Darcy Winter, a first year music student, was at the ball.

She told the Tab: ‘When he got up on the stage after Alice winning ‘most romantic BUM’ I knew something was up. After a while the singers were interrupted and he went straight in with “I’ve spoken to your parents” and got down on one knee.

Everyone was screaming and I could hardly hear what was happening but from the kiss afterwards it had to be a yes!’
