She’d captioned the image: ‘I have no words for how happy I am. My fiancé my everything @ab_bowen this was magical. So magical.’

Alex, 25, posted a close-up of the ring, which features a diamond-encrusted band and a large square stone. He wrote: ‘She said yes 💗🗽 @oliviadbuck.’

But unfortunately for Olivia, her ring reveal didn’t go without a hitch. She’s been forced to hit back after being criticised for, er, wearing her jewel on the wrong finger.

Explaining that this is just an optical illusion caused by her front camera, she told fans on Instagram: ‘When does this sink in. Last night was the most amazing thing 😩😍❤️ this is a selfie it is on my left hand haha ❤️.’

However, the jibes seemed to continue and she ranted on Twitter last night: ‘People messaging me like you do know your meant to wear your ring on the left hand. When did everyone get so dumb? Like. Please god help you.’

She later summed it up with: ‘Dese b****es blinded by jealousy man. ❤️❤️.’

Oosh. You tell ’em, gal.
