British Tv star Claire Sweeney is engaged.

The actress/Tv presenter is set to walk down the aisle with 27-year-old Daniel Riley, who is 14 years her junior, after he proposed on Christmas Eve (24Dec12).

The pair will wed later this year (13) in the House of Lords in London.

Telling Britain's Hello! magazine her happy news, she says, "The reason I've never married or had children is because I take it very seriously and I hadn't met the right person.

"I'm a workaholic. I've had a great life and a fabulous career. It would take a very special man to make me stop and want to be with them. Daniel is that person. I was thrilled when he asked me to be his wife."
