TV3 presenter Alan Hughes shocked audiences around the country on Ireland AM this morning by proposing to his long term partner, Karl Broderick.

The proposal follows the signing of the Marriage Bill 2015 into Irish law, which the couple were discussing during a segment of the TV3 morning show.

While the pair have been together for almost 22 years and are already civil partners, Alan wanted to reaffirm their commitment to one another. And what better way to do it than on national television.

After the proposal, Alan said,

I just felt it was the right time with the week that’s in it, with the passing of the Marriage Bill. Karl proposed to me after Celebrity Salon and I just felt this was the right time to make my feelings clear to him – and what better place than the Ireland AM set, which is very much like home, surrounded by my TV family.
