Emmerdale: Amy Walsh is engaged to boyfriend Bradley Jaden
The actress, who plays Tracy Metcalfe in the ITV soap, managed to keep the exciting news a secret after not suspecting a thing at the time.
Speaking to OK! Magazine, the 29-year-old sister of Girls Aloud star Kimberley revealed how her husband-to-be popped the question in August 2016 while they were on holiday at the Phuket rainforest resort of Keemala.
Amy commented: "I genuinely didn’t know what was happening until he got down on one knee. I just thought, no, this can’t be that! Then I burst into tears.
"We were both crying and then he said some lovely things, but I can’t remember what they were!"
