The Wanted star Nathan Sykes overjoyed as he gets engaged in sweet beach proposal

The Wanted star Nathan Sykes has revealed the joyous news that he is engaged to his girlfriend, Charlotte Burke.

The 29 year old took to Instagram to share some loved-up snaps of the besotted couple as they celebrated the happy moment on a beach in St. Lucia.

Nathan revealed that he chose this exact spot due to its significant meaning to Charlotte – in that it was where her parents got married.

In the first snap, the pair can be seen sharing an overjoyed embrace, with Charlotte beaming as she wrapsher arms around Nathan's neck, whilst the ring box can still be seen clutched in Nathan's hand.

Charlotte wears a pretty floral printed co-ord with her long brown locks styled straight and sweeping past her waist, as Nathan dons a white short-sleeved checked shirt with his brown hair tied into a low bun for the occasion.

For the second snap, the happy couple face the camera and beam with the ocean and the stunning St. Lucian sunset in the background, which includes fluffy clouds scudding across a yellow sky.

The pair look thrilled as they pose for the selfie, with a clearly-elated Charlotte holding up her left hand to show off her stunning diamond ring.

Captioning the photos, Nathan wrote: "A few nights ago I took @_charlotteburke_ to the same beach in Saint Lucia that her parents got married on many years ago to ask her a certain question and … She Said Yes!!!"

Nathan's Instagram followers rushed to offer their congratulations, including Nathan's bandmate, Max George.

Max, who is currently smitten with actress Maisie Smith, posted not one, but two comments, the first of which read: "That’s AMAZING!!!!" whilst the second said: "Congrats to both of you!!" with a red love heart emoji.

A fan commented: "MY HEART IS SO HAPPY FOR YOU BOTH biggest congratulations EVER you two. This is the happy news 2022 needed. Sending all the love and congratulations in the world."

Someone else wrote: "Ahhh this is amazing!! Congrats to the both of you," whilst another added: "Congratulations and I hope you can always live with much happiness and health."

Nathan's happy news comes at the end of a tough year, after his former bandmate Tom Parker tragically passed away in March, aged just 33, after battling brain cancer.

Tom was first diagnosed with a brain tumour in 2020, where he was told that in was inoperable.

With this in mind, he warned he only had 12 to 18 months left to live.

Nathan recently opened up about Tom, as he said that The Wanted will "always be a five-piece", as he looked back on them supporting Tom when he joined them onstage for their Most Wanted: Greatest Hits tour, late into his battle with cancer.

He told The Mirror: "There are more important things and that time we had with Tom, looking back, is more important than anything.

"Especially the last show, it was a tough one, it was quiet afterwards, I think there was just this kind of energy in the air, that I've never really seen an arena like it, it was kind of a beautiful evening, but something I've never experienced."
