When BLUE singer Antony Costa told his bandmates he was engaged to sweetheart LUCY BOLSTER they already knew - because his love for her was obvious.

The ONE LOVE crooner threw a Greek-themed, star-studded party in Sawbridgeworth, Hertfordshire recently to celebrate his engagement, and his bandmates couldn't be more pleased.

Bandmember Duncan James, who is dating dancer JANINE BOOSIE, gushes, "The party is great, a really nice day with glorious sunshine - you couldn't ask for more.

"We knew Antony was going to get engaged before he told us as it was pretty obvious how he and Lucy felt about each other. It's quite a tough business and it's good he has somebody like Lucy to support him."

Aside from fellow Blue boys Simon Webbe and Lee Ryan, other guests included the Sugababes and Mis-Teeq.
