on Instagram, she wrote: "Lovely weekend in Wigan meeting my new extended family.

"Such happy times and excited to share my life with the most wonderful man I've ever met," the 34-year-old added.

The couple, said to have been dating for around three months after getting together at a New Year's Eve party at Kelly's London bar and restaurant Steam & Rye, were reported to have split briefly in February.

Brook was previously engaged to Titanic actor Billy Zane, before they split in August 2008. She has also dated rugby players Thom Evans and Danny Cipriani, and actor Jason Statham.

Brook's agent did not wish to comment about whether her client was actually engaged.
