HEIDI Range was in her pyjamas when fiance Dave Berry proposed to her on New Year's Eve.
Talking exclusively to OK! Magazine, Sugababe Heidi Range was wearing pyjamas and slippers when fiance Dave Berry popped the question on New Year's Eve.
The happy couple invited us round to chat about their romantic proposal, and Heidi told us she was definitely not expecting Dave to pop the question when he did.
She revealed: "Our flat overlooks Parliament and the London Eye and we’ve got amazing views of the fireworks on New Year’s Eve and there’s an amazing party atmosphere up there, so we decided to have a relaxed evening drinking champagne as we were flying early [to India] the next day.
"I was in my pyjamas putting the washing on while watching Love Actually and at five to midnight, I went to get my slippers to go on the roof terrace."
Dave added: "Shoes, not slippers! Meanwhile, I ran into the kitchen, quickly got the ring out of my pocket, opened the box and got down on one knee. I wasn’t prepared for Heidi being so long, though, so I had to keep changing knees because of the cramp!

"She eventually came round the corner clutching a bottle of champagne in her cleavage and that’s when I said to her: ‘Would you do me the honour of going to India with me as my fiancée?’ At that point, I’d love to say she said: ‘Yes, yes, yes!’ and had lots of tears, but Heidi just stood and stared at me for ages just shaking."
"Then I put the ring on her finger and she stood up and said: ‘Yes!’ It was romantic for a hundredth of a second before Heidi went: ‘Ooh let me look at the ring!’"
The pair, who have been dating for seven years, are planning a wedding for October 2011 and can't wait to start planning the huge bash.
Dave said: "It’ll be in London, it’s the best city in the world and it’s where all our friends are. Everyone can have a great time and just get a taxi home."
And Heidi already has her mind set on a Vera Wang gown for the big day, she added: "I haven’t tried any yet but when I did a gig in Barbados with the Sugababes, Vera Wang’s daughter came up to me and said: ‘My mum was at the gig and she’d love to make you a wedding dress.’ I nearly passed out, I’ve always dreamt of a Vera Wang wedding dress!"
