He said, “After we got married, we finally moved into a new house. Shortly after we moved in, our house was broken into. It was insane.

“It’s everyone’s biggest fear and it was terrible. We saw on our CCTV camera this man in our yard, and luckily she and I were not in the house, but we saw it, called the police and drove home.

“It was insane when we saw on the cameras that the police arrived and we weren’t sure if the man had left. We arrived and the police had entered through the smashed window and the man was there for fifteen minutes.’

Joel described how the thief put shoes and handbags in boxes and he and Hannah were “traumatized” when they finally got home.

The former I’m A Celebrity star previously revealed the romantic, if slightly awkward, way he proposed to her.

During a performance on Celebrity Karaoke Club, he told Scarlett Moffatt and Jess Wright how he asked the question.

He said, ‘She was about to come home and I had lit about 150 candles or something. I got so hot, I sweated! I put on this classical music and it really made me sick.’

Joel quickly changed the music he was playing before Hannah got home, causing an awkward moment when he suggested it.

He said: ‘She was about to come home and I quickly turned it into a classic soundtrack with soundtrack.

“She came in and I got down on one knee and frankly, the moment I said, ‘Will you marry me?’ the Jurassic Park theme tune sounded.’
