The couple had enjoyed a romantic dinner together before the show and discussed their plans for the future.

“He said he definitely wanted to down the line. It was a really lovely conversation. He told me that he knew we would be together for the rest of our lives.

“It was terrifying, but Adele was saying how she gets nervous as well. I was just so happy to be standing there with Adele. It was worthwhile, a once in a lifetime opportunity.
