‘But I just thought, this isn’t about me. The reason I’m here, in this position, is that I speak up and do something. ‘

It comes after Little Mix was forced to postpone their upcoming Confetti World Tour, their first without Jesy Nelson, to 2022 due to the Covid pandemic.

Andre, who plays for Watford FC, introduced Leigh-Anne to their home during the lockdown in May.

Leigh-Anne explained the moment Andre got down on one knee, saying he ‘lit candles like something out of a movie’.

Speaking on Bumble’s “ My Love Is … ” podcast in November, she said the pair were watching a movie at the time.

She continued: ‘Then it fell out and there were pictures of us, it played our song, then the screen turned to’ Will you marry me? ‘and he was on one knee. ‘

Andre said he had been planning to put the question to Leigh-Anne for quite some time, but struggled after the first UK lockdown was enacted in March.

He also said his sister stepped in to help him carry out the proposal and make sure he could make the moment as romantic as possible.

Leigh-Anne and Andre first announced their engagement when they celebrated their fourth anniversary.

Shortly after, Leigh-Anne herself responded to the news, writing, ‘Guys .. wtf just happened … He fucking did it, and I said yes …

‘I’m marrying my soul mate, the man of my flipping dreams … I’m lost for words so I think I’m just going to cry a little more @andregray_ I love you so much. My world is literally complete ‘.

It comes after Leigh-Anne and her Little Mix bandmates Jade Thirlwall, 28, and Perrie Edwards, 27, announced they had to postpone their Confetti tour until April 2022.

The group – who released their Confetti album in November – said in a series of tweets, ‘You know how much we love being on the road and performing for you all every night.

However, due to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic, we must prioritize the safety of our fans and crew and help stop the spread.

That’s why we’re so sad to say the Confetti tour will be postponed to April 2022.

‘All tickets are valid for the corresponding rescheduled dates and we are taking this opportunity to add an extra show for our fans in Cardiff. (sic) ‘
