Congratulations are in order if rumours are to be believed that Charlie Brooker is engaged to former Blue Peter presenter Konnie Huq.

It has been reported that the pair had planned to marry in Las Vegas before Huq was offered a chance to host The Xtra Factor – an opportunity the television personality couldn’t face turning down. The star stands to make £165,000 from the series after a fairly protracted absence from British television screens.

A source has been quoted by The Sun as saying: “Konnie’s really upset as she was looking forward to getting away with Charlie. She kept joking they were going away to have a shotgun wedding. You never know with those two though – that might be why she was so gutted about cancelling it.”

Huq made a cameo appearance in Brooker’s Screenwipe last year which is where it is rumoured the pair struck up a relationship.
