The couple announced their engagement in May after two years of dating.
They met on the Pointless star’s game show, with Richard previously telling HELLO magazine, “Ingrid came on House of Games. I knew who she was through social media. We had never met – I had never met her. I had a little twinkle in my eye, I admit.
“She came on, we filmed that day together. Our first date is entirely on camera. After filming I thought, “How can I ask her for a drink, this is hard.”‘
