It’s not every day you go to watch a pantomime and find one of the lead actors going off script to propose to his girlfriend.
During a singalong section of the show, Adam told the audience he was going to give a present to his girlfriend of four years, Karen Tomkins.
Following cries of “It’s behind you” from the audience, Karen turned round to find Adam on one knee.
He said he had been planning the stunt for more than six months and added: “I’m over the moon that Karen said yes… if she had said no it would have gone viral and that would have been awkward.”
The bride-to-be, who made it through to the semi-finals of Britain’s Got Talent in 2011, said: “It’s not really sunk in yet. I can’t believe it happened, but every time I tell someone I feel so happy and excited. Getting engaged this way was so amazing.”
