A lad from Manchester’s proposal to his girlfriend has gone viral on social media and has already been viewed millions of times.
James Feetham and Morgan Evans had been friends for six years prior to getting together a year ago when their friendship blossomed into a romantic relationship during the first lockdown.
They decided to live together at the start of the pandemic as they believed it would only last for three weeks – but their relationship kept going from strength to strength.
“I just knew I wanted to marry her, and I thought ‘why am I wasting my time?” James told the MEN.
Eager to pop the question and with the pair having just recently moved house, James decided to organise a gathering of friends and family in their garden in Levenshulme to celebrate, but Morgan had no idea their housewarming party would soon turn into an engagement party instead.
Not only did Morgan say ‘yes’, but the proposal was captured on camera and posted by James to video sharing platform TikTok, where it’s since racked up over 1.3 million views.
But, it was the date that James chose to propose on that is particularly touching.
James was keen to get down on one knee on the 22nd May, as he knew this was a date that Morgan often felt rather sad and uneasy about.
Morgan – who is currently in second year of her nursing degree at the University of Salford and has worked on the frontline during the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as at the NHS Nightingale Hospital and on intensive care units in the autumn – attended the Ariana Grande concert at Manchester Arena when the attack occurred four years prior.
“Morgan was there when the arena bomb went off and though she wasn’t injured, she was there and remembers it.” James recalled.
“I can’t imagine what it must have felt like for her.
“Normally in the run up to the anniversary she feels quite on edge and upset [so] I was trying to think of a way that I could make it less of a negative day for her.”
“I’m just over the moon she said yes.” James added.
Morgan said: “I was completely shocked when I turned around and he was down on one knee.
“I think the day will always be bittersweet for me and I’ll always remember what happened, but what James has done has made me so happy and hopefully I can look forward to that day too, instead of dreading it.”
Trailer released for new Netflix drama series starring Michelle Keegan airing in the new year
The first trailer for a new Netflix show starring Michelle Keegan and Joanna Lumley has now been released.
In case you hadn’t heard, the highly-anticipated new crime drama show, which is titled Fool Me Once, is an adaptation of Harlan Coben’s popular novel, and is set to air on the streaming service as soon as 2024 arrives.
But now, the release of the first trailer has proved it looks brilliantly binge-worthy.
The eight-part series follows Manchester-born actress Michelle Keegan’s character, Maya Starn, who is a former special ops pilot struggling with the tragic murder of her husband, Joe, who is played by Richard Armitage.
Detective Sergeant Sami Kierce, who is portrayed by Adeel Akhtar, conducts the investigation into Joe’s death while wrestling with his own hidden truths.
Things start to get interesting though, when she observes via the nanny cam her supposedly deceased husband playing with their baby daughter in her own home.
Meanwhile, Maya’s niece and nephew embark on the journey to seek answers about their own mother’s murder which took place months ago.
But one question remains – could the two mysteries be related?
The first trailer for the show was released by Netflix at the end of last week, and it showcases a star-studded cast with the likes of Dame Joanna Lumley from Absolutely Fabulous, Adeel Akhtar from Sherwood, Emmett J Scanlan from Peaky Blinders, and Dino Fetscher from Paranoid.
The streaming service has unveiled a selection of first look images, showcasing a star-studded cast with the likes of Dame Joanna Lumley from Absolutely Fabulous, Adeel Akhtar from Sherwood, Emmett J Scanlan from Peaky Blinders, and Dino Fetscher from Paranoid.
Filming took place in Yorkshire, where production crews were spotted in the Burdock Way area near the centre of Halifax, but Michelle Keegan was also spotted filming in Manchester city centre back in May.
Fool Me Once will air on Netflix in the UK on Monday 1 January.

Timothée Chalamet thinks the sexiest British accent is… Hull?
Hollywood A-lister Timothée Chalamet has revealed the British accents he finds sexiest, and the results are unexpected.
The 27-year-old star of Wonka said that a Hull accent is up there as one of his favourites, along with Italian and French.
How does Timothée Chalamet even know about Hull’s existence, never mind know what the accent sounds like?
The star, who rose to astronomical fame back in 2017 with his portrayal of Elio in Call Me By Your Name, and has since starred in blockbusters such as Dune and Little Woman, revealed his favourite access on the current Wonka press tour, The Hoot reports.
Chalamet appeared on LadBible TV talking to Keegan-Michael Key, where they discuss the internet’s biggest debates.
In a segment where they debate the British accent, Chalamet goes on to reveal his top three British accents… and the answers are not what you would expect.
Firstly he admits his favourite is the Hull accent, he says: “I like the Hull accent. Hull is sexy”.
We’ve never thought of the Hull accent as particularly sexy before, but we will absolutely take it.
He then goes onto say: “I like Hull, Essex is my top three, and I like a middle-aged Yorkshire accent.”
We’re not sure the difference between a Yorkshire and a middle-aged Yorkshire accent, but what Timothée wants then Timothée will get.
In the comments, one person said: “I’m from Hull and nobody in Hull likes the Hull accent lol.”
Another joked: “suddenly i have the hull accent.”
And someone else wrote: “good day to have a hull accent.”
So thank you Timmy, we’d have to say that we wholeheartedly agree and that our accent is in fact, the sexiest of them all.
Next time we’d like to see you attempt a Yorkshire accent on the big screen, because we’re sure you’d absolutely smash it.
