Public records obtained by the website state the expiration date for the license is September 6 2021 – meaning they were to wed within the year.

Lily and David originally sparked engagement rumours in May, when she revealed a distinctive looking ring on social media.

Last month, a source told MailOnline the duo are smitten with each other after growing close when lockdown lifted, and meeting Amber’s family together in Wales.

An insider said: ‘Amber and Nick are so happy together. In the past Amber has kept her romantic life private but she’s so in love with Nick. 

‘After meeting her family the weekend she knew it was the right time to share her new relationship with her fans.

‘Nick is a normal guy who isn’t in the spotlight, which is why Amber kept his Instagram profile untagged from their posts together.

Megan Barton Hanson has given fans a glimpse inside her new home after climbing the first rung on the property ladder.

The former Love Island star has spent her modelling and endorsement fees wisely by purchasing her very first home as an independent woman, and posts shared on Instagram suggest she’s been given plenty of bang for her buck.

In a short video posted on Wednesday, Megan, 26, revealed a tastefully furnished apartment, featuring a walk-in kitchen complete with an electric glass splash back, a ‘futuristic’ five-ring hob and its very own wine fridge.

Panning her smartphone across the polished silver cooker, she admitted: ‘All I can cook is a Pot Noodle and a fried egg, but look at this bad boy – it’s like something from Star Trek. I love it.’

The TV personality also revealed a long work kitchen island that could easily double as a dining table, adorned with congratulatory gifts and cards from her loved ones.

Sharing a shot of her presents – which included two bottles of champagne – she wrote: ‘Today I got the keys to my first home. I’m so overwhelmed. I’ve never felt so lucky in my life, proper pinch me moment! Hahahaha I’m dead! Send help!’

Elsewhere Megan showed off a plush living room, of which the focal point appeared to be a comfortable looking forest green sofa.

With a stylish zebra print rug decorating the faux-wooden flooring – a recurring theme throughout the apartment – it looked as if Megan had wasted no time in stamping her identity on her new home. 

Framed contemporary prints were also visible on minimal white painted walls, while a corner contained strategically placed plants and a small table.

Megan also gave fans a glimpse of her balcony, ideal for entertaining during long summer nights, and a partial view of her neatly manicured garden. 

The model had previously rented a north London home with ex-boyfriend Wes Nelson and pet goldfish Jon Snow prior to their split in 2019, but her latest is the first she can call her own. 

It comes after Megan revealed she and ex Wes did have sex in the toilets at Southend Airport after they were seen slipping into the disabled loos in August 2018.

She has since confirmed they were caught as she recommended ‘going beyond the bedroom’ while offering sex tips to partners in The Sun.

Writing with advice to boyfriends and partners on how to please women, Megan suggested that mixing up the routine and location can add an extra thrill.

She wrote: ‘Go beyond the bedroom. I might not suggest Southend Airport’s toilets where Love Island’s Wes Nelson and I got caught, but even a different room in the house can be thrilling.’
