Desperate Wives heartthrob Jesse Metcalfe is rumoured to be planning to propose to Girls Aloud star Nadine Coyle, a newspaper reports.

Star of John Tucker Must Die, the actor has been spotting looking at engagement rings and has reportedly booked a romantic winter getaway to Dubai.

A source told The People newspaper that: "He wants to make it up to Nadine, so he's booked a five-star hotel and has made sure they can spend some quality time together - just the two of them."

The couple reportedly split briefly last month due to the strains of their long-distance, transatlantic relationship. Yet if reports of upcoming matrimony are true, the love is very much alive between the pair.

Nadine, 20, met the hunk, most famous for his gardening skills in Wisteria Lane, in Australia in February. The singer, who earned a place in Girls Aloud through the 2002 television talent show Popstars: The Rivals, had reportedly fancied Metcalfe for a while before meeting him and was determined to get her man!

If Nadine says yes, could her wedding ever top the glamour and sheer opulence of band mate Cheryl Tweedys nuptials to footballer, Ashley Cole? With Cheryls dress reported to have cost £100,000, Nadine better start shopping!
