TEXAS singer SHARLEEN SPITERI is engaged to marry celebrity chef BRYN WILLIAMS.
The Scottish star was spotted wearing a sparkler on her engagement finger as she appeared on the BBC Radio 2 Breakfast Show on Thursday (09Feb17) and after presenter Chris Evans jokingly pressured her about it, she revealed her longterm boyfriend had popped the question.
“I’m taking a bit of a beamer (Scottish slang for blushing). Only after 10 years, he’s actually asked to marry me,” she said. “Yeah, Bryn’s asked to marry me. I thought he was having a heart attack. Who knows what spurred him on?”
The 49-year-old also confirmed that she hadn’t yet gone down the aisle, jokingly adding, “Well, I ain’t married yet.”
Sharleen and Bryn, 39, live in London, England, where he is head chef of trendy restaurant Odette’s, but they often spend weekends with his family in Wales, where he opened a beach-front restaurant.
The singer was previously in a longterm relationship with magazine editor Ashley Heath, with whom she has a 14-year-old daughter named Misty Kyd. They announced their split in 2004.
She appeared on the radio station to promote Texas’ upcoming album Jump On Board and single Let’s Work It Out. The video for the single features her good pal, retired French soccer star Thierry Henry.
