The morning after: Strictly Come Dancing champion Harry Judd emerged from his hotel this morning clutching his Glitterball trophy and girlfriend Izzy Johnston
They have been one of the most low-key couples in showbusiness.
But after Harry Judd's Strictly Come Dancing victory on Saturday and subsequent revelation that he plans to propose to girlfriend Izzy Johnston, the couple have been thrust firmly into the spotlight.
Photographers were waiting for the McFly drummer and his long-time love outside their hotel yesterday, and they happily obliged with big smiles and a kiss for the cameras.
Bright future: Shortly after winning the series, the McFly drummer revealed his plans to propose to his long-time love
The 25-year-old King of the dancefloor and his 27-year-old violinist girlfriend were dressed down for the journey home from Blackpool.
They both looked a little tired after celebrating well into the morning with Harry's fellow Strictly contestants and McFly bandmates.
The champion clutched his other trophy - a smaller replica of the dazzling Glitterball he was awarded with dance partner Aliona Vilani.
PDA: The couple were caught kissing on camera during the celebrations at the end of last night's final
The musician was pictured arriving at the final after-party with his bandmate Dougie Poynter, who won I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here! just a few weeks ago.
After toasting his success, Judd retreated to his hotel room, where he let fans in on his cosy celebration.
He tweeted a picture of his Glitterball trophy, a bottle of water and a takeaway pizza, writing: 'People asked me what I would do tonight to celebrate....here's your answer.'
Long term: The musical duo have been dating for six years after meeting on McFly's 2005 tour
'I absolutely know 100 per cent that in her I have found The One, and yes I do want marriage, kids, the whole deal with Izzy.'
The couple met back in 2005, when Izzy was a member of the string section during McFly's arena tour.
They have previously revealed how she was 'banned' from speaking to the drummer for the entire tour, but the pair got together during a party to celebrate the end of the tour.
