Elaine helps fan propose on her radio show

Published:

Last Sunday, Elaine helped devoted BBC Radio 2 fan Pieter propose to his boyfriend Keith, live on air.

Keith and Pieter regularly tune in every Sunday to Elaine’s radio show on BBC  Radio 2. Keith however was given the shock of his life when the presenter called him up live on air – after agreeing to help out Pieter with his big proposal. Pieter, who had previously contacted Elaine explaining why he wanted to marry his partner, agreed to let her read his heartfelt letter to his partner live on air:

“…Every day with Keith is better then watching our favourite musical – Priscilla Queen of the Desert….Being with Keith means that silence can be just as comfortable as a full on debate as whether Imelda Staunton will win an Olivier award.”

Elaine subsequently revealed that Pieter was on the other line and had something he’d like to add. Pieter then asked Keith to marry him – to which Keith happily accepted!

Congratulations Pieter and Keith!!
