Flavia Cacace and Jimi MistryStrictly Come Dancing is as famous for its on-screen romances as for its dancing, and now Flavia Cacace and actor Jimi Mistry have became the latest pair to announce their engagement.

Flavia, 33, took to Twitter to announce the news to her 750,000 followers on Saturday.

She wrote: ‘Sorry I’ve been a bit quiet, wanted to wish you all a very happy new year. I’ve had a wonderful time and have some amazing news…all I need to say is @JimiMistry has made me the happiest girl in the world. Xxxx# engaged’.

Flavia and Jimi first met when they were paired together on the BBC show in 2010. Flavia broke up with her then-boyfriend, EastEnders actor Matt Di Angelo, and the pair have been dating ever since.

However, Flavia has hit out at claims she was previously engaged to ex-boyfriend and fellow dancer Vincent Simone. She added: ‘Contrary to some reports this is my first ever engagement. 🙂 xx’.

Congratulations to the happy couple. We can’t wait to see their first dance!
